I am looking at one (PML, Yourcovers.com) http://www.yourcovers.com/transpan_11049.php
It holds 4 quarts more fluid then the stock pan.
Last week I was coming home from The Bonneville Salt flats thru Nevada, outside temps were 95 degrees. Driving at 65 mph up a long hill my transmission temp. got up to 224 degrees.
I figure the extra large cast aluminum pan would be the easiest fix to bring down the temp.
If it doesn't bring it down enough, I will put in another transmission cooler with a fan.
I almost got an Aluminum transmission pan for the sake of cooling but ended up getting a steel one. Friend of mine says if you do any 4x4ing, it'll crack versus bend.. I've the Tubulator DeRale Transmission Pan Cover. Has tubes where the air flow is supposed to cool it more.
