You don't need an aftermarket deep pan.I put an ATS aluminum deep pan on mine just for looks.

Re: aftermarket trans pan?

No, they won't lower temps. It may take a while longer to get hot, but once it does get hot it will take longer to cool off, too, so what have you gained? Also, have you ever noticed how hot it is under the truck? How are you going to cool anything in all that heat?

If you want the trans to be cooler put a better cooler on the truck. A pan isn't the way to cool the trans.

Makes your wallet lighter from the extra fluid and the cost of the pan. Pretty much all you can count on is the "Rice Factor".

Re: aftermarket trans pan?

Do a nice pan you wont regret it.

The factory trans pan gets 2 thumbs down from me!

Ford made a deeper 1 for the 4x4 trucks vs 2wd (why ), some e40d and 4r100 have no drain plug (stupid ), the Ford pans are easily damaged, Pans with drain plugs are prone to failure at the pan/plug threads with little overtighening. Do not net anyone do your fluid/fliter change with a factory pan.

I have a Mag-tec pan and it is a nice pan as are many aftermarket pans are. the pan holds more fluid and once it is heated it is seems run the same temp as the factory pan.

I bought the aftermarket pan because i have spilled enough fluid in my driveway and on myself with my Gen 1 Ford Lightning (E4od) NON plug equipped pan to drive me crazy 2002 f250 plug spun off the treads and the plug wouldnt come out so more atf went onto the driveway I guess the last person that serviced the transmission put the plug in with a impact driver.

My trucks lift hight/tires are the same as your truck if you wanna see what you spent your hard earned $$$$ on just look.

If your at stock ride hight save $$$$ buy a sticker only way anyone will see your trans pan is if you roll your truck

Re: aftermarket trans pan?

So how do you resolve the fact that an ex-Ford trans engineer did all the measurements and found that the deep dish pan didn't do anything for the cooling? So far, all it has is the rice factor.
