Tru-Cool #4739 transmission cooler

I got mine from Dieselsite.com and put it on. I don't have a before temp because I didn't have my gauges put in yet, but it's been running at what looks like the 125* mark. On my Autometer Ultra-Lite it's on the first mark between the 100 and 150 mark so I'm assuming 125.

I haven't pulled with any loads yet so not sure how that'll change. Make sure you put hose clamps on ALL of the lines. I did not and blew one off going down the interstate. Trans dumps fluid QUICK so be careful.

Nice job. I will be looking into one of these soon. Either the tru-cool or the 6.0 cooler. Not sure yet.

I did the same as this, and added a 9 or 10 inch electric fan. NO more cooling issues. I plow a lot of snow and the trans used to get warm. Now it doens't budge much over 160* pulling or pushing!

6.0 cooler is a lot bigger and easier to install.
