Transmission cooler

Any recommedations for a 2016 Ram 1500 5.7L engine? I would like a neat bolt on installation, not one where I have to cut lines and use clamp on rubber hoses.
I'm seeing transmission temps as high as 235 degrees, which concerns me even though my guages and tech say this is within specs even though it is 50 degrees higher than I ran on my 2011 with the same engine.

235 is not too bad, your engine is running 180-210. I would look at some Ram truck owners forms.

Perhaps you are right. It just seems hot to me. I will see what she runs in hilly country.

Check out Derale Performance. They have the "Good" stuff, not the cheapy 30 buck garbage.
They carry all different types, sizes, clamp on stule, and the good AN fitting type hardware.
I replaced the oe Ford trans cooler, 13 row, with a Derale 40 row stacked plate design that has 3 times to btu heat dissapation of the oe unit.
Not cheap, but not overly expensive for the quality you get.

Do you have the 8spd? It has a heater/cooler built in already. Ours runs at 185-190 towing or not.

Do you have tow haul mode on? I was towing on flat road so I took it out of tow/haul and I noticed the transmission temperature starting to go up. Put it back in tow/haul and the temperature dropped back to were it runs when not towing about 180F
