Mine will end up very much like that when I'm done. I know it will take a lot of cutting to make the pan fit around the Durango's front diff and steering rack. Luckily the thing that makes this install difficult in one way makes it easier in another. The diff on Dakotas/Durangos is hung with the engine by the motor mounts. This means I have to fab up brackets for the diff, but it also means that I can have the pan very close to the diff because they will be mounted together.
I just got back from PA and had lots of time to think (if thats possible while driving a Deuce 500 miles) about the project, and have thought about the capacity and clearance issues. I don't mind giving up 1 quart because this will be going into a commuter vehicle, but then again, it will also be used to tow a 5000 lb. trailer up to 1200 miles (or more) a few times a year. I'll know more when I'm able to set the engine into the engine compartment for the first time, but I'm hoping I'll have room to add capacity in other areas of the pan, such as a side bulge similar to B1jetmech.
