This extra deep PML oil pan for Dodge RFE transmissions is designed to replace the stock pan on these vehicles:
Always check your vehicle to verify configuration and clearance!
2013 and newer diesel trucks: Cooling tubes run under the stock transmission pan and this pan will not fit. See PML's Deep RFE pan, part number 10304.
Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 HD Chassis Cab, 2007 to 2012: See the PML Aisin AS68RC transmission pan.
Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 Diesel Trucks, 2013 and newer with the Aisin AS69RC: See the 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 below for a customer who provided information on his skid plate modifications. 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, please see PML RFE pan with step, part number 11078 or PML RFE deep pan with step, part number 11079. 2006 and newer vehicle with the Hemi engine generally need a pan with a step.
For some vehicles that have the exhaust or frame under the stock pan, you may think there is enough clearance between the exhaust and the transmission housing for this PML pan. If you measure, it will seem very close. There is not enough space. It's been tried. After removing fins and part of the PML pan bottom, the pan will go on but the exhaust then sits right on the transmission pan, which is very bad.
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.
Left (driver) side of pan and drain hole. 11039, 11079 and 11078 parallel to ground when installed.
Rear of pans. 11078 and 11079 step down to clear the Hemi engine exhaust routing.
There are two different stock pans and two different filters for this Chrysler/Dodge transmission.
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:
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.
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.
Information is for reference only. Installer is responsible for installation, function and fitment.
The pan features internal baffles to direct oil to the filter inlet and provide additional surface area for cooling.

Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit
This pan has a location on the driver's side that can be machined for a temperature sending unit. The location is a circular boss and can accommodate between 1/8 NPT and 1/2 NPT. PML can drill and tap the hole to order for a $45 machining charge.

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.
1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Victor installed this transmission pan on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The pan fit great without any clearance issues. Our thanks to Victor for providing the pictures.
