Take a look at an FX4 at the dealer. They come stock with an external tranny cooler.

It all came from Auto Zone. I direct wired it for now (fused with relay to ignition on source). Will install a temp sensor someday.

If push comes to shove, you can put a fan on the stock cooler (assuming you have one).

the fan is bolted to the cooler. The cooler is bolted to the truck. If you look at the pink in the second pic- thats the spacer I made/used. You can buy combo kits that have the fan and cooler in one kit. It would have been easier to go that rout. This was a weekend project using what Autozone had in stock. I had to make a solution to mount the fan to the cooler.

would running both coolers have any ill effects? or just run a bigger cooler/fan combo
