    I have a 2000 and a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 with gas 5.9 liter engine do they have the same transmission?

    I do believe so. I don't think they changed the auto's until '03.5. Assuming both are auto's. If not then yes they do if they are both 5 speeds.

    If you have a 360 gas engine with an auto transmission it will have a 46RE ( this is the same trans used in both 1/2 tons and 3/4 tons with the 5.9 gas engine) the 47RE is the auto used with the V10 and Cummins. We have lots of these trucks, most of them get a rebuild every year.

    if they get rebuilt every year find a new tranny shop. You can make the 47re into one hell of a tough tranny by changing valve body and convertor and a couple other small mods. cost you and extra grand a rebuild but you wont have to rebuild them again for a while

    If you got 360's and there 2500's you have the 46RE. Its not that bad of a tranny bolted to the magnum since the motor isnt nearly as powerful as the CTD that was eating up 47re

    The best thing is they are a really simply transmission to overhaul.
