There are aftermarket pans available for the 4T65. I've seen it in threaded drain configurations, and in deeper (High capacity), too.

Bill...anything on the 60'* that you know of?

Of course the best bath I watched Mechanic Dan take was on a Jeep w/a drain plug. Must have been 200 quarts in there...what a mess...and that was after he drained as much as would come out.

I myself would like to have a 60-E and 60 pan with a drain plug....

But All I have ever done is used a large but short Sterlite container from wally world... Less than $4 and it works better than any catch pan I have had... It fits just right under the trans pan and helps lessen the mess...

Just go to AutoZone and get a drain-plug and bung, and get someone to weld it in for you next time you do the tranny.

No thanks. That'* asking for corrosion at the weld. I'd rather just replace my pan with one that already has the plug.

Yes, they're available for the 60 as well.
