    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.

    Always check your vehicle to verify your configuration and clearance.

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

    PML designed this deep transmission oil pan to replace the stock pan on many configurations of these vehicles with a Chrysler Dodge 45RFE, 545RFE, 65RFE, 66RFE, and 68RFE:

    • Ram 2500 and 3500, 2WD and 4WD, with 6.7 liter diesel engine, 2007 1/2 and newer
    • Ram 1500 with Hemi engine, 2002 to 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 to 2004
    • 2WD Durango with 4.7 V8 engine, 2000 to 2003
    • Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.7 V8 engine, 1999 to 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. 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.

    Pan ships with new mounting bolts and a magnetic drain plug. If the pan is drilled and tapped for a 1/8 NPT, a plug is included.

    Filter Information

    There are several stock pans and filters for the 68RFE, 66RFE, 65RFE, 545RFE, 45RFE Chrysler/Dodge transmissions. This pan works with any OEM or compatible filter.

    The filter bolts on to the valve body. No filter support or extension is needed. PML designs pans and covers to work with stock parts without the need for additional modifications or complications. 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. Installer must verify filter function and fitment with PML pan.

    Baffles on the inside of the pan keep the oil near the pickup tube, act as heat sinks to help with cooling, and reduce sloshing.

    Drain and Temperature Sensor Port on Driver Side

    This is the driver or left side of the transmission pan:

    The passenger front corner steps down to clear cooling tubes on some 2013 and newer diesel trucks.

    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.
