Soon as I get some extra moolah, a Tranny filter/flush, valve body, and 6.0 cooler are next in store for my truck. Ugh. I swear, the list just keeps getting longer, lol!

I was debating whether to do a coolant filter or not, I have NEVER had a vehicle with one, nor even seen one, but at the same time, I can see where it MIGHT come in useful. Just hard to justify the price.

not to thread jack even more but honestly international 7.3's have them from the factory, they all over the diesel market its not a gasser thing by any means... and for only 100 bucks its worth it, so i got it(im sure i could build my own but the kit he has is so well put together)

anyway that being said, if i get get a 6.0 trans cooler cheap i would, i have the trucool and it does well so no complaints here.

i guess that is my main question, brand new trucool (or something similar) or get a used 6.0 cooler. the used part is what scares me.
