    I find most of my parts on eBay. New 4bt oil pans are around 175. I don't know about the other variations of Cummins engines but I saved $285 on rearend clutches for a limited slip differential that our local Dodge dealer wanted to sell me for $350, got them for $65 from a Dana dealer online.

    Yes, no jobber parts available for certain years on those pans. I got mine through cummins for my 04.5 last week, set me back about $500 plus tax for pan and gasket. Dodge dealer wanted about $500 for the pan plus another $50 for the gasket.

    The Dodge dealer also told me that the part number on their pan had been superseded and you needed all new bolts (32 @ $3.00 each!!!). Cummins laughed and said same part number as when the engine rolled off the line.... Surely Dodge wouldn't be getting a different spec pan from Cummins???

    On another note, you guys will be real good at changing your pans by the time you are done with that fleet!

    Yes, the price varies wildly with the particular year/serial no. of the engine. Prior to about 03-04 it seems that they are dirt cheap. After that you are looking at about $500 as a general rule.
