I am confused I thought the 4.7L had the same trans and would use the same filter(s)? Since you have a 4.7L armyofone and you've done this can you help?

so chvyklr, since yours is 2wd did you only have one filter? Or did you still have 2 filters? According to the autozone database the 4.7L 2wd had one filter, and the hemi 2wd had both...agh stuff like this is so frustrating lol.

sorry, shoulda gave you more info. the Wix kit I ordered off Amazon came with both (spin on & flat) filters in one box. they listed 2 different P/Ns (4x4 & 2wd). I think the only difference is in the flat filter.

Ok thanks. I wonder if autozone just lists the other filter separate for some reason (assuming I do have both). Do you guys know the proper names of both filters so I can ask them tomorrow? I may call dodge as well just to see if there are differences...

I went to autozone to buy the trans filters and such and here's what came up in the computer:

2010 Dodge Truck RAM 1500 SLT 2WD
8 cylinder 287/Q4704 P 4.7L Flex Fuel

Duralast
Part # TF164
This one was a single filter (the flat one) and a gasket


or


2010 Dodge Truck RAM 1500 SLT 2WD
8 Cylinder 345/Q5654 T 5.7L SFI Hemi OHV

Duralast
Part # TF349
This one was both filters (flat one and oil filter looking one) and I think also a gasket

I used TF 349. The transmissions are identical, except for the bolt pattern on the bell housing and the size of the input shaft.

Thank you too! I'd like to do this this weekend so I'll probably go with the duralast one, as they have it in stock down the street. Do you think the wix one is anything better? Also, the kit came with a gasket....did you just not use it?

some kits do come with one, some dont. The trans does not REQUIRE it.i personally prefer gaskets...but the 09's dont use them at all. 10's were hit and miss, 11's use one.
