auto trans. replacement pan

I have an "06 TJ Sport w/auto trans. I would like to replace the pan w/one that has a drain plug. Anything available oem or after market?
Thanks

Aftermarket support for the 42RLE transmission is not great but there are a few pans out there with drain plugs... YourCovers.com 42RLE Transmission Pan

But for those pan's exhorbitant costs, I would just drop the OE pan and have a welder weld a drain plug bung into it. I welded a bung into my pan for a temp sender and it only took a few minutes.

Or buy Mopar's new version of that pan which is slightly deeper in one location to help reduce the likelyhood of the tranny pickup sucking air while you're climbing a steep obstacle. Then you can take it to a local welder to install the drain plug you can find from places like Summit Racing

These are Mopar part numbers...

Pan: 52852912AC $7.50
Magnet: 446728 $2.45
Filter: 5282913AB $19.00

As you can see a new Mopar pan is cheap and a weld-in bung and drain plug from Summit Racing is probably under $10.

Not sure why, that is the correct p/n (I just double-checked it) and others have purchased that exact p/n from their dealership. Whoever told you it was not a valid number is either lazy or incompetent.

For those who are interested, that p/n is for the new "improved" 42RLE pan that is about 1" deeper in one corner to help prevent the transmission from sucking air on a steep climb... you can verify that is the correct p/n at http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ne...-myth-1101378/ where the OP couldn't tell the difference at first between his OE pan and this new 1" deeper pan.
