32RH 3 Speed Automatic Deep Tranny pan skid plate

Anyone made a custom skid plate for the 3 speed automatic deep tranny pan?

What about just getting an engine skid? Covers both your oil pan and deep trans pan? Here is one that I made for a friend. That isnt a deep trans pan in the picture but it works with it.

skid plate

I have an engine skid and belly pan. Just looking to see what others have done for protection when they installed the deep tranny pan.

If you're worried about the deep pan being too low and interfering with the skid plate, I doubt it'll be an issue at all. I installed a deep pan on mine and it still has plenty of clearance away from the skidplate.

I'm guessing he was more worried about a rock interfering with the partially exposed tranny pan.

Maybe, but it's not exposed at all except from the side.

Jerry,
I have the 33 Engineering Skid and I did some damage to my stock pan so, I'm sure the deep pan is more susceptible to rock damage. I just rebuilt my tranny and I'd like to protect it.

I already have an engine skid but it doesn't cover the tranny. I'm really looking for someone that fab'd one up so I can get some ideas.

confused

Harpo, do you have an engine skid and the 33 eng transfer skid? or just 33 eng transfer skid?

The above poster is correct about the skid row leaving part of the pan exposed. The one I made is the same way - I think...I think I could extend it out further to the driver side and brace it...but Id have to check to see if you need to worry about the front drive shaft clearance when flexed.

skid plate

I have both. The front on my tranny pan is exposed. The stock one I had on there got beat up on the passenger side and now with the deep pan I believe it will get beat up even more. Just wondering if anyone has made just a skid for the tranny pan.
