    Mike, I couldn't agree with you anymore, on this looking like a Factory/Stock Setup!!....and being easy to install.

    Adam......I've been out doing errands over the last couple of hours...in the city stop-n-go traffic and on the freeway and the Trans Temp was right at 120 degrees, which is about 20-degrees cooler, than before doing the Cooler Swap.

    Ya Steve, I also didn't think it would be this Big of a Change, in the Temp reading's....I've been very Impressed with the Results!!

    Thanks Del....:glasses:

    Thanks for the link Mike. If the price of gas ever goes back down & I go back to towing mine I may get one of those coolers. I have 2 of the old style, in series (claimed 24,000 GCVW cooling capacity lol), but on a 95-100 degree day pulling long hills my trans is seeing 190-205 degrees. My boat/trailer is 7500 lbs for a total 12,500 GCVW & the old style coolers just aren't making it.

    This True Cool is a 40,000 GCVW......When I bought it from Oregon Performance, they were running a special.....of $119.00.....and the EAD Mounting Bracket kit and the fitting's that come with it was around $59.00 plus shipping, right now IMO it has been a Very Good investment.

    Hey Mike, I went to the ebay link & looked for dimension specs on that one cuz the pic they have of it there only looks like it's half as tall as the one on your truck. Do you remember what the length & width are?

    Stephan here are the Specs on the Cooler,
    NEW Long Tru-Cool Max transmission cooler P/N LPD4739. This cooler is rated at 40,000 GVW and Measures...8.5"x22.75"x1.25"...This is a stacked plate, low pressure drop unit. This cooler has 3/8" inverted flare fittings and comes with a thermal bypass valve so you can use this cooler in cold weather and the fluid will bypass until the transmission comes up to operating temperatures. This is the ultimate cooler for heavy towing and is a must for heavy duty applications, including racing. Heat is what kills an automatic transmission. If you want to extend the life of your transmission and avoid or prolong a costly rebuild, this is very cheap insurance. All parts and instructions are included to mount and plumb this cooler. This cooler has the bypass valve.

    Thanks Mike. I clicked every link over there & they didn't show anything but the pic. That's a very efficient cooler for the size.

    Ha. I like to pick on her a bit (weve been married for 9 years), but I cant complain as I've gotten quite a few upgrades. She usually rolls her eyes then tells me to get it if I want. Then I know if I do I have to make sure to bring flowers, dinner, gifts (im sure you get the idea). Thats why I just put an in dash nav system in her car, that way I can say "but look what I just got for your car". Ahhhh the married life:lol:
