Does any one know if they make transmission skid plates for my 96' Tahoe? To be specific ones that will work with the deep tranny pan that i will be installing this summer possibly along with a tranny cooler and tranny temp gauge.

On a side note what is the easiest way to install the tranny cooler as in easier to remove grill or just try to remove radiator shroud?

I removed the grill to do mine. It took about 45 minutes for the entire job. That was including beer breaks.

Thanks that was my plan so it easy to remove grill just wondering on best way to do it even tho I got the Haynes manual on the truck.
Also since you've opened up your grill do u know why my truck has two radiators(one much larger and another only the width of the grill opening) and another finned cooler that I cant identify. I will post pics shortly.

I think the one is the radiator the other is for the AC.

I was thinking the same I'm just confused on what the other cooler is I don't know if it is the oil cooler or a stock tranny cooler which to my knowledge neither are available for my truck as stand alone coolers there are integrated ones in the radiator tho.

The small cooler is the factory auxillary transmission cooler. BTW, what brand is your new deep transmission pan, does it have a port for a temp sending unit?

I haven't ordered it yet but it is a B&M 3 pint deep pan with a drain plug. And the aux cooler I'm getting is also B&M rated at 13,000 btu and the temp unit and gauge are also B&M. Also I'm glad to hear I already have a cooler but it seems not to do enough because when I do alot of low speed or stop and go I can feel the heat from the tranny through the floor when I put my hand against the "hump".

Just looked up RPO codes for my truck and it says I should have aux heavy duty engine oil cooler and tranny cooler. Also learned which saddens me that the truck does have keyless entry original owner said it didn't.

Could one be the condenser for the A/C? trace the lines to the end and see . The others as mentioned are auxiliary coolers The fins are far to small to be radiator related.2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4
