I was told buy a trailer dealer they don't put coolers in trucks any more , he said they haven't installed one in years because it make the check engine light throw a code because it does something with the computer in the truck so not sure if I'm going to put one on mine. You might want to check with your truck dealer .
Thanks Sam 2581

In Canada & possibly in the USA, just about any U-Haul dealer can install a transmission cooler & usually for a very good price

These trucks have a cooler in them. Adding an additional cooler will help, adding a shift kit will really help, or just using a programmer to raise the line pressure and shorten the shifts will make the tranny last longer. A bigger cooler shouldn't throw a code, but using the programmer, you should be able to change the parameters to make it not turn on the CEL

Well now I have just been told that my truck has an EOM cooler already on it. Should I go ahead and put the larger one on it. My truck has 125000 miles and would like to keep it a while longer. Just dont want to spend money on something if I dont need it. Any GOOD advice is welcome. I have not had any transmission problems and dont want to later.

Its extra insurance. Etrailer.com, or many other retailers can get you set up with a couple of fittings for the tranny cooler lines so you dont even have to cut anything.

At 100k, did you do a tranny service, fluid and filter change? If you havent, get it done and have the trans guy put a shift kit in it. Its an extra $100 or $125 plus labor.
