ive never changed one on a ram before, but i have on a chevy. Its a reall simple process.

*)Check to see if the pan has a drain bolt. If it does, youre in luck. Drain the fluid out. If it doesnt, youll have to unbolt the pan with the fluid still in, so there will be a mess. You can also loosen all the bolts and then carefully let the fluid drain from one side, to avoid an even bigger mess. Check to see if there are any metal shavings inside the pan.

*)Carefully remove the transmission filter, it might be a little difficult to get out. Be careful, cus there is still fluid in the filter and it might splash.

*)put new filter in place.

*)Apply gasket or gasket maker/silicone (not sure which one it uses) on the edge of the transmission pan.

*) bolt the transmission pan in. Try to do a star pattern when tightening them. So it doesnt leak in the future.

*)refill transmission fluid and keep an eye out for any leaks.

And i wouldnt add any type of additive. Ive never been a fan of them.
