is there a magnet in the new pan to attract all the metal shavings? Maybe its just a bad camera angle?

A DERALE pan would have been a better choice. Even though you added extra capacity, that shiny pan is mainly for looks. The Derale pan has tubes running front to rear of pan through the fluid acting as a tranny cooler, it also adds about 2 quarts extra capacity.

I think the B&M is steel but I'm not sure. An aluminum pan would have been worth the extra coin as it would last much longer and provide better cooling properties. Unless you only drive your truck on nice days, its going to rust in no time.

It does look good though.

Well the aluminum b&m runs upwards of $150, where the steel is probably 50 or so.

Exactly why you get what you pay for. After a few winters, you'll wish you had the original pan back on.
