Ok. I will definitely install the tranny cooler and wait on the engine oil cooler . I believe my on board display shows the oil temp. I know it does the tranny temp. I will keep an eye on it.

Thank you to everyone who commented. I really appreciate it.

I run royal purple in my sub seams to keep the temps down. And I only change it once a year with a top off. And filter change. Best oil I have found gonna do the trans oil next.

I installed another aftermarket transmission cooler on my 2009 Suburban, and have pulled a Flagstaff 27RLWS for 18,000 miles and have had the transmission temps run less than 100 degrees more than ambient outside temperatures. I know heat is a killer of transmissions.
