I'll bet Chris thinks these are funnier than the price of transmissions.

Not including torque converter.

Truck is a 2004 Dodge 3500 Cummins with a 48RE tranny and has 280K. Engine replaced in 2017.

Also considering getting a newer model. Likely a 2500 4WD this time.
If the 48RE is the same as the 47RE, the Low/reverse and second Bands can be adjusted. If you are towing trailers this needs to be done more regular.
I would get a reputable transmission shop to do this unless you feel you can do it yourself....and you can.

Do you have a tuner on your truck? Not sure if this actual transmission requires it, but reading thru the selling points on website, mentions it several times.

The one band is easy to adjust ( well, at least you do not have to drop the transmission pan, but being able to crawl under and be a contortionist helps) and might help with transmission shutter. Guess it can be considered a maintenance issue, that should be done periodically.

I would drop the pan and do them both. And change the filter and oil at the same time.
And yes, this should be done every 60K if you are pulling a load.
These trannys will give good service if maintained but especially in diesels, they are treated as if they were a standard box, and there is waay to much torque pushed through them. You never hear of a 48RE failing on a gas engine and they are ignored on them too.
Chris is gentle with it and never burns rubber
