Trans Cooler Help

I am looking to upgrade my trans cooler on my 02 F250.

I know people say go with a 6.0 but I am unable to find any that isn't brand new for over 200.

So does anyone have any specs on the size of the stock 7.3 and 6.0 coolers? Like height, width and thickness.

Going to see if I could possible find a haynes one that is decent size for cheap.

Thanks

You know the size?
You have one?
Did you replace the stock one or run them both?

Just a suggestion - There are two Ford Parts places in the Supporting Vendor list. Both offer discounts. Maybe contact one of them to see what they can do for you. They'd probably have the dimensions also. Just a thought.

Sunrise Ford
Auto Fair Ford


EDIT: Just for reference - I'll let you decide which one is the 7.3L cooler. - Both bolt up to the same holes.

You can also wire it in series according to the installation instructions from diesel site. That's what I was thinking of doing.
http://www.dieselsite.com/specialord...ioncooler.aspx

The 99-03 stock 7.3L cooler is a 28k GVW model. This Tru-Cool Max 4739 unit is a 40K model.
This cooler is a "stand-alone" cooler designed to handle the heat load by itself, but in the 99-03 Ford trucks it can be used as an add-on cooler in addition to your OEM cooler.

that is what i was thinking about doing, running another one in series if i can't find a good deal on a 6.0 cooler.
really don't want to pay like 200 for a cooler when those haynes and other universal ones are $50 new.

Tru cool has the 3/8 in line from the get go, where the 6.0 cooler is 1/2 inch that needs modified to fit. That plus the cost has me leaning towards the tru cool. Haven't read a bad review yet either.
