Thanks for the Kind words, regarding the Write-up I did and the remark about the Wives...........as I mentioned, doing this 40K Cooler Swap, was not only one of the easiest Mods/Upgrades I've Done, but also One of the Best mods, to help with Keeping Transmission Temps Down when Towing Boat, and last Mfleetwoood, Installed with the Same True Cool 40K Cooler, That I installed.

Could you run both the stock and this aftermarket one? I am interested in helping the tranny anyway I can. I am also looking into the corvette servo upgrade to give a more solid shift.

The 40k Cooler that Fleetwood and I have Installed, is Almost 3-Times Larger than the Factory Trans. Cooler, and Does an Excellent Job with keeping the Transmission Temps Down,
Another Item/Part.......that helps with Reducing Transmission Temps is a Aftermarket.....Aluminum Finned Deep Transmission Pan, and the one I installed, was Mag-Hytec's Transmission Pan(Link below)......I had it installed before going with the 40K Cooler, and it reduced my Transmission Temps on Avg. by 10-Degrees.

I don't pull a trailer but a few times a year. I mainly am intersted in this mod because of wheeling in the sand. So the cooler I can keep the trany and engine for that matter the happier I and the truck will be.
@99'HEARTBEAT. I have question about the lines running to the new cooler. I see where you flipped the one on the left of the pic. How did you stretch the line going to the right side of the cooler (as looking at your pic)?

Underneath the Radiator, mounted to the fame, there's an E-Clip(Plastic)which holds both Transmission Hard-lines in place, all I did was remove and move the e-clip over just a little...2-3ins" to the Right and then Drill one new hole for the E-Clip, and those 2-3ins" was all that was needed to installed the Right-hand side Transmission Hard-line to the New Cooler, Most guys that have done this swap, don't bother with moving the e-clip......and that's why I didn't mention it in the write-up.....

Living in an area where we have four distinct seasons and, as a result, sometimes near-freezing temperatures, I am curious if a transmission cooler can be too big? I know up north people add bypasses to handle the cold weather. Are there any locking issues with the Tru-Cool 40k GVW in weather circa 25-40F, especially when the truck is first started/cold?
