GMC 2500HD Transmission cooler

H i Folks

I just bought a brand new GMC 2500HD with towing package. I would like to install additional transmission cooling, preferably one with it's own fan. Anyone done this so far? If so which one did you use and where did you put it?
Thanks Eric

Is this in diesel or gas?

Not on any of my trucks, but I've put this on a couple jeeps I've had.
Mounted behind the grille.

No reason to add one. The one that comes with the truck does an excellent job. I've never had to add an additional one to any of the newer Chevy 3/4 or 1 ton trucks that I had. Later RJD

I tow a 10K trailer with just the installed transmission cooler. I added the transmission temperature to the digital display to monitor it's temperature. Try that to determine if you need additional cooling.

My 2012 Chevy with Duramax/Allison combo seldom hits 165 with the factory cooling even pulling long grades towing.

Agree. Ran ours recently with outside temps of 100 and the everything stayed fine, but we did stop more often at rest areas to let tires, bearings and oil temps cool a little. Had the time and the brief rest did us good.
