Thanks guy's... Still no luck,,, I would love to know why it was never made....But I will say this much,,, If I really wanted one I would just have to make it.....

This was the last trade I had under my belt Before I got disabled... Building all kind of things out of Aluminum... It was a great job too..

So it may end up in the plan's...
So watch where you bounce that ball...

I'm thinking by the time this C-Cab is done there will be many things on it that you just can't buy...ANYWHERE'S...

Fins and aluminum are supposed to disapate heat better

I have one of those finned aluminum pans on my small block Chevy. Came on it when I bought it. I do not recommend it because after changing the oil for a number of years the drain plug and the threads all came out together. You have to replace the old drain plug with a self tapping repair drain assembly. I think the idea behind the aluminum and the fins was to disapate the heat better but I would not pay the extra money to have one.
