If it's auto, you'll want a 727 for pulling.

Find a different trans shop! 727 and 904 are NOT that much different. It's not like you're trying to stuff a 6 spd Allison trans in there or something.

+1 to finding a new shop, any tranny shop that says a 727 won't fit in a Dodge truck needs to be given a wiiiiiiiide berth.
