Did you have to move the exhaust out of the way to put it up?
I bought mine from PML: PML Deep Transmission Pan for Chrysler/Dodge 42RLE

My exhaust didn't have to be moved, but I have a 2005 KJ Limited, so yours might be different. I doubt it though. I also installed Skid Row skid plates and didn't have to make any modifications for the PML pan.

used it to bring home 2 12ft 4x4s to build a new hop trellis.

on a side note i am looking at upgrading the transmission cooler because the jeep will be used to tow a 3500# pop up camper and i saw that denso makes a radiator with the build in cooler and wanted to see peoples thoughts on this vs the mopar one. i also thought about just upgrading the factory cooler on the 05 or adding a 2nd inline stacked plate cooler.

I'd have liked to see those 12 footers hanging off the ends of the KJ... I'd really like to see the hop trellis. I've been growing them horizontal but want to go vertical this year. I only have three plants though. Horizontal makes harvesting a breeze.

As for the tranny cooling, I'd just get a rad for an 02 and plumb it in with the external. Twobobs had a write-up on here and others have done it too.

ordered up some new hardware for the swaybar links, getting the jeep ready for some rust removal this summer.

Nice. How did the Lube-Locker gasket work out?

I had eight of them on mine when I built my woodrack last fall. Oh, those were the days...

Would it make any difference in the performance of your Jeep if you did it really slowly instead? Asking for a friend.

the trellis is just a 4x4 with a 5ft 2x4 at the top with eyes for twine to be strung through. i wanted to do a 15-20 ft high trellis but im sure my wife wouldnt be a fan.

as for the radiator i wasnt sure if denso was good to go or should i spend the extra on the mopar one?
