Who Makes a HD Engine Oil Pan?

Finally had the JK up on a Lift after doing Liberty(https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=53656) and the steering stabilizer isnt the only thing I need to replace.

So the question is who makes an HD engine oil pan OTHER THAN BENCHMARK DESIGNS?

I did search and couldnt find anything.

Thanks in advance

P.S.
Im Mr. 3000

As far as I know they (benchmark) are the only ones with an oil pan. http://www.benchmarkdesigns.com/inde...8d2nhu8devkf22

Skid plates: Some cover much more than the oil pan and have a price to match.

Thanks for info ^.

I was hoping someone would be make a product to compete with Benchmark considering their less than perfect track record with customer service.

Rock Krawler makes a Automatic trans pan.. maybe they or Poly will come out with a oil pan now that Benchmark has all but disappeared from here.

That is EXACTLY what I am hoping for. If a company needs a beta tester, I can get pics of what I do to oil pans.

I had the benchmark pan on order forever, I couldn't wait anymore. I went with ASFIR:


I think its stout enough to take a tough hit and not let anything tragic happen. You use two factory bolts in the rear tranny inspection plate and two factory oil pan bolts attach the little red piece, then another two supplied bolts to attach the plate to the red piece.

The problem I see with the Rancho one, is that it is held in place by silicon:

I know you dont like Benchmark, and I fully admit the customer service is tragic to say the least, but the oil pan is rock solid. I had it on my two door and it takes the abuse, sadly nothing else like it on the market. I plan on buying it again for my 4door.

I know they had some quality control issues early on but that issue is supposedly resolved.

I dont want to deal with the possible issue of not having a product that I paid for a prolonged period of time and more importantly not getting an accurate update on whats going.

I also dont want to support a company that operates like that which makes this situation that much more annoying.

As long as the surface it is being mounted to is clean it will hold. It has been used and abused by many JK owners just fine. Adhesives are pretty cool.

River Raider makes a real nice skid plate system. I think their oil skid can be used independently...I could be wrong.

Did that one come powder-coated, or is it bare aluminum?

Thanks,

This is one of the few skid plates we make in Steel. It will either be powdercoated red or white zinc coated.

I have been debating in my mind for a long time, over going w a full transmission/oil pan skid or something like benchmark or rancho. I honestly cannot make the decision. Should I fully cover or not? Is the added weight of a full skid worth it?

Just skid it. Poly, RROR, Rock Hard, and several others make great oil pan/tranny skids. JMHO.
