Dual Tru-Cool 4739's for transmnission cooling?

Do you think that it would help lower temps? I was concerned about load on fluid flow if I stacked two of them. Is it a non-issue?

What are you doing that you need two additional coolers? Your temps shouldnt be anywhere near that hot

No the temps are not super high. I was going to replace the original with two of the Tru Cool's vs a 6.0 cooler. I just found a Dorman equivalent of the 26 row Ford 6.0 cooler for $151.00 from Partsgeek.com. Anyone have any experience with these?

Curious... Why not just add one to the factory?

Go with the 6.0 you will be happy with it. I had a B&M fluid cooler with fan and it didn't do the job. I got a used 6.0 cooler from junkyard $50 and $35 to have it flushed. There is a reason why a lot of people use the 6.0 cooler, they work great and easy to install.

I will most likely just get a 6.0 cooler. I was looking for alternative to a new one, but a used one is more than reasonable. I think stuff out of proportion at times.

I run a tru cool 4739 in line with the stock cooler pulling 11k in 80 to low 90 degree temps on flats and some small hills and tranny temp never got above 185. Have to see what happens when towing the same from 5000ft to over 11kft in the mountains.
