Tranny running too cool?

I have the 6 liter cooler installed and seems like it may be running too cool. I was pulling a trailer about 18K lbs from FL to GA and was running 155 running 73 on the interstate. Alot of times unloaded around town it runs about 120. Is that gonna cause me any problems. Before the cooler install pulling I would see 200-210.

The after install temps are right where you want them.

200-210 was way to hot

I have the same thing. My temps are way low now with my 6.0 cooler. Around town it never goes over 120. Towing my toyhauler fully loaded it runs at the most 150. It never ran that cold before. I also have a Mag Trannie pan
