    Default transmission cooler

    hey guys,
    just wonderin what transmission cooler would benefit ME the most...

    Ive heard all the wonderful commentary on the trucool 40k cooler, BUT im wondering if it justifies the extra cost vs getting the factory cooler (AC delco or the like) for my application...
    I hardly ever tow, just maybe a few times a month ill be messing around in the sand at the beach. which does throw my tranny temps up round 240...

    just tryin to save a little bit of money, while still getting a decent cooler.

    dont know if this is a "go big or go home" discussion, but wondering if the trucool is any more beneficial for extra cost or if the factory one would be my best route.
    thanks!

    Just saying you mess around in the sand makes me say spend the extra money.
    Running in sand is just as bad if not worse than towing.

    I will "second" this ! The factory stuff, both radiators and coolers are sized to be just adequate for "normal" use. Possibly a factory cooler for a 2500 or 3500 would do the job. (maybe) Ken
