So are you recommending against getting the deep pan. I didn't even think about it static warmer longer but that makes common sense. I thought about doing it......really just to be doing something to the truck.
Just go to your local Allison tranny repair shop, anywhere that works on busses and order an allison 1000 deep pan. They are about 60 bucks and look just like the stocker only a bit deeper, they are used on the kodiak and top kick trucks. You will also need a deep filter, 16 bucks.
