G56 is the newest 6 speed used in new Dodges. It is the most durable stick shift used in a Cummins pickup from the factory. It is a Mercedes transmission.

Anyways, the Getrag was known for its unreliability. Thats just the way it is. NV4500 is more reliable but it does have that 5th gear nut issue which is not hard to fix.

The NV5600 is rated for more power than the NV4500 but parts are much more expensive and plenty of problems were reported even at stock power levels.
Now they run the G56 and its the "cat's meow".

Aisin automatics are rated for far more power than even the G56, 850ft-lbs vs 660 ft-lbs and some years were 600ft-lbs.

They say the new Aisin can handle up to 950ft-lbs. The 68RFE could handle more than the manual as well.

There are plenty of people out there who have had no issues with any of the stick shifts. The most common misconception is that the manual transmissions are more reliable than automatics. Mild upgrading with a good torque converter makes an automatic way more durable than the manual.

If you interested in any kind of upgrades to your 1st gen with a Getrag, you should consider just dropping in the NV4500. Very common, relatively cheap and will hold more power than what its rated for so long as you dont drive like an idiot.

There are several heavy-duty transmissions that can be made to fit as well. Or you can use an Allison:

There's a guy who figured out that if you use an Allison out of a medium-duty application (4500-up), due to some of them being available with a cat, they have three speed sensors, so the only signal you need is TPS, and a way to convert the signal from the output to something the odometer can read.
