    PML designed this pan for Chrysler Dodge 4, 5 and 6 speed transmissions: 68RFE, 66RFE, 65RFE, 545RFE, and 45RFE.

    Benefits

    • Drain and magnetic drain plug included
    • Extra Capacity
    • Heavy duty sand cast aluminum construction
    • Finned on the bottom for heat dissipation
    • Machined flat, large sealing surface for a leak free seal
    • Clears cooling lines on 2013 and newer Ram diesel trucks

    Check your exhaust routing. Many Hemi engine trucks and SUVs have the exhaust under the stock pan and will need PML 2 quart over or stock capacity pan.

    Once installed the bottom of this pan is parallel to the ground.

    This deep PML oil pan for Chrysler Dodge 45RFE, 545RFe, 65RFE, 66RFE, and 68RFE transmissions is designed to replace the stock pan on many configurations of these vehicles:

    • Ram 2500 & 3500, 2WD and 4WD, with 6.7 liter diesel engine with an RFE transmission, 2007½ and newer
    • Ram 1500 with Hemi engine, 2002 - 2005
    • Ram 1500 with 4.7 V8 engine, 2002 to 2011, check clearance on 2012 to 2014
    • 2WD Dakota with 4.7 V8 engine, 2000 - 2004
    • 2WD Durango with 4.7 V8 engine, 2000 - 2003
    • Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.7 V8 engine, 1999 - 2004
    • Jeep Liberty CRD, 2005 and 2006 (check skid plate and see installations below)
    • Jeep Wrangler 2010 and 2011 2.8 Diesel (check skid plate)

    Always check your vehicle to verify configuration and clearance.. This pan will not work on 8 or 9 speed or Aisin transmissions.

    Ram Trucks with Aisin Transmission: see PML Aisin AS68RC and AS69RC transmission pans.

    Skid Plates: If you have a skid plate, you may need to move it downwards away from the transmission pan. Please see Installations for an example from a customer. Some Jeeps and a few Dodge vehicles have skid plates that limit clearance.

    Trucks and SUVs with exhaust or frame members below the stock pan: for example, many Hemi engine vehicles have the exhaust under the stock pan and will need PML 2 quart over or stock capacity pan.

    Some vehicles, like 2005 to 2013 Grand Cherokees, have the exhaust or frame near or under the stock pan. There may seem to be clearance for a PML pan, but there is not enough space. It has been tried. Removing fins and part of the pan did not help.

    Filter Information

    There are two different stock pans and two different stock filters for this Chrysler/Dodge transmission.

    Dodge RFE transmission valve body and filter   Dodge RFE stock pan, 2WD
    These are sometimes called the "4WD" filter and pan although they are used on 2WD and 4WD vehicles. The filter has a long pick up long tube in the middle.

    Dodge RFE transmission valve body and filter   Dodge RFE transmission valve body and filter
    These are sometimes called the "2WD" filter and pan. Seen more commonly on 2006 and older trucks. The pick up tube is short and located close to the end of the filter.

    This pan works with either filter style. Thanks to Eric who provided part numbers for filters that will work with all PML Dodge RFE pans:

    • OEM: 5013470AB
    • Fleetguard: TF15072
    • FRAM: FT1223
    • WIX: 58843 (kit)

    The filter bolts on to the valve body. No filter support or extension is needed. The fluid will be at the same level with a stock pan as with the PML pan. The filter will pick up from the same place. PML designs pans and covers to work with stock parts without the need for additional modifications or complications.

    It is the responsiblility of the installer to verify filter and fitment.

    Gasket Information

    For a gasket, PML recommends an inexpensive cork or cork composite type gasket or the silicon gasket maker. Some Dodge vehicles use the Mopar silicon gasket maker, which comes in a tube, with the stock pan. This works fine with a PML pan.

    An example of a cork gasket is Transmaxx 72300, shown below.
