Has anyone installed one of these? I'm looking to buy one. Looks easy to do. What are the benefits? I heard the oil pan needs to be dropped to change the trans oil filter. Does this need to be performed with every oil changed? I heard the pan and trans oil filter are one unit. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

should probably clarify what you mean here. There is engine oil pans and transmission oil pans, I'm assuming you mean transmission oil pan. If so benefits are usually a little added capacity, and a better heat dissipation

The guy I was talking with thought I was talking about transmission pans when I was trying to get info on oil pans. I'm good now, thanks for the response.

The transmission filter is integrated with the transmission pan, completely unrelated to engine oil or pan. The extra capacity pan is just for peace of mind for those under extreme load, aka frequent tt tow'ers. Alternatively just change the oil before the 10k. Simple enough

AFE makes a larger engine oil pan it holds about 2 extra quarts which helps cool the oil system.

PPE makes a transmission pan which has replaceable a filter and is made out of aluminum instead of plastic. Which well be less expensive to service and more durable.

I was surprised that AFE took the time to research, develop, and manufacture the oil pan. You wouldn't think there would be a market for an engine pan, but somehow AFE came to the conclusion that it would be a good product to offer. I literally don't know anyone who has purchased the pan. There's a theoretical cooling benefit just from the extra 2 quarts and aluminum finned deep pan, but it would be neat to see some actual data. Anyway, if my factory oil pan was leaking, then I would probably replace the pan with the AFE at that point. I kind of hope my pan leaks, lol.
