Stock filter will work fine, the aftermarket ones still use the stocker...

Joe you may want to look over the stock setup really close because if I remember right the pan acutally keeps the filter from falling out of the pump. Yes it fits quite tight into the seal but that is really just for sealing purposes and to hold it until instalation of the pan.

I worked for a tranny shop about 5 years ago. The owner of the shop was a real hard *** about things like this and it seems like this issue came up one time. I think we fixed it by epoxying a shim on the bottom of the filter so that with the new deep pan installed it would have the same effect on the filter.

Not trying to pick at your new invention, just dont want you to have problems.

I am sure RacerX will be on here shortly to give us his oppinion.

I removed a oversized pan from Kyles truck when we were working on it, we replaced it with a 2wd pan and the filter was hitting the bottom. It was the stock 4wd pan. But I will welcome all coments

Get some gaskets and bolt that baby up, inquiring minds want to know!!! I think the fins in the cast pans make the most difference, as well as the extra fluid capacity.....
