This heavy duty, extra capacity Ranger and Explorer Ford transmission pan fits 2WD and 4WD vehicles with the 4R55E, 5R55E, 4R44E, 5R44E, and A4LD transmissions. These 4 and 5 speed transmissions are found in primarily in 1985 to 2001 Ford Rangers and Explorers but can also be in several models and years:

Some vehicles with a 4R55E, 5R55E, 4R44E, or A4LD transmission may have interference in the way of a deeper pan. Interference can be from many things, such as a cross member or the exhaust system. Please check your vehicle for clearance before ordering.
Please check your vehicle to be sure there is enough room to allow our pan to clear your exhaust system. Some customers with the 4.0 V6 have had contact with the catalytic converters or resonators that are located along side or in front of the transmission pan.
The A4LD transmission is a C3 transmission with overdrive.
