Dick Moroso oil pan?

Is anyone running the Dick Moroso oil pan? It holds 1.25 additional quarts of oil and has a trap at the bottom to make sure there is always oil to pull from when the vehicle is at angles. Sometimes I get hung up at pretty sever angles and I can watch my oil pressure drop bc of it and was thinking of making the purchase. What do yall think? Right now I do run a bigger wix oil filter on my jeep and usually put in one extra quart before the trail ride but I think this would help me the most on those angles.

It couldn't hurt. Except it hanging further down. Fwiw my jeep is on its side all the time and I've noticed no I'll effects. I would be more apt to install an accumulator instead. Depends on the sump height of that pan and how much more it is going to hang down or be more vulnerable that the stock one already is

The Moroso hi performance oil pan on the Quadratec site does not add any additional depth. That means the stock pickup will work just fine. Here's the Link.

The removable anti slosh top plate provides additional oil containment to reduce oil pump starvation. Includes a drain plug with rare earth magnet at the factory location and the original depth is maintained to allow fitment for aftermarket skid plates and to maximize ground clearance. Works with your existing oil pump and pickup tube and installs using existing fasteners and a standard OE gasket (sold separately). Hand crafted from heavy 16 gauge steel with a yellow zinc dichromate finish to resist corrosion. Add our Hi Volume Oil Pump assembly with pickup tube and screen to make the job complete.
Sounds like a good idea if I had an addtional $540 to throw at the heep. http://www.quadratec.com/products/51009_1012.htm

I can't justify $400 thrown at the 4.0.

Maybe on a full tilt stroker build. But if you're going to go through that, I'd rather have a V8

That 400 would be approx. 5 % of what I get to build a stroker.


Cheap insurance.

Who can afford you? Lol. Just kidding. For me, blowing up my 4.0 from oil starvation on extreme angles is the least of my worries. But like I said, given a lottery win....

A stroker doesn't have to cost that much but if you want the best parts they add up quickly.

No, but I hear the only issue is the crank sags after 500 miles.
