The $35 pan i bought and installed on my 2014 ecodiesel zf8 trans. It has 4 magnets in the pan just like the the mopar pan, filter element looks similar to the mopar one also. I only have a 1,000 mi on it so far with the valvoline maxlife tranny flyid but everything is as good as factory so far. Ill update if anything changes. I agree factory parts is always the way to go if you can afford it. But they dont sell the parts to help you be able to service your vehicle they sell them to make the most money as possible.
I don't know much about the pans, I'm pretty sure there are after market pans. I had the transmission oil drained and had the pan filter washed out, fluid replaced, the trans fluid here is $50.00 CDN per liter, $500.00 for trans fluid alone.
It is not the ZF stock composite pan I am worried about but rather a cheap $30.00 plastic pan that could crack and fail. I will be going to the PPE Heavy Duty aluminum pan at some point. I just don't trust these China made cheap parts.
MSRP was $50,265 dollars for my Ram, so spending $263.99 one time for a quality aluminum pan that gives you more fluid capacity is really a cheap investment.
Heck, I ordered one... I will probably get the PPE one at some future time, when my finances are better. Heck, the Mopar oil and fuel filters are made in China. If it looks like crap, I'll toss it or use for target practice.
