Hello,
A couple original freeze plugs on my 01 SLT 4.7L have gone bad and I want to replace them with new brass freeze plugs.


  • Who makes good ones?
  • Where/who is a good vendor? (Dealer ok?)
  • Thinking about just buying a complete set to be ready for future -- is this wise?
I have a "retired" mechanic who has me buy the parts and then he fixes/installs. He has been great thus far (couple years now). The plan is to replace everything within reach of those 2 bad freeze plugs, if any additional are reachable. One bad plug on passenger mid-side and other somewhere near front of engine.

By the way, I live near Phoenix AZ, in case anyone knows of good local suppliers.

Thanks in advance!
jimmy

DNJ FPS1100 Brass Freeze Plug Set for 1999-2013 / Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mitsubishi, Ram / 4.7L / V8 / 16V / SOHC / 285cid, 287cidNote Brass w/HI-OUTPUT Freeze Plugs/Not compatible 4.7L

Looking at the Amazon item description it's confusing! Outlined in in green above it shows 4.7L then at the end it shows "Not Compatible 4.7L"! Is it compatible or not. You might want to contact the Seller.

Thank you, Tom!
I did ask a question about the Amazon parts and people said that set will fit.
However, I think I would prefer to go with Rock Auto.
I will update the list above...
