towing at 13,000 feet

I just wanted to brag on the 7.3 a little. I towed my 20 foot flat bed gooseneck trailer loaded with a slide in camper, 4 quads, fuel, water, ext. I towed it across trail ridge road which gets above 13000 feet. What a beast the truck was. The trans ran a bit hot, like 230 a couple times.the egts hit 1400 for a second but the meth injection brought it back down. It was never lacking any power and I was really surprised at the balls it had. So my idea to keep the trans cooler is a bigger trans cooler with a electric fan mounted to it. Any other ideas would be great. Thanks.

More Transmission Cooler is always good (if it has a thermostat bypass to let it get up to temp).

Are you using a TransCommand or similar to shift it harder?

And, yeah, turbos + high altitude are just awesome together.
