I want to change the fluid & filter (which is incorporated into the pan) on my 2014 Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel.
The best deal that I found for the OEM pan & 8 quarts of OEM fluid is $641 (delivered) from Mopar Parts Giant. [email protected]!!!! This includes a hazmat fee.

Any thoughts or advice?

Thanks for that, I guess I didn't do enough research. The parts that I looked at was from Mopar Parts Giant. They charge a hazmat fee of $280. https://www.moparpartsgiant.com/online/shopping/cart?ref=header&previousURL=/parts-list/2014-jeep-grand_cherokee/automatic_transmission/oil_pan_filter_and_related_parts.html?Diagram=i2295751

How many quarts of fluid do I need?

I was only able to add about 4.5 quarts, so get 5 and you should be good

Also a couple notes about doing this if you haven't already gotten to it. The front bolts (towards the front of the vehicle) are not easy to get to. you will need a very shallow t40 torx, or a torx key. A standard torx socket on a rachet will not fit in the space between the pan and the cross member. The bolt at the left front corner of the pan is blocked by the transmission cooler lines, so be prepared to have to force the lines out of the way, while you remove that bolt. The drain plug is very fragile and brittle. The 10mm allen slot immediately broke when I went to turn it, forcing me to remove all of the pan bolts slowly, and let it drain around the edges. You will need a 8mm allen key or very short 8mm allen socket to get the fill plug in/out.

Thanks for the tips my friend, this is the first time I am servicing a 8Hp70
trans.
I think I will also make sure that the fill plug comes out easily before I drain it.

Absolutely. One other thing to keep in mind. The fill hole is very close to the exhaust, and the opening has something blocking most of the hole. You will definitely need a transfer pump that has a flexible and relatively small diameter hose.

I made one just like this guy did, and it works great. So much faster and cleaner than the crappy little pump ones that screw onto the bottle.
