Mopar has a new pan for the 42RLE transmission

I nearly forgot to mention here that I read an announcement a few weeks ago that Mopar released an improved version of the 42RLE transmission pan for the 2006 model year TJ. It holds more ATF for slightly better cooling and it makes it far more difficult for the transmission to suck air on an extremely steep climb. It of course can be installed on earlier TJs that have the 42RLE which started with the 2003 TJ with the 4.0L engine

So if you're in the market for a new pan for your 42RLE automatic transmission or just want the slightly increased capacity, the Jeep dealer can get it for you. I don't have the p/n however, the Jeep dealer's parts department I use to work with is no longer a Jeep dealer.

Unlike the only aftermarket pan for the 42RLE I'm aware of from RockKrawler, the Mopar pan should fit with pretty much any aftermarket skidplate or bellyup skidplate.

Anyone have this pan? Pic VVV

YourCovers.com 42RLE Transmission Pan

What's strange is that they DO NOT lower the pickup?

Jerry, I've looked all over for the new Mopar pan part number without success. Currently, we overfill by about 1/2 quart (pint) since we had a scary cavitation a couple of years ago.

I just called the dealer to confirm this. I'm having my 42RLE serviced tomorrow & they will install it. The pan is indeed an upgrade with more capacity. The "unofficial" reason for the change is the cavitation we all know as common to the 42RLE...but Jeep will not admit it since it implies recall issues & major safety concerns. You need a new magnet when replacing the 03-05 pan with the 06 pan.

PN's:

Pan: 52852912AC - $17.25
Magnet: 4446728 - $5.78

Jerry mentioned it was a new release from Mopar.

It sounds as if none of the factory TJs left the line with this pan installed.

List price is only $9.60 on that tranny pan.

If it was a plastic interior trim piece, it would be $200.

I just ordered a pan and magnet from my local dealer for $13.52 out the door. That's really cheap for anything at the dealer!

Hmmm are you sure???

I have a receipt from dealer dated sep 21 2007 for a replacement pan, magnet, and filter.

pan: 52852912AC 7.50
magnet: 446728 2.45
filter: 5282913AB 19.00

I am pretty sure that the capacity is the same. I sure as hell remember it looking identical to my old pan...except for the slight dent I had in mine.

the new magnet is much smaller and the dimple that it sits in is smaller but I thought everything else looked the same.

I think I still have my old one...I'll have to go look.
