when it gets close to 180* is when you gotta start really watching it!

With a stock cooler it's going to run about 80-100* hotter than ambient temp.

80-100 above ambient temps is normal.
220 is where lubricity of fluid starts breaking down exponentially and varnish forms.

I live in Louisiana where it's 100+ in the summer so when I start my truck in the afternoon the fluid temp is already 90* is their a cooler on the market that will stop the fluid temp from going 40-50* above ambient

40-50* above ambient (even at 100* ambient temp) is still well within normal opperating range. There's really no reason to worry until it climbs into the 200* range.

When I had just the stock cooler my temps would hit 170-180 with just the truck. With the 2nd cooler and towing 16k I'm now hit 180-200*
