I am going with the 1127. Found one for $50. Will this hose/fitting kit work? It’s sized 10an.

Yep, mounted it in the same spot as on page one, used the fittings and hose that came with it. Not bad to install, a little pain to get the adapter on the engine tight but unlike changing the filter every time you need to do this once.

As I prepare to install the remote filter, a question came up. My ram has the factory air suspension. Will that effect the location of the filter. From say off road 2 to entry/exit. Would that cause tension on the hose and fittings, or will it be stationary.

If you mount to the frame you are fine.

It’s in! I found the trans dapt 1127 kit on eBay for 53.16, customer return. I spent $12.50 on a fram ph8a oil filter, if you have a rural king nearby they’re 4.99, some hose clamps and loctite pst592. Throw in 24.24 for an ez valve I bought a couple weeks ago for the first oil change total is 89.90. 65.66 for the relocation kit. Had a hard time getting the filter off that I had put on when I changed the oil. Tried the bag trick the first time and went well, no oil spill. This time the bag dumped all over me and the driveway. Reminding me why I was doing this!! I cleaned all the threads with brake parts cleaner and let dry, then put the loctite on in a coat that filled the threads. Let that cure a bit while I took a nice bath in motor oil. Mobil 1 has a nice scent and flavor! Then I inserted the fittings, I tightened them with a 15/16 open end wrench, as snug as I could with hand only.Installed the adapter in the engine oil thread. Then pushed the hoses in place. Tightening the hose clamps snug. Then I made sure I had enough hose and actually there was more than enough. I didn’t cut the hose, as I didn’t want jagged cuts or or too long too short, while I was on my back under the truck. Now for the remote filter bracket. Same process with open end wrench to tighten fittings before I mounted to the truck. Made a template from card board and drilled into what I learned from this thread is the tow hook mount, for me perfect location. I used a 3/16 drill bit and drilled through the template than hand tightened the 3 included screws. Snugging them with a 3/8 box end wrench. Pushed the hose on the fittings In/out and out/in and tightened the hose clamp. Oiled the gasket on the fram and tightened it snug with my hand. The only thing I had to buy besides the kit was an oil filter. I added hose clamps and thread seal on my own. Now the moment of truth. I had my daughter start the truck, making a signal in case of quick shut off. Not necessary! Nothing shot out. Took her for a spin. 50-60 psi while driving. 51 psi cold idle, 38 warm. I didn’t get the oil very hot as I just drive around the block, but got her up to 75-80 mph, oil temp about 175. Btw, I live in the country, around the block is 3 miles. So I am happy with this and want to change my oil right now, lol. Thanks to OP and all who contributed, appreciate all the tips to help others through this!! Awesome job!! I’ll post pics below. Total time 2 hours.
