Question Flex Plate selection

Anyone have a thought on a good flex plate for a 2001 Dodge 5.9 Cummns with a 47RE? I don't see the need for a billet one I just need a better thicker one than stock. It is just my daily driver that pulls a little 16' trailer. Any thought would help me out a lot!!


Thanks,
Steve

hi
that looks like the one i used inmy 98 12 v .

check it for fit to see that the 4 center tabs locate it on the crank properly and lay it on the converter to see that it lays flat where the 6 converter bolts attach.

iinstalled a aftermarket billit converter and had to jb weld 6 an .060 washers on to converter to make it sit on the bolt pads.

used blue locktite , ben in app 7500 miles and fine .

got mine off e bay less than 100.00! make sure it has the sfi sticker like in the pic !
