Transmission cooler????

My traning gets hot when i haul the smallest loads and im thinking of geting two transmission coolers and runing them together to really keep my tranny cool. Is this a good idea? or even possible?? And does BD make a good cooler??

A 6.0 with a hot transmission? You've got bigger problems I'm thinking. The 6.0 cooler is huge. Something isn't right.

No need for an extra transmission cooler on a 6.0. Is it your incab gauge showing hot or do you have an external gauge, and if so what temp's is it showing?

Do you have digital gauges or analog? It could be a bad sensor. Digital gauges take measurement from the obd2 port. Either way how long have you had that tranny? How many miles?
