What do I need

Well I guess I am going with an automatic in the F450. Not because I want to but because my wife will kill me if I don't. Anyway I am going in to this with the assumption that the 5R110 is like any other Ford auto and is a boat anchor from the factorie. I know what a 4R100 needs to be reliable-ish but what do I need to a 5R110. Remember this truck will be maxed out on GVWR often so it needs to take the abuse. Do these still use the 6.0 trans cooler. What about filtration? Can you do a TC lock up on these like the 7.3's? Any trans advise is appreciated!

I cant believe I am about to do this!

The trans cooler is humungo. It already has external filtration.

Cant do a lockup switch. Its all done via tuning with the 5r.

Basically unless you are planning on consistantly running over 500whp while towing. Get in it and drive it

The 5R110 is actually very reliable from the factory. It is electrically controlled, which eliminates some of the major fail points that were present in the 4R100's.

Yes the TC can lock up, just as Dave just mentioned, through the tune.

Good luck with the truck search!!

That is what I am hoping. I think it is physically impossible to put a bigger cooler in then the one I had in my last truck and sometimes it didn't seem like enough.

So the cooler is bigger then the 6.0? Thats good. Do all tuners offer a lock-up? Remember, I am not looking for HP, just fuel economy. As much as I hate to say it I dont even want to delete the EGR and DPF until its out of warranty.

Thanks, I really hope this does not bite me in the @$$. There are few things in the truck world I hate as much as an automatic and my last two were both absolute nightmares. Like I said, I am only doing this because my wife will probably shoot me if I don't. She is likely to drive it ans much as I am.

If you get an sct tuner, you can select aggresive tow/haul in the options for your transmission tune.

If you turn the aggresive tow/haul on in the tune, everytime you push the trailer button on the end of the shifter it will downshift alot earlier when you let off of the accelerator. It helps if you have a heavy load when towing. To me it feels like when you hit the brakes it also downshifts automatically.

Geez, I'd hate to see you loose the manual just because shes gonna complain the few times she may end up driving it.

My future wife isn't gonna be able to tell me what I can buy and drive, but I suppose thats why I'm still single. Although, I'd be willing to buy her whatever vehicle she wants without my input as long as she doesn't say anything about my vehicle choice.

Plus, she gets to set up the house and bedroom how she wants. If I'm gonna be a grown man sleeping in a room with flowers on the wall and more pillows on the bed than I can count, then I get to pick my truck, garage, and other vehicles I pay for the way I want...
