Yep, I just left the dealer looking at this pan and measured the deepest corner which is front passenger and the dim. is 3.25". I checked my 06 LJ just now and it is the same. I also checked the dim. on the other 3 corners and those dim. match what is on my LJ. I have never had mine cavitate like others have said even when we are in Moab. If anybody needs the 3 other dim. to check their pan let me know.

haha..awesome....I just measured the depth of my old pan.

these dimensions are from the INSIDE of pan to top of pan for OLD pan.

Driver side front = 2.0 inches deep

Passenger side front = 2.5 inches deep

Driver side rear = 1.25 inches deep

Passenger rear = 2.25 inches deep

I cannot imagine they dropped the whole thing an inch. There is just not any room there...especially with a medic skid like mine.

O.D. dim. I measured the pan upside down on table, flange on table.
Passenger front 3.25"
Passenger rear 2.125"
driver front 2.5"
driver rear 1.25"
Hope this helps, Again my measurements are from outside to outside, Close enough to Solarpoers.

About 3 weeks ago I went to the dealer. There was one pan in their system that was a replacement for the 42RLE. That's the one I'm running. It's the same as the previous one that was on my 05 sport. Unless it's come out in the last few weeks, I don't know.

My parts guy checked for 06 TJ/LJ and said part number 52852912AC supercedes the old number.

Just wait 'til these pans shoot up in price like the speedo gears did...

This comes at a great time as we're about to service our trans at 25K miles.
Just ordered it online. When it arrives, if it clears the RE skid, the plan is to add a drain bung prior to install.

yep plenty close enough. The pan is not very thick.

It looks like there is slightly more volume in about the only place they could put it without becoming too low.

I actually saved my old pan initially because I knew there was a market for a higher capacity pan and I have the resources to mass produce one...but after seeing the lack of room to go bigger I did not see enough space to justify a benefit of enough fluid and going in to it any further.

guess I was wrong AND late to the party on that account.

I still use my old magnet at work to hang blueprints...it IS a nice big magnet..too bad it won't fit on new pan.

What is the big deal with the magnets? Everyone talks about how they are big and how they need changed. When I bought my new pan, I bought the new magnet as well. I threw both magnets in the pan. Why not. There was plenty of room. I can't find my damned receipt now to see what part number I ended up with, but if there IS a new one and it's deeper, I might as well get another as cheap as it is. I guess I need to call the dealer and see what they've got on record.

For those looking into changing your tranny fluid... Go to Home Depot, for like 30 bucks there is a plastic siphon pump that will suck 2 quarts at a time through your tranny dipstick. I used it when I changed my pan out a few weeks ago. It was awesome. Super fast, and very effective. It's meant for atvs and small engines, but I bought 10' of clear vinyl tube with it, and I can run it just about anywhere. Just put the tube in the dipstick, pump it up, and open the valve. From now on, I'll use it to service the tranny every time. It's SO much easier and cleaner than breaking out the 3'x4' pan to put under the oil catch.

new pan is on:





pretty sure the pan will clear my JeepMedic skid without issue...its not much deeper at all, little dissappointed actually. The magnet attachment area is much smaller and some of the passenger side dimples indent less into the fluid space, but overall...meh. My original pan was dented and pushed up in the middle a good 3/8"-1/2"...so it was still worth the $23

told ya it looked exactly the same.

I know you have had more issues than many with that trans..and I doubt this will be a fix all for you....but after looking back to when I installed the pan..once I got the fluid level correct it has been not something I concerned myself with since. Wife grabbed the old pan from shelf on garage (when I took measurements yesterday) and asked what was broken and where did that go...

I remembered back to why I was concerned with it..only had a small dent on side...my trans was slipping and not acting like it had been. The filter was due for change and I needed to straighten my skid anyway...

what I'm saying is there has been a serious improvement that coincidentally coincides with when I put on what I thought was only a slightly different pan.

Hope this pan helps you anyway..

i've always thought a dry sump tranny pan, with an external oil filter & reservoir would make the most sense for 42RLE...hmm...i have the old pan...worth looking into maybe??
