For PML part numbers 10304 and 11039, you can use either filter.
For PML part numbers 11078 and 11079, you must use the 4WD filter as the step in the pan will not accommodate a 2WD filter.
Part numbers for 4WD filters that will work:
WIX: 58843 (kit)
The filter referred to as the 2WD filtter, has a short inlet pipe toward the rear of the filter. The other filter is called a 4WD filter and the inlet tube is longer and toward the center of the filter. We have been told that around 2007 Dodge began using 4WD filters on 2WD vehicles.
