The transmission for Dodge and Jeep applications includes a more robust stepped pressure plate on the A & D clutch pack assembly to reduce premature failure
Jasper, Ind.—Jasper Engines & Transmissions has expanded the availability of its remanufactured ZF 8HP70 transmission to include the following late-model Dodge and Jeep applications:
- 2014-2017 Durango, Grand Cherokee 5.7L (4WD)
- 2014-2017 Durango, Grand Cherokee 5.7L (RWD)
The Jasper remanufactured ZF 8HP70 includes the installation of a more robust, Jasper-designed stepped pressure plate on the A & D clutch pack assembly.
“This stepped pressure plate reduces flex, allowing the equal distribution of pressure over the full lined plate,” said Jasper Drivetrain Product Development Engineer Matt Lindauer. “The stronger design reduces premature failure, which results from disproportionate pressure along the outer edge of the lined plate. This unit is dynamometer tested and shipped prefilled with ZF specified fluid.”
