You'll need two filters when you go to change the trans fluid. Wix makes a kit with a gasket. I've read on this forum that you should stick with OEM trans filters. I went with OEM the 1st time but have a Wix kit for the next. Maybe someone who has experience with the Wix will chime in here.

Food for thought:

Bought my 2006 in October 2018, 1 month later wife driving it and said it was doing se same thing. Had not changed anything with tires/etc. All stock Commander.

1/2 month later, it locked up. Motor gone. Transmission over heat was only indicator of issues. Turns out, slight leaking of water pump, air in system meant engine temp never registered even though it was baking.

Double check cooling system just to be sure. Would hate for someone to have to go through what I did. Just a thought....

the word is that aftermarket return line spin on filters do not have check valves and allow fluid to drain causing a delayed shift after startup. you can easily monitor trans temp using torque app on your phone and a cheap bluetooth obdii adapter...
I have a set of mopar filters waiting to be installed soon. i did the wix filters 30k ago and have noticed some delayed shifts and downshift clunks lately.
