Ok just bought my truck, everything is perfect except the tranny pan. It is really rusted I knew it was when I bought it. I hear they rust really easlly. So I am looking for a new pan. My question is whats is the difference between aftermarket pans and stock? Also where and which pans are recommended?

oh i like that one. Does it help the transmission to have a higher capacity pan than stock? I hear about people getting them but hear heard a real reason.

Yes. They hold about three more quarts than stock and have a magnetic drainplug.
Tactransman hooked me up with one over a year ago through another site. Great pan.

The Summit/Derale pan actually has cooling tubes in the bottom of the pan.

what about the clearance between the skid plate? The stock pan is very close. Unless you made some kind of spacer.

i don't have a skid plate for mine, if i had one ide take it off and sell it i don't do any off road stuff. the most off road i get is snow on the road. if i needed it i would drop it an inch under the bottom of the pan.

It looks nice,but I like steal(tin) better because it will take more abuse . If the alumnium pan got bumped buy a rock or a rock flew out from a tire. You could loose your fluid real fast. Causeing the transmission to ruin.

It takes three extra quarts to fill now. Tactransman directed me to it at http://www.transmissionpartsusa.com/Default.asp but, I don't see a listing for it on the site anymore. :huh:

Johnnyreb, no need to apologize. It's all good. :tup:

Since you put this pan on your transmission. Did and do you have a transmission temperature on your truck. And if so--how much cooler is the transmission is running?

My '96 has a 4/6 drop , Will this pan work or is to deep?

If not do you know of a aftermarket that's not so deep? :help:
Double quote.

That's my pan, only, now it comes black and it's $40.00 more.
I just looked under my truck and the pan sits about 1 1/2" below the frame and about 1 1/2" above the skidplate on a 4X4.
