I like my 19 with Aisin but Hate the lack of response from a dead stop!! I won’t go back to the 68 rfe either.
Make sure you drive a 19 before you buy one and pay close attention to how it responds when you get on it and need to go from a stop, it’s terrible. At this point I honestly can’t say I’d buy the truck again.

I have a 2019 3500 with the aisin. Love it. This is my 3rd one with the aisin. 2015 had 3.73 and aisin and 2018 had 4.10 and aisin. This new 2019 has the HO (1000ft lb) with the 3.73. All duallys and all 4wd. I tow almost daily and sometimes upwards of 20k lbs. All have been deleted with 50/100 horse tunes and never had an issue; or major issue. I have had to have them flashed to relearn because of some ty shift points that got stuck, but other than that, they have been great. If you want it, get it, you won’t regret it. But if you feel like you don’t need that much truck, get the 2500 and spring for the aisin or the 68.

As mentioned, the aisin doesn’t like a lot of added power, but if you drive it smart and treat it right, it will last you a long time. I probably won’t delete this 2019... the dealership I deal with really busted my balls about the delete. Had to put it all back to stock (I know I should have anyways) but they never jack with me on it. This time though, they made it clear that they are getting hammered and don’t want to deal with it...

I had the money to spend on the upgrade so I did. Would I I do it again, probably, but the added cost and fuel consumption when empty would be something for me to consider. Reason for the trade was a front end issue that FCA refused to acknowledge and nothing to do with trans.

I love the way the Aisin drives. Holds gears, not in any rush to upshift and does what I need it to do when towing. My only gripe is the 1st gear. I sure wish I could skip it and start from 2nd unless towing heavy.

[QUOTE=MileHiGuy;29070747]
This.
If you donít like how the truck runs, your pretty much stuck because the Aisin canít be tuned. I live at high altitude and the dead pedal and slowness drives me nuts but there is not much I can seem to do about it. Tried with a emissions in tact tune from calibrated power and it only made more top end power and nothing to improve response and low end. In fact it towed worse in the lower rpm range so I removed it and now have an expensive paperweight.

Drove a 19 Aisin and although the 3.73ís help, I am not convinced that it is enough of an improvement for me.[/QUOTE

There is a snake oil box out there that does pretty much resolve the dead pedal, I run one and it has helped out immensely with my Aisin trans on my DRW 3500.
