PPE introduces a cutting-edge flat-bottom transmission pan designed specifically for the Ram 68RFE transmission, meticulously crafted from high-quality cast aluminum. Engineered with both internal heat sinks and external cooling fins, this pan is geared towards temperature regulation, promoting lower transmission fluid temperatures. The increased fluid capacity, combined with the aluminum construction, facilitates improved lubrication, ultimately enhancing the longevity of the transmission. Equipped with a Neodymium-enhanced, 1-inch stainless steel drain plug, the pan efficiently removes harmful ferrous particles from the transmission fluid. The kit includes two NPT plugs and access ports for temperature probes.
To maximize protection, consider upgrading to the PPE 228052150 Transmission Filter, boasting a 57% larger filtration media. Rigorously tested on a 2013 2500 Cummins-powered Ram towing a 13,000 lb travel trailer, this pan demonstrated remarkable performance. Even under challenging conditions like city traffic, steep hill climbs, and wide-open highway runs, transmission temperatures remained below 200 degrees. Notably, the pan's efficiency in dissipating heat surpassed that of the factory-installed stamped steel pan, showcasing consistent temperature differentials, particularly when unloaded.
