Update:

So I pulled the pan and it is warped. I tried to flatten it out and put it back on, but there are two spots that I can't get completely flat.

I was looking around online and found a pan for $15 but its for a 32RH transmission. The pan looks exactly like the TF999 pan, and I know that the 32rh replaced the tf999. But I want to make completely sure before I buy the pan from the 32rh.

Also, does anyone know where else I might come across a pan for a TF999? The only things I can find online are deep pans and aftermarket options that are very expensive. Rock auto has one that they claim will work with the TF999 but its in a different shape when I look at the part number in google images.

I saw that one, and may have to go ahead and bite the bullet and get it. But I was hoping to be able to get the one off of craigslist for free (plus shipping) if it will fit.

Question, though: Since the one you bought is a deeper pan, is there still room between the pan and the skid plate to get a wrench in there to loosen and tighten the screws? Or did you drop the skid plate?

Plenty of room. I have a flat skid plus cut the transmission bracket an inch lower and the pan still just clears the skid. It would be easier the change with the skid out of the way though and if it's been leaking it might be good to clean the oil soaked sand out.

90% of pan leaks are from overtightening.

Yeah I'm pretty sure mine was over tightened by whoever messed with it last.

Anyone know if the 32rh pan will work?

Yes it will work. They are pretty much the same trans. The tf999 was renamed 32RH in 92, had to do with the torque convertor.

32RH History

In 1992, the TF999 received an electronic locking torque converter. This new arrangement was renamed the 32RH. The locking torque converter reduces operating temperatures, and increases fuel economy by eliminating slipping at higher speeds. The lower operating temperature prolongs the life of the transmission. The 32RH was used behind the 4.0L I-6 in the YJ, XJ, and TJ. The designation has a meaning behind it.

3 - number of speeds
2 - torque handling (2-300 ft-lbs)
R - rear wheel drive
H - hydraulically controlled

Specifications
Gear Ratio
1 2.74
2 1.54
3 1.00
R 2.20

Fluid Capacity: 8.55 quarts of ATF+4

Applications
Year Engine Model
'XX-'XX 4.0L I-6 XJ Cherokee
'92-'95 4.0L I-6 YJ Wrangler
'97-'02 4.0L I-6 TJ Wrangler

Thank you for your response. That is what I thought.

I'll go ahead and get this pan, since its just about a $15 gamble. If it doesn't fit, then I'll get the one from Summit.

Haha. I am a sticky skipper on most forum but the FAQ here I use very often.
Saved me a ton of post and wait time
