You can make an Allison 1000 work behind anything you want, if money isnt a concern. Adaptation costs in addition to the cost of the transmission itself suddenly make the cost to bulletproof your current Dodge transmission seem small.

I added that as a side note. I didn't say it would be cost-effective. A guy did it with an 85 crew cab that he swapped a Cummins into. Said even with 3.07 gears, reverse was still SLOW!

I think having a slow reverse is good. My NV4500 reverse is somewhat slow but I wouldnt mind if it was much slower for backing up the gooseneck.

The NV5600 is an expensive transmission to repair and parts are getting harder to find. Try finding one to begin with.

Like I said, rebuilding a manual is usually cheaper especially if you factor how many miles you should get between overhauls, less maintenance intervals.

The NV5600 is one manual that is not cheaper to overhaul than a typical auto. But even then, get one with the hole drilled for better lubrication and your talking 400,000 mile overhauls.

Every time I've had to back up a gooseneck with a manual I've pulled the truck down into low range first. I'm like you, slower reverse is better. Don't know why they can't put a slower reverse gear in something that is probably going to at some point have to go backwards with a trailer.
Probably so they can sell more clutches.

Well all the people that use to complain about the SLOW rev. in the OLD four speed and FIVE speeds they must have thought that by makin it faster would be better to go backwards quicker . The OLD four speed truck transmissions were just fine for backing a trailer with out slipping the clutch . The only down fall was they plum sucked for plowing snow when you needed a little speed when backing up. And they did not have a scycro first , so we got to make them better for the other people me need to put scycro's on first and rev. and make rev faster for them people that are in a hurry . Since they are for the most part going to the store with there crew cab diesel dulleys with leather heated seats with plush carpeting and power this and that . what ever happened to plain Jane rubber floor mats vinyl seats ?? truck gets dirty inside open both doors and turn the garden hose loose on the inside then blow gun the excess water out . Now i have a Dodge and it is sorta a plain jane but has cloth seats but i can still clean the rubber floor mat with the garden hose . But let me go on a service call to a dairy farm and have to go fix a skid steer in the freestall barn and my seats smell like the barn for a couple months .

The 6-speeds seem geared ok in reverse, but I do use low range for tight quarters, mainly to keep the RPM's up for power steering speed.
1/2 ton 5-speeds are useless for any real work. 3/4 and 1 ton 5-speeds seem better.
The whole lack of manual this and rubber that is the general pickup buying population was more focused on car like qualities as opposed to working items.
I do not like my carpet floor. Fun keeping manure and mud off of it despite rubber floor mats on top.
