Tranny cooler

I am thinking of getting this to put in my truck. What do you guys think? Is is too big...not big enough....??? When I pull my camper the trany temp is between 190 to almost 200....

Thanks for the help...

IMHO,

Get the biggest one you can; I haul a big camper too, and went with the Tru-cool 40k model. It fits well behind the three holes in your frony bumper.

Another vote for the tru-cool 40k. BTW your temps are not at all that bad, but with the trans cooler your tranny will be more confortable.

Update....I installed the new cooler and pulled the camper to the lake last weekend. The temp never got over 170.....Thanks for all the advice.....

I installed it in series with the factory one. I mounted it to the back of the bumper...works great....

Not hijacking, just a question about installation. Do y'all take the radiator out of the cooling loop? I installed a Hayden 679 in line with my stock cooler but left the radiator in the loop. I don't have a temperature gauge to compare temperatures just wondering what most guys are doing.

Thanks,
