Aftermarket tranny pan

I am looking to get a new pan for my truck. 1990 Auto 350, TH700r4 right?

Anyways, I was looking for one of the higher capacity ones, maybe aluminum. Anyone had good luck with something like this? Ebay has a bunch of 17 dollar chrome ones with an additional 2 quart capacity but I want something with a little more quality.
I was looking at http://www.bmracing.com/index.php?id...subcat=&pid=39
it looks like it is what I want. Would it be stronger than the stock pan. They don't show how much deeper the pan is. I don't want it to stick down so much that I will be hitting on rocks and stumps. I am kind of used to my offroading style and know what I can run over. I wouldn't want to learn the hard way with a new pan and my less than a year old tranny.
TIA

I was looking at summit and they had the Summit brand aluminim ones as well and they were cheaper than the B&M ones. Anyone have experience? Opinion?

I have always head that cheap pans (Chrome & Aluminum) are easily distorted when you tighten the bolts and prone to leak.

Re: Aftermarket tranny pan

if your looking for more cooling what about using an after market oil cooler maybe with a fan if your wheeling hard. dont go with chrome it retains heat and always leaks for myself anyway. never had good luck w/chrome products. Summit has good products they're name brand stuff is made by other manufacturers(hope it's spelled right) anyway.

Re: Aftermarket tranny pan

I have the factory cooler and have been told that it is sufficent for me. I do not tow so I don't have that to worry about that. I had to replace my tranny last summer, it lost 3rd and 4th gear. I am a little easier on the unit now but want to protect it, it was expensive. I want to get the summit Al one. Just wondering if you guys, and girls, have used it or know anything about it. Thanks
