This is by far the best Mod YET that I've done on my 97 rivi in the 7 years that I've owned it! The difference you feel and the joy you bring to your aging(259k) in my case transmission that it has been missing is entire miserable life. The stock Trans pan is a joke and it cooks that dex lll fluid like an steak on a dodge viper hood in the Mojave desert! When I switched to Dex VI and the ZZP aluminum Trans pan I noticed consistent smooth shifts that I never experienced with the factory rust pan @ normal and "spirited" operating temps. I finally made a trip over the road for 150miles and when I say smooth trans and im doing a modest 80-95 mph the whole way and the trans just felt and shifted smoothly the whole way even when passing and pulling in 3rd. Moral of the story? Get you ZZP trans pan and extend the life of your stock transmission!

Keep modding!

I see that it's "ribbed for her pleasure," but what else is different?  Is it deeper-for-her-pleasure too?

HAHA good one!

Although it appears to be deeper, I believe the depth is the same because it does hold the same amount of fluid. I will say however the fluid still looks nice and bright red after running the old transmission hard for a few light 2 light pulls! Does not smell burnt like my old pan and Dex III used to treat me. afro

I see now - those are cooling fins. At first glance I thought they were indented into the pan, but they stick out, and quite a bit!

They sure do! Its like a woman with her hair in the wind! If I were to guess they are at least 2in in length! I'll take a measurement later.

It's going on my wish list, but I'm concerned about it scraping.

Ok. I was a little excited and exaggerated on the length. Haha its actually 1/2" and a little deep towads the middle 3/4" max. As for converns on it scraping? You'll hit ypur oil pan before you touch that thing and hopefully you were aware of what was being hit that high off the ground! As you can see from the pics I have no splash engine cover and plenty of scrapes on my subframe. Only thing I worry about is people not being able to see this awesome part!

Thanks for the pics, that looks safe enough.

Not a problem! Just here to help out. My goal was to make my riv as efficient as possible! It is my daily.

This will be on top of our mod list when we start working on uncle's new Riv project. Close to 230k miles on the clock and it needs some TLC. Got to finish installing the suspension and brake kit from 4Wheelonline onto the Wrangler before we can clear the garage and take her in.

Looks interesting.

IIRC the benefit of aluminum pans (oil and trans) was the cooling and the problem was they'd shatter instead of dent when you scrape something.

I'd hate to have my transmission pan shatter. I think I'd rather have my finned pan in steel, for all the good the weight savings of an aluminum pan does on a 4000 lb car.
