Hole in transmission cooler

Well I had a wreck coming home from work the other day. Some lady slammed on her brakes and this truck in front of me slammed on his and i hit him in the rear. So I pull over got red transmission fluid pouring all over the road. From the front of my truck. Im like oh great LOL. So anyways I am in need of getting a transmission cooler for my truck. I saw this one and was wondering if it is up to or better than the stock one? If so I will get it. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you

those are tube and fin, they are pretty inefficient and i wouldnt trust one on my own transmission, what youll need is a stacked plate cooler. if you get a stacked plate one, then you can replace the stock one with it and not worry about it

I'm with Bob: stacked plate is more efficient and much stronger in construction. A little bit more bread but one of those might have survived your accident. I was just looking at them in the latest 4 Wheel Offroad magazine somewhere.

with the holidays i probably cant get you one that fast, best bet would be to check locally, autozone, pepboys, any big name company should have the coolers in stock
