Tranny cooler( ATO to WTO) swap

Ok guys here is what i think i have learned. I have been told that my tranny cooler is an Air to oil cooler(not acceptable) and i am considering changing it out to a Water to Oil cooler(what i really need). With the temps in the 80-90s here in Wyoming and probably going to be warmer in Spokane when i move, my tranny runs very close to 200, creeping up to 210 on occasion just driving around town. How difficult is it to swap it out and what all would i need to do?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Cool, i just hate it when i see my tranny temp creep above 200* Im looking at getting a BTS in about a year or so, but i dont want my stock tranny to go out before because of overheating. 120,000 miles on it so far.

If you want to delete it, just install a new 6.0 or the biggest aftermarket you can get and abandon the old one... Hell mine is not even plugged...

^^^^^ there is a write-up in the current diesel power mag about swapping the 6.0 Tranny cooler - although I haven't seen it myself (was told it was in there by a friend that owns a cummins) to tell you how detailed it is???
