running a secondary cooler question..

So I now have a new in the box tranny cooler...I did see on here were others have ran a second cooler but they put it infront of the radiator. Isnt that kinda robbin Peter to pay Paul? Coolin down tranny sure but preheating air to the rest of the system. So I was wondering about putting the cooler somewere else and maybe running a fan...or would it need it.
Nice tranny cooler hate to waste it. So what do you think?

Second part of the question. Lets say I ran the cooler on the tailgate (not gonna, it would piss off the dog) but would their be any issue with running the cooler lines that far? How far is to far?

I dont think the tranny cooler being right up front would hurt anything

I think the question is: what are you trying to accomplish with a second trans cooler? What temps do you currently see with the one OEM cooler?

Most people don't have trouble with the 5R110s getting too hot. By the time the tranny gets to the upper end of the safe temp range, the ECT and EOT are usually the limiting factors.

You don't need it. Highest temp I've seen towing is 190. That was in 100+ degree temps city driving with a 12k 5er

What do you consider too hot? I tow daily and in the summer on really hot days I hit 190 and sometimes a little more. 200 is too hot for me. I was thinking about getting a larger cooler as well.
