Question for you hill/rock climbers

Do any of you experience oil pressure drops when climbing or going down very steep hills? How do you compensate for this? Do you have a baffle in your oil pan to hold the oil near the pump? Is this something homemade or aftermarket?

The stock Jeep engies have baffles in their pans. Many aftermarket oil pans are available for 350 GM engines, check Milodon, Moroso, etc. for their recomendations.

I use a engine oil accumulator. It stores engine oil under pressure intill it's needed at start up or if I should happen to lose oil pressure for a couple seconds on the trail.
