Drain, Level Check and Optional Temperature Sending Unit Locations
PML located the drain plug on the driver's side of the pan. On the side of the pan, the drain plug is less likely to get damaged.
The level check hole is on the passenger's side, in the same location as the stock hole. This hole can also be used to fill.
PML designed the pan with two locations that can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit if needed. One location is on the passenger's side and one location is on the driver's side. The machining charge for PML to drill and tap the pan is $40.
Filter and Gasket
This PML transmission pan works with the stock filter, available from any auto parts store.
PML includes a cork gasket, of our own design, for this transmission pan. Some folks prefer to use silicon "gasket maker" which also will make a great seal. The factory stock gasket will not work with the PML AB60 transmission pan. Additional cork gaskets are available for purchase from PML.
Baffles on the inside of the pan help reduce sloshing and aid in heat dissipation.

2008 Tundra 5.7 4WD
Orsy installed this pan on his 2008 Tundra 4x4 iForce 5.7. The installation went smoothly and took about 1 1/2 hours.
Steve installed this PML transmission oil pan on his 2008 Tundra. When he was removing the stock pan, four stock bolts snapped during removal and he had to drill them out. Other than that install was great and simple. He used the PML cork gaskets for this installation. His transmission fluid temperatures dropped about 4 degrees Celsius at maximum running temperature, which is "awesome". Pan sits right flush with the frame and took the estimated 3 1/4 quarts.
