    Does anyone have any experience in aftermarket high capacity aluminum tranny pans? I have a transmission that was replaced a year ago and I am wanting to keep this one a long time. I was looking to replace the fluid and add in some Lucas stuff. I was looking at the TCI, Summit and Jegs pans. I want the one that adds 2 qts. It seems like I am going to have to deal with extensions for the filter for all of them. Any help or guidance would be apprecitaed.

    my 700R4 has a deep AL pan, it came on the trans from PATC (the Raptor 700 guys). If you wanted to add some fluid capacity and not deal with the pans co$t etc, you could always add an external filter kit... that'd give ya 1 more quart of fluid and better filtering too. Just a thought.

    I have been running the TCI pan with the extra 2 quarts on mine for a few years now, it didnt require anything but bolting it on. No idea how much cooler it got the tranny but its a 700 with 180,000 miles on it :blush:

    I have been running one on my 700 and it just happens to be for sale. Check out the trans section. I am going to be getting a new one for my new tranny. I will be changing my trans out when i go to the doubler so i wont need the 700 pan.

    ditto! i bought the summit one without a logo. it came with the factory extension tube for the filter so a no brainer to install. a bonus to the added cooling of a deeper pan is if you get into extreme angles with the truck there is less chance of the pickup sucking air cause it's under more fluid than the stock one :D

    Add capacity with a external cooler, if you have not already done so.

    If you're just looking for capacity... find it in a large auxilary cooler or a remote filter.

    A beefy pan is a must. Those cheap ones you buy are for cars and dent easy. I don't like the pan hanging down low because it can get hit easy.
