4-5 shift

does anybody elses truck shift from 4-5 pretty early. Seems like im in 5th gear doing like 35-40 mph.

Also, is there an overdrive in 5th and 6th gear? it seems like the torque converter locks in 5th and 6th gear.

Mine seems to interchange the order. Sometimes it skips 5 altogether. I think it's designed that way depending on load .

I wish they would have extended the 5-6th shift from 45 to 50-55mph. My old 2004 6.0 also shift into 5th at 45mph. It seems like they added a 6th gear but did just added it to the lower end.

Don't you have a 6.0? You only have 5 gears.

That's the way everything is now, shift early to "maximize" fuel economy. My truck also hit 6th around 40-45mph, it depends on the throttle position too obviously.

no i got a 6.7 diesel with the 6 speed.

Thats what I have been told, shift early to maximize fuel economy. I guess I just need to get used to it thats all.

You can always revert to manual shifting. I hardly do (too lazy) buts it's a nice feature to have.

Lol not my first 6.0 just back from the ram trucks as of late. And my trucks computer clearly shows the 6 forward gears on the transmission. One is hidden on the namesake but I can see all six being commanded here on mine

From what i can tell my 4th shouldn't be used as it is on my truck . Maybe related to two dead batteries the truck has. Low voltage in system detected. I checked batteries and both are reading just over 10V. Surprised she even started at all. Once running gets to 13.4 but the moment alternator is off battery voltage drops immediately. Off to buy a couple more batteries i guess.

When it's below a certain temperature there is a "hidden" gear that's used to help warm up, but in reality it's only 5.
