Oil cooler question

What is the small cooler that's just behind the front bumper and below the A/C condenser? Is that an engine oil cooler or one for the power steering pump?

That is the tranny cooler, the engine oil cooler looks like a pipe on the side of the motor. My ZF6 has that as well, I believe the 99 and 2000 had that oil-to-air cooler, but the later model trucks had a slightly different manual trans cooler.

The manual transmissions had a cooler too? Interesting, though that makes sense with the use of ATF in them.

the lil tiny one at an angle IS the PS cooler, correct. You cant even see the factory trans cooler unless you look under the truck...

Yeah, that's the one I'm talking about. Is there any point in putting an aftermarket oil cooler on these trucks, or do they cool fine from the factory? Temp gauge on mine reads fine in 100deg temps.
