IIRC, there is not very much extra room in the pan. I'll take a look to see if I have any additional pictures of the pan.AZ-Ted, this is kind of a shot in the dark but how much room do you remember there being behind the drain pan once it's mounted?
I ordered this just to see if it will fit but figured I'd see what I can find out on here as well.
My concern is that it will protrude inside the drain pan to far. This would be threading in in the place of the stock drain plug.
Replacing this tranny filter SAVED my truck!! I highly recommend if your truck won't move!!personally, i didn't think undoing all those bolts that hold it in and re-installing was worth it. I really think there is more risk in dropping and cleaning it then leaving it alone, though i do not speak from any experience or knowledge concerning it, just by looking at it and hearing that the o-ring may leak air which will cause tranny issues.
with that said, I am seriously considering installing an inline filter but need to do more research. I do not want to introduce particles from the filter into the tranny obviously so it needs to be a filter that will not do that and of very high quality.
would be nice to have a clear one of there was such a thing, that way you could see your fluid color and status of the filter.
