Tranny cooler or deep tranny pan?
I did a couple of searches and can't find what I'm looking for. I have a 2011 1500 4x4 Hemi Crew with 4.56 gears on 35s. I regularly tow 7000 lbs on the weekends (car hauler w/ off road rig). I have never had a problem keeping the transmission cool, but will soon be installing a higher stall torque converter and want to keep temps down as much as possible.
I know on the 3rd gen 1500s you could replace the 1500 tranny cooler with a larger one from a 3500, but from what I've read, all the 4th gens 1500-3500 have the same tranny cooler/ac condenser combo
So what are you guys doing to keep the transmissions cool in the 4th gens while towing? Adding a second tranny cooler, deeper transmission pan, etc.?
Please limit answers to 4th gen only applications since the combined tranny coolers/ac condensers are different from the tranny coolers found in 2nd and 3rd gens. Thanks.
