Just spending some couch-potato time looking at oil pan protection (without going to a full skid plate). Saw that Rancho makes them for the JK 3.6 but none for the JL.

So got me thinking what difference there is in the actual oil pans between models. Rockauto is a good place to see what is what. Turns out there is one oil pan sold for both models, the ULTRA-POWER 264357.

Then looking further the Mopar pans are different part #s and a noticeably different design (might be why the JKs use 6qts and the JLs 5qts, since the JL pan has a deep ramp to the front of the motor, and the JK is flat).

So it would appear that Rancho plate would work with either motor, just a bigger gap in the front. Maybe I'll be a guinea pig for this lol.

Or maybe since the Mopar oil pan is only $26, just carry one as a spare :) :)

I can't believe what a great price some of these parts are. Like the Mopar lower control arms for $60 a pair.
