PML designed this transmission pan for GMC and Chevrolet 1990 to 1996 model year trucks and SUVs with the 4L80E and 4L85E transmission.
Some examples of vehicles that this pan can fit are:
Vehicle configurations vary. Always verify your transmission and clearance.
Many 1997 and newer vehicles have the frame cross member running under the rear of the stock pan and do not have enough clearance for this pan. See PML part number 9437 for a transmission pan that clears the frame.
Note that PML part number 9437 will not clear the transmission internals on 1990 to 1996 transmissions.
PML also makes a low profile pan for GM cars with these transmissions.
The pan has a boss that can be machined for a temperature sensor.
Both GM early model and late model 4L80 filters should work with this transmission pan. This PML pan has filter supports to hold the filter in place. A filter extension is not needed.
The installer must verify fitment and installation.

Cable Bracket on Stock Pan

1998 Safari Trek Motorhome
David installed this transmission pan on his 1998 Safari Trek motorhome with a 454 engine and a 4L80E transmission. He also has a Gears Vendors over drive installed. He tows a 3500 lb trailer and had blown 2 transmission in 60,000 miles before installing this PML pan.
David reported that the isntallation was "really simple". He drilled and tapped the pan himself for a temperature sending unit. The first hole was too low so he had to make a second hole.
Mike installed a PML 4L80 transmission pan on his 1997 K3500. He does a lot of towing with his K3500 and wants to keep his fluid cooler during trips. He installed the PML pan and a rear differential cover in 2004. Ten years later the truck still runs great.

Darrel installed this PML pan on his 1995 Chevy Suburban 2500 4x4 with 6.5L diesel. A cable bracket had to be trimmed down and it was a tight fit.
