High air flow grill

Is there any grills that outflow the factory grill cause I'm thinking my Fab four replacement bumper is causing my truck to get warm while towing. Just wondering if changing to a different grill would help or do I need some aftermarket coolers or go back to stock bumper?

Just an assumption but a mesh grille would seem to outflow your grille. By the looks of your sig, I'd bet it's another issue, not the bumper

Tstats? Radiator issues... just a possibility. I kinda thought the same thing. When you say hot, like you have to pull over and cool down, what kind of temps.. oil, tranny ..etc are you seeing

Anything over 230 for ATF is TOO hot.
