#4726650 - 04/14/18 11:16 AM Aftermarket Deep Pan 4L60E

I want a deep pan with a drain plug, and this is the cheapest one. I think the "stock" deep pan is 3" but this one is 3 5/8" deep. Do I use the regular "deep" tranny filter, or do I need to do something else?

Stock replacement deep pan for reference, doesn't have drain plug unfortunately: https://www.amazon.com/ATP-Automotive-Graywerks-103164-Transmission/dp/B004QBZORI/

Something else ... for around what those can cost I bought a B&M plug (toss nylon seal and use copper washer), remote filter w/ spare ports, and a small cooler ...
Do pan dump and XG16 in 20 minutes ... clean and easy

From what I learned from researching for a 6L-90, the pan gives you more capacity, the cooling fins add a bit of cooling but in most cases I examined you leave the filter where it it is. The extra capacity does not get circulated through unless the get a lowering kit? Donít recall seeing one. Also, obviously you want the plug to do partial dump and fills and make things less messy when you change the filter.

I would assume itís pretty thin and that could lead to leaks Ö why not just get a drain plug kit Ö as I noted once you put a copper washer on them they are leak free and cheaper yet Ö

Nothing wrong with that first pan. And it is even cheaper than Dorman (stock size) pan smile

It seems odd that the product description doesn't address the filter. A lot of aftermarket deep pans come with a filter extension.

The Dorman is shaped exactly like the stock deep pan on 1999-up 4L60E trucks. It might not hold an extra 3 quarts, but the stock "deep" filter would fit. Some Amazon reviews complain about the drain plug gasket and a batch of mis-stamped pan rails, though.

I agree. Bought my drain plug kit for around $10. Installed in stock pan.

Find a 99+ truck with that transmission. A lot of them had the deep pan with a drain plug. I upgraded the pan on my 98 K1500 back in the day with a stock deep pan with drain plug that I bought from the dealership. I think I read that they don't sell them anymore though.

I'm using a Derale deep pan with cooling fins on mine, adds ~2 quarts. Comes with a magnetic drain plug as well, which makes it easier to change. Mine had the GM "deep pan" from the factory - bare in mind the filter will not fit, it does not clear the fins - you will need the thinner metal filter.
