2010 Dodge Ram 4500
John in Peyton, Colorado installed this PML AS68RC transmission pan on his 2010 Ram 4500 6.7. He reported that "installation was easy with no fitment issues". He used a 1/4 inch drive 5mm hex bit since clearance is tight when bolting up the pan. He used the approved ASCR fluid (not ATF+4) and needed just over three gallons for the fill.
Here are the part numbers for the gasket, filter and fluid John used:
- Mopar Pan Gasket: 68020049AA
- Mopar Filter: 68019688AA
- Mopar Fluid, ASCR - Gallon: 05189977AA / Quart: 05189966AA
Our thanks to John for sharing his installation information and pictures below.

2009 Dodge Ram 4500
Certified Transmissions did one of the first installations of this pan. These pictures show the PML Aisin pan on a 2009 Ram 4500 Cab & Chassis. Our thanks to Certified for providing these pictures and feedback.
2009 Dodge Ram 5500
John installed this PML Aisin pan on his 2009 Ram 5500 Cummins. He reported that the installation was straight forward and took him no longer than a couple of hours. The only special tool that he recommends is an extra long 5mm Allen Socket for the bolts in the front of the pan where the transmission cooler lines run. He added just under 13 quarts of Amalie Super Universal Transmission fluid, meets or exceeds the JWS 3009 spec required by Chrysler or Aisin. With the stock pan, he would add just a tad over 9 quarts. Our thanks to John for his feedback on his installation.

Drain for PML AS68RC Transmission Pan
PML placed the drain hole on the driver's side, near the rear of the vehicle, as shown here.
A magnetic drain plug is included with the pan and all the mounting bolts. The side location is safer than the bottom since there is less chance for damage than on the bottom. There is still easy access for maintenance.
Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit
Optionally, this pan can be machined for a temperature sending unit.
If you would like PML to drill and tap hole, the machining charge is per hole. A plug for the hole is included.
The standard size is 1/8 NPT. Call or email if you need a different size.
This pan has three locations that can be machined for a temperature sending unit:
- Driver/left side near the front
- Passenger/right side near the rear
These locations are circular bosses that are thicker areas on the casting and are designed to be drilled and tapped.
