I had forgotten you had one, so I found a new OEM dipstick and tube for
$20 from a Mopar parts site.
Since the Dipstick goes into the pan, I should be able to take a tube or
bolt of the same size and from the inside of the pan, gently pound it up
Shouldn't be any tricks on dropping the pan, and I have a set of gaskets.
Should I replace / check anything since the pan is dropped?
