About Our Remanufactured 48RE Transmission
At Reman-Transmission, we go a step beyond the typical rebuild process. Whereas a reconditioned 48RE transmission merely has its worn-out or defective parts replaced with new components, leaving other parts untouched, our remanufactured 48RE transmissions undergo a complete overhaul. Every component is replaced with new or remanufactured parts that exceed Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) standards. Additionally, we fix any known factory defects associated with the 48RE transmission, that way you’ll rest easier knowing you can get into the zone and focus on getting your swap in place without worrying about your transmission’s condition.
A remanufactured 48RE transmission can provide rock-solid reliability and impressive performance, all at a lower cost than a refurbished or reconditioned transmission. When you buy from us at Reman-Transmission, you’ll also get an up to 5-years unlimited mileage warranty and a waived core charge for 30 days, along with free shipping and excellent customer support. We rigorously inspect and test each specific part, so you’ll know you have an excellent product that offers top reliability.
We also offer a complete lineup of used 48RE transmissions if you are looking for a more affordable transmission swap option. When you search for “used 48re transmissions near me” or “used 48re transmissions for sale” and browse our online catalog, you will see a vast selection of used transmissions to choose from. We go the extra mile to make sure each used transmission is in working condition and ready to swap in your ride.
Whether you own an American or foreign car, truck, or SUV, finding the right supplier who can source the best used or refurbished 48RE is no easy feat. Fortunately, the experts at Reman-Transmission are here to make that job a bit easier. Get in touch with our company for more questions or ask for a quote.

48RE Transmission Remanufacturing Process
Our 48RE transmission Upgrades
A remanufactured and improved torque converter is included with every transmission.
To eliminate the possibility of front seal leaks, vibration, and premature bushing wear, all torque converters are tested for leaks, lock-up, concentricity, and balance.
Every fully remanufactured valve body, with complete system correction and recalibration kit, is tested independently.
All wear-prone valves are restored to stringent specifications and vacuum tested to confirm proper function.
Each remanufactured transmission is hot, cold, load, and simulated road tested using our proprietary CARS (Computer-Aided Road Simulation) dynamometer program.
All remanufactured transmissions are backed by the industry's best, no-hassle nationwide warranty.

48RE History & Information
The story of the electronically controlled Dodge 48RE transmission starts with the 47RE, which itself was a heavy-duty version of the 46RE, and traces its roots all the way back to the TorqueFlite 727 3-speed automatic transmission. Available in 2WD and 4WD configurations, the 48RE shares the same gear ratios as its predecessor, but features stronger and heavier components for improved durability. An integrated “tow/haul” mode was also included, which locked out 4th gear (overdrive) and engaged the torque converter lockup to reduce powertrain stresses under load. The 48RE found a home in the full-size Dodge Ram 2500 and Dodge Dodge Ram 3500 truck from 2003 to 2007, where it was usually paired with the 5.9 Cummins ISB (24 valve) turbo diesel engine. With an actual input torque specification between 560 and 570 lb-ft, Cummins-equipped Rams were detuned via ECU from their 610 lb-ft of torque to better accommodate the 48RE’s lower torque limits. During the 2005 model year, the pairing received an advanced electronically controlled Transmission Throttle Valve Actuator that eliminated the previous Throttle Valve Cable, along with the TVC’s linkage. The 48RE is not related to the TorqueFlite (or TorqueCommand) A904, later known as the 30RH, which was a smaller transmission developed for lighter duty applications in Jeep and older AMC vehicles.
Overall, the 48RE proved to be a reliable, compatible transmission with plenty of potential for stock, street and race applications, plus parts commonality with the 46RE and 47RE made it easy and cheap to modify and repair. If you’re thinking about using a 48RE for your next transmission swap project or simply need a reliable replacement for your vehicle, a remanufactured transmission from Reman-Transmission is your best option. Our range of remanufactured transmissions come drop in ready and are built to professional standards with the highest quality components available. Whether you own a domestic or a foreign auto, there’s a good chance we have the right transmission you need for sale.
