Can someone with a 99-06 with a 5.3, 4l60E and stock exhaust measure this for me?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone with a stock y-piped 99-06 and a 5.3, 4L60E, and factory exhaust (at least to the y-pipe) measure the distance between the top of the driver side crossover pipe (after the cat, where it crosses under the tranny pan) and the bottom of the rear tranny pan, as shown in the attached picture?

 

Many moons ago, I installed a TCI 378000 deep transmission pan, but the problem was it lacked the rear indent the factory pan had...not knowing I had other options, I cut the midpipe off and re-welded a new one on, but lower than before, so i could still drop the tranny pan for service. However, I later realized that a TCI 378014 had the factory style recess that would've saved my midpipe. The new midpipe is a little janky and hangs lower than I would like. 

 

Why this matters now is that I'm going to put long tubes on the truck which will necessitate a new midpipe, and I want to make sure I have adequate clearance to drop the pan in the future. Thank you!
