    This extra deep PML oil pan for Dodge RFE transmissions is designed to replace the stock pan on many configuratins of these vehicles:

    • Ram 2500 and Ram 3500, 2WD and 4WD, with 6.7 liter diesel engine, 2007½ to 2012
    • Ram 1500 with Hemi engine, 2002 to 2005

    • Jeep Liberty CRD, 2005 and 2006 (check skid plate and see installations below)
    • Jeep Wrangler 2010 and 2011 2.8 Diesel (check skid plate)

    Ram Trucks with Aisin Transmission: for 2007 to 2012, see the PML Aisin AS68RC transmission pan and for 2013 and newer, see PML Aisin AS69RC transmission pan

    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, such as 2006 and new Hemis, see a PML RFE pan with a step.

    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.

    2005 Jeep Liberty CRD With Skid Plates

    Many customers have installed this extra deep pan or the regular deep pan on the Liberty CRD. Usually the skid plate needs lowering or modification. Our thanks to Stan Wright who documented his installation of a PML RFE deep pan, part number 10304, on his CRD. See liberty.eurekaboy.com/deeppan.htm to read about this install.

    2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 Aftermarket Exhaust

    Joe has aftermarket Hurricane Headers witha custom collector and Y–join. The cross member and long arm kit are from Clayton's Offroad. When Joe installed the PML pan, he had to beat in the exhaust a bit and heat wrapped it. The heat wrap is just touching the pan, which is fine with Joe as it should not cause any trouble.

    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.

    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.

    Baffles

    PML 68rfe transmission pan, baffles in casting

    Image shows the inside of this transmission pan.

    The pan features internal baffles. The baffles direct oil to the filter pick up, reduce sloshing, and provide additional surface area for cooling.

    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.
