Good looking truck, I recently helped a guy on the side of the road with a leaking high pressure line on a similar cummins. Simple fix and the part was cheap!!

Any transmission can hang another with enough aftermarket parts.

1st, its not my truck, but I did own one almost like it. 2nd, Absolutely I believe it. The 48RE is a good trans. Its the people that throw a ton of power at them that they weren't designed for that have problems. All brands will fail when they are pushed to their limits and not serviced like they should. The 48RE can be built to hold 800-1000hp and just as much ft/lbs of torque pretty easily. I'd take my chances on a trans behind a 5.9Cummins than all the EPA crap thats on these newer trucks. When it goes bad it usually ends in catostophic failure, which means new motor time.
