not after you drive a duramax/Allison combo. I was blown away when I got one
I'm not bashing the Allison, but it really does bother me that because it has the Allison name on it people think it is some amazing transmission. As far as I'm concerned none of the automatics behind any of the diesels out there are bullet-proof or particularly stout. If you want to talk about a stout transmission check out ATS or Suncoast. From the factory the Ford TorqShift has the highest ratings with regard to the power input it can withstand.
