Has anyone seen a metal pan with a drain plug yet? I just dont trust a plastic pan with "lifetime" fluid. Looking under the truck appears there is a fill plug but not sure of the procedure to fill. I like to change it every 25k or so...

Perhaps with time an upgrade will come out? I agree plastic pans don't exactly inspire a lot of confidence, especially given the relative prowess of the off road worthy Tremor.

There's a shop in Florida (i think) that makes motor and trans skid plates to protect the pans. I haven't seen one in the wild as yet and their website isn't the greatest but I did confirm with them that they do still offer them
