what filter is this?

Hi All,
while I was under my rig installing front stablizer kit I noticed what looks like some kind of filter housing on the pass side just above the bottom of the radiator. It looks as if there may be tranny lines? going to it??

It is a transmission cooler filter. The filter inside of it looks like a small roll of toilet paper.

I change mine when I service the transmission (fluid/filters.). I think that's at 60k, I'd have to dbl check the owner's manual under servicing.

It's super easy to change. I do mine as well as the 8-10qts (I think) of SP every 30k or so. Cheap insurance IMO. Takes all of ten minutes.
