Transmission oil pan
 
Looking for a transmission oil pan with drain plug for 08 hemi. Anyone know where I can find one for decent price?

Well, there is always this one by mag-hytec, but the price is kinda high:

I dont know that there are actually any options for the WK, at least with stock exhaust... most options for the RFE (that would bolt up and function) are for a pickup where the exhaust is clear out of the way. Make sure IF you buy one that it is specified to fit on the grand cherokee!

Yeah, not looking to spend over $100. Just want a drain plug for convenience to make it easier to drain/refill on regular basis without having to drop the pan every single time and splatter the atf all over the place.

You could always drill a hole in the stock pan and install a plug.

Could if I had a welder, but I dont. I bought one for my GTO for like $40 so was hoping there was a similar option on the market for jeep.

All aftermarket plugs that I've seen seem useless to me due to the huge bolt that goes on the inside of the pan. Seems it would keep most of the oil from draining and I would still need to drop the pan to remove all the shavings that are settled on the bottom.

Good point I never thought of that with the aftermarket plugs.

realistically there is multiple quarts left in the trans, if your really worried about it you could just move up your service schedule that way even though you leave some behind you will keep cleaner fluid in as a whole.

Ultimately I much prefer to replace my sump filter when I perform a trans service which other than being able to make dropping the pan a slightly cleaner process is otherwise useless to me... That said I do it at work on a rack so its already a MUCH cleaner process for me than laying on my back.

Well thats kind of what I was trying to achieve... Make it as easy as an oil change so I can just drain the 5-6 qts from the oil pan and add some fresh stuff to the mix on more regular basis without having to drop the pan.

But the only pans I've been able to find sell for nearly $300...
