what trans cooler to go with

looking to upgrade to a bigger trans cooler. last year while plowing, I hit high temps near 220*. I was looking into the 6.0 cooler but also was thinking because while plowing it's low speed and with the blockage of air flow, to look into a cooler with a fan. what do you guys think?

I would say go with the tru-cool maxx the 40,000b gvw one that fits awesome behind the bumper. I think your plow mount might get in the way of air flow. So looks like a 6.0 cooler is a great option. As more more airflow, install a 6.0 fan on the 7.3 clutch and it will draw lots more air in while at low speeds.

Do u ever plan on or is your truck intercooled?

6.0 isn't a direct bolt in on the obs

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

Just get a LPD47391 Tru-Cool
Mount it behind the bumper and if you want the best results update to SD lines...result a 30* + drop mine doesn't get over 162* on a 90* day.

The SD lines are 3/8" the OBS has 5/16", larger more flow...you have to use the bypass tube to use the SD hard lines.

The bypass tube is mounted to the side of the trans utilizing the fluid ports. It is original on the superduty trucks with 4r100 trans in them. That bypass tube utilizes 3/8 lines to and from the trans cooler mounted up front.
