Trans cooler options

Im having a real hard time finding a 6.0 cooler.

anybody try one of these?

"BD-Power Auxiliary Transmission Cooler Ford/GM"



seems like it would be a nice option with the fan and the thermo switch.

any experience?

thanks

Patrick

No no, if you can't find a cheap and new 6.0 cooler then your next best bet is the huge tru-cool from dieselsite. I put one in and my temp problems are solved.

Hold out for a 6.0 - you have any local wrecking yards? I'm sure you could find one there. If not, I could probably come across one in my travels...

I thought buying a used cooler was a no no due to potential debris.??

The used cooler in my dad's truck is working perfectly, we flushed it prior to using it and blew air through it. Some people get a little over-paranoid.

Anyways, yesterday hauling 3 cords of wood on the trailer and another half in the back of his bed, temps reached only 164* and that was heading up the North Fork, down near Cody, Wyoming to deliver wood to one of our family friends. (The hwy into the east entrance of Yellowstone park). Ambient air temp was approx 75*. In my opinion if you go any other route you're paying more than you need to... but thats my $.02

Did you install a used 6.0?

Yes he did. I think his total price was around $50 with hardware. I found one in a local wrecking yard as well. With hardware, I'm probably about $65 into mine. So far so good...............
