    Looking for morr info on a truck biuld witj a g56

    Hi guys I'm new. Not to the Cummins world but to this forum.

    I'm a manual transmission guy and I just got my first dodge with a G56. All my other trucks were autos because I could never find a manual.

    I had a 09 that was built and a 2012 that wasn't bad but when I got the chance to buy a new 18 with a G56 I jumped at it.

    Just wanted some ideas for builds and I pull a lot and live in a state with no smog rules.

    Start with the clutch as that is a big weakness from the factory.

    Without you, we cease to exist. Without your support, we stop growing. Without your involvement, we remain at a standstill.
    Thank you for your faithfulness to our organization and your creative ideas and support.

    Clutch for sure, tunes if you wanted, air bags, thuren springs, there are definitely a few things you can do for sure depending on how heavy you tow.

    Dual disc for sure. Valair and South Bend are both reputable companies. I would suggest buying the quiet version of either though.

    I made a cursory look into clutches and was overwhelmed with the number that seemed to be avalible for the G56. I may not have had the filters set right and it was showing me everything Valair made, not sure now that I think about it, but how do you know which is the quiet version and how noisy is the non quiet version? Are there any benefits to one or the other? I also saw three disk clutches, if two is good wouldn't three be better or at some point does it become overkill for someone who isn't looking to get into the 1000 HP build but wants to remain close to stock output +60 or so...?

    The quiet version has considerably less noise, it's the floater plate that rattles around and makes a heck of a racket.

    This is what I have, holds tight and won't let go: https://www.dudesdieselperformance.c...egory=34719085

    Valiar has an organic version also: https://www.dudesdieselperformance.c...egory=34719085

    Get a hold of Clayton of @DudesDieselPerformance, he's vendor here and will treat you right.
