deeper trans pan

do they make such a thing as a deeper trans pan to hold more fluid? i think my trans burnt up from climbing hills, lack of fluid to the pump, caused the pump to stop working (now its whining badly). i was thinking of a deeper pan and maybe a longer filter to pick up the fluid in the back of the pan when the front of the jeep is pointing straight up

I wouldn't get a trans pan with cooling tubes in it if you ever plan on going off road. Mag Hytec makes a pan that holds 4 quarts more than stock, and has a port for a temp sensor as well. Mag Hytec Pan

They also make a slightly shallower one that holds 1.5 more quarts ATF than stock.

I've had the the pan from on my '98 44RE for a couple of years, and am happy. They give you longer bolts to go thru the thicker cast aluminum flange, but a word of warning that may apply to any of these cast replacements. The mounting holes drilled in the pan's flange did not allow too much wiggle room, due to the greater thickness. Drilling out each hole in the pan a tad, makes mounting it to the pan MUCH easier.

B&M 10280 - B&M Automatic Transmission Deep Pans - Overview -

I have this pan on my Ram with the 46RE and I've been happy with it. It adds an extra 4 quarts and its half the price of most deep aluminum pans.
