    This PML extra capacity heavy duty transmission oil pan fits the Dodge RFE series of transmissions, such as the 68RFE, 545RFE, and 45RFE. It is designed specifically for trucks and SUVs with exhaust or cross member under the stock pan.

    Benefits:

    • Extra capacity
    • Follows shape of stock pan for exhaust and frame clearance
    • Fins and aluminum construction to dissipate heat from transmission fluid
    • Drain plug for easier maintenance
    • Thick walls to add strength to the transmission housing
    • Thick gasket flange, machined flat, for a leak-free seal
    • Clearance for cross members and exhausts routed across the rear of the pan

    PML designed this 2 quart over stock transmission oil pan with a step at the rear to clear the exhaust routed under the stock pan on some trucks and SUVs, including those with Hemi engines. This pan can replace the stock pan on many configurations of these vehicles with a Chrysler Dodge 45RFE, 545RFE, 65RFE, 66RFE, and 68RFE:

    • Dakota with 4.7 V8 engine, 2000 to 2011
    • Durango with 4.7 V8 engine, 2000 to 2012

    • Ram 1500, 2002 to 2016 (2012 to 2014 4.7l engine trucks check clearance)
    • Ram 2500 and 3500, Hemi engine, 2006 to 2016
    • Ram 2500 and 3500, with 6.7 liter diesel engine, 2007 1/2 to 2012

    • Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.7 or 5.7 V8 engine, 1999 to 2004
    • Jeep Liberty, 2002 to 2004, 3.7 (check clearance, see Jeep Transmission Pan Guidelines web page)
    • Jeep Liberty CRD, 2005 and 2006 (check skid plate)
    • 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.

    2013 and newer diesel engine trucks: cooler lines are routed under the stock pan on these trucks. This pan will not clear them.

    Jeep Owners: 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 probably not enough space. PML part number 11161 has not been tried and is slightly different from other PML 45RFE to 68RFE pans. See our Jeep Transmission Pan Guidelines web page.

    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.

    We have had installations on Ram 1500 and 2500 trucks and Dakotas. Our thanks to those who have emailed us pictures of their installations.

    Brian installed this PML Dodge RFE pan with the step on his 2011 Ram 2500. He first thought he might have space for a pan without a step but found that the driver side had less clearance.

    Comparison of PML RFE Transmission Oil Pans

    PML makes four pans for the 68RFE, 45RFE, 5-45RFE, 65RFE, 66RFE, 68RFE transmissions. All fit the transmission and the different designs suit a variety of vehicles and applications. Click on an image to view larger in a new tab or window.

    Filter Information

    There are two different stock pans and two different 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.

    For PML part numbers 10304 and 11039, you can use either filter. For PML part numbers 11078 and 11079, you must use the "4WD" filter.

    PML does not include a filter with the pan. 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.

    Inside of Pan Has Baffles

    Cast-in baffles control sloshing, act as a heat sink and direct the fluid to the filter pick-up.

    The filter attaches to the valve body of the transmission so no filter supports or extensions are needed.

    Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining

    Optionally, this pan can be machined for a temperature sending unit. There is boss on the driver side of the pan for this.

    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.
