tru-cool max vs 6.0 cooler or both?

After searching craigslist and ebay for a 6.0 cooler for a while I went ahead and ordered the tru-cool. It showed up today and oddly enough a 6.0 cooler showed up on craigs list that I am going to pickup tomorrow. now I need to decide.... The tru-cool or the 6.0 or both?! my tranny was holding 200 to 205 this weekend pulling my little 4500 pound boat. I also hit 200 empty the other day when it was 100 out.

What to do.... any ideas?

O yea the 6.0 cooler was half the tru-cools cost...

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

I would think that would be overkill. But the 6.0 is about as big as it gets. Mine won't go over 140 now. I am sure the true cool is good too. I would go for the 6.0 and sell your other one...

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..
