5 speed upgrades

Okay, my rig has the ZF S5-47 trans, is there anyone who makes heavy-duty parts for them? I've had a chewed synchro since I bought the truck, and may as well do a total rebuild with the best parts I can find. I've noticed some parts places offer either bronze or steel synchros, which is the better option? Has anyone ever used a trans cooler that bolts in place of a PTO cover to help cooling and increase fluid capacity?

Wow, I don't hear of that trans crapping out that often.

And I would go with Steel. Bronze is a soft metal. IMO
