    By 1993, it was probably renamed to 42RH (which was the A500) or 46RH (which was the A518). I don't think the intermediate duty 44 transmission (as is 44RE) existed in 1993. My guess is 46RH.

    With the introduction of the Magnum V6 and V8 engines in 1992, the increased horsepower and torque of the Dakota V8 engine necessitated an automatic transmission upgrade. So I agree that a 1993 V8 model would be equipped with the A518 / 46RH transmission. It would have greater torque capability than the A500 mated to the V6 engine.

    You can make a positive identification by the shape of the transmission pan. Follow these links.
