The NV4500 transmission has been the proverbial work horse in Dodge Ram trucks since the early nineties. Its revolutionary design and torque handling made it a popular choice for those looking to do off road conversions. For years we have researched the NV4500's innovative design and studied its failures in order to bring you a product that exceeds its original expectations.

We started from the ground up and addressed the individual flaws that have hindered the performance of this transmission. We took special care utilizing the latest technology and components to address some of the more serious issues like synchronizer wear, fifth gear destruction and fluid retention to name a few. We are now offering the NV4500 transmission with all the included upgrades at a new industry low sale price.

NV4500 Transmission history

In 1992, New Venture Gear in Syracuse New York built the first NVG4500 transmission for the Chrysler corporation to use in their heavy duty truck applications. The Dodge NVG500 was a much needed improvement from its predecessor the G360. Soon after its creation the letter G was dropped from the name to give us the more commonly known NV4500 transmission.

How we built it better

Here at Smart Parts Automotive we have taken what was good and made it even better. We redesigned the build process from the ground up. We started by taking a closer look at the performance needs of the people who drive the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series trucks. By researching the wide variety of driving conditions Ram owners encounter, we were able to tailor an NV4500 transmission that suits our customers specific needs.

Next, we focused on finding NV4500 rebuild parts that hold up to the power and torque of the 5.9L Cummins and the V10 Magnum with confidence. By researching failure points, design flaws and evaluating wear on internal components, we have been able to produce a rebuilt NV4500 transmission worthy of the Smart Parts name.
