My pan is leaking and need to do a gasket replacement. Where can I get a pan with bung for temp gauge and do I need to remove the skid plate to get to the pan? Next question is what is the skid plate connected to? Seems like it holds up the transfer case and is not just bolted to the frame. It's a 1998 4.0l

Don't think I've ever seen a bung for a temp gauge on the pan but maybe out there. I replaced my pan with one that has a drain plug best thing I've ever done.
The skid plate holds the transmission up when you drop the pan make sure you support the transmission with a jack. There's also a transmission support that my need to be replaced while you're there. And yes you need to drop the skid plate to get to the pan.
