    Really? What,no computer? Just switches? What about the valve body? How is shifting controlled?

      How far is Alberta? By the way why not use a 42 instead of a 46?

      The number designation is it's torque handling capacity. So a 42 is weaker than a 46.Really probably makes literally no difference.Trans will get built to handle shit anyways.I'll probably consider them all.Important part is no electronic trans need apply.

      Care to elaborate on this at all? I’ve looked (a few years ago) for a stand-alone 46RE controller and came up empty. Few guys on the Dakota sites were trying to figure it out but no one I could find had one running. Any links or info?

      I actually just stumbled on it the other day. I swore the Compushift worked on the RE transmissions but they are for the RH.
      Dodge Transmission | E-TransControl
      I spoke to US Shift several months ago when wiring a Quick 2 for a 4R70W about supporting the RE/RH transmissions and they didn't seem to think there was a market for it.

        That's the only one I know of. I really tried with the owner of US Shift. Super nice guy and they make a nice product, he just didn't think it would be as popular as I did.

        Alberta is at least an 8 hour drive one way.Better off having it shipped.

        Not yet! Kinda need the trans first lol. Might actually be easier and cheaper sourcing a trans out of Washington state.Spokane is only 2.5 hours away,plus much bigger market.

            Ok.Then the o/d needs a steady voltage supplied by a switch?Lock up same idea?So there IS a simple way to make an Re work?

            I see two ways that you could do it.
            1 is to just have the power going through a switch on your dash or console or wherever going to the overdrive pin and another wire and switch going to the lockup pin on the side of the transmission.
            That way you can physically Lock it or overdrive it when you want to.
            2 Is to use pressure switches to control when it shifts into over and lu. With a switch on the console or dash to shut them off.
            You would want to make sure it only works in 3rd gear either way.

            So this would mean the biggest problem I now have is finding a 2WD output shaft and housing...Hmmm! If I can get this trans dirt cheap why not try!

            I guess that means you don't need any input for me so I'm out of here.
