when i bought my Mopar transmission filters through the dealership
i have rear wheel drive 2x4

they gave me the correct spin on filter, but they gave me the Deep flat filter, it was the wrong one
The dealership had their Parts driver bring out the correct one & took the deep one back

Yes, the 4x4 uses what would be called a deep pan.

Compare the new filter with your old one to make sure you have the correct one. Look at the location of the inlet pipe (metal pipe on bottom of the filter; 4x4 is in a different location than 4x2). If you install the wrong filter, this inlet pipe will hit the pan and you won't be able to bolt the pan back on properly.

By the way, I would highly recommend using a Mopar spin-on filter. Some aftermarket filters have defective anti-drainback diaphragms, which can give you problems.
