I could have told you that it had integrated tranny cooler.. But you can easily run it to a universal secondary cooler or bypass the radiator ..Whichever you choose..

All you would have to do is either cut the line going into and out of the radiator to bypass ... Or cut only the line going into the radiator and run it to your after market cooler then from the out side of the after market back to the input on your radiator .. That way it cools in your aftermarket then goes thru the factory cooler and back to tranny. IF you did that it would ass about a quart or so of fluid to your system which will help also..


Easy as pie...

Coolers available at auto zone or whatever.. Just any old universal cooler...

Thanks.

Pretty new to this stuff. Despite what Jeep said, I think I'll still get the aftermarket cooler and have it installed as you suggested running the aftermarket cooler between the tranny and the radiator. Makes good sense and will hopefully reduce the cooling burden on the radiator for both the engine and tranny. Just hope there's enough room.

Mount it out in the front of the Radiator.. There is room.. If you got the heavy towind package you should already have the oil cooler out there on the passenger side so you still have the drivers side available to you for Tranny cooler.. Mr. Green

I checked to see if I have the oil cooler in front of the radiator on the passenger side, and I don't. So I'll have both sides available. Thanks for all the advice. I'll be getting the additional tranny cooler in the coming month before my big trip. I also have access to an infrared temperature gun from work. I'll shoot the line leading away from the tranny and see how hot it gets with and without towing just to see what it is before adding the new tranny cooler. I read that the closer to 195 degrees I can get the tranny, the better.
