47re vs. 47rh

As my sig says, I've got a 97 with the 47re, and I love this truck. I've got a chance to buy a 95 4wd, xcab, AT 3.54, half the miles, really clean, and I could buy it with the proceeds of selling my 97 ( I don't need, nor can afford, two trucks). Is there a major difference between the re and rh (mostly hydraulic vs. electric, this I know), as far as performance and reliability? Does the rh wear out faster, or not shift as well?

correct me if i am wrong but both transmissions run the same shafts and clutches...

Pretty but the same minus the hydraulic/electric stuff...

I also believe the fastest diesel truck runs a 47RH transmission...

That has happened to me 2.76 times, and both times I was only wearing boxers while driving so it was really embarrassing.

Yes, from what i have read, its basically the same trans.

And yes, typically the mechanical things in this world are less problematic, granted they are set up correctly.

Same parts and same repair manual. Just computer-contolled shifts that you can do with a valve body fix just as well.

different plugs yes (more wires on the RE obviously)

Check here at the bottom of the page for deciphering the numbers on the trans
