Depends how much work your willing to do. Go with a stock one and its bolt in. Go with a aftermarket larger one than you will ahve to fab some brackets up to make it fit. A bigger aftermarket one would be better.

That is what I am using, a B&M Racing 29,200 BTU Transmission Oil Cooler (11x11x1.5)(PN 70274). Add in a Perma-Cool Remote Transmission Oil Filter Mount (PN 10678) and a WIX Transmission Fluid Filter (PN 51622) why you are at it.

Stacked-plate coolers are the best. Get a stock one from a newer truck in the JY if you don't want to drop the loot for a new aftermarket.

The cooler is about $93.00 and the filter mount is about $60.00. See Summit, Jegs, B&M or Perma-Cool. The oil hose is specific or spend the money and go braided stainless steel like I did.

Not enough to notice. If you're towing the truck's max trailer weight through Death Valley in June with the cruise set at 80mph, you probably still couldn't measure a difference in the 2 coolers' performance.

Seattle, did you upgrade to 3/8ths lines all the way back to the e4od. I have the same parts waitting to go on a rig, but I don't know if I want to bottle neck the 1/2" cooler and 3/8" t-stat/filter on a 5/16th line. If you upgraded to 3/8ths lines, did you have to put 5/16" fittings for the e4od and radiator onto the new lines, is that possible or did you use some kind of adapter?

Thanks bud.

Sort of. All are -6 AN lines which are equivalent to 3/8". Everything is using adapter fittings to -6 AN as they make a better connection. There is almost any kind of hydraulic adapter fitting you can think of available. See this link: BillaVista Tech Garage Plumbing Bible


E4OD Feed and Return







Perma-Cool Filter Adapter





B&M Transmission Cooler





Radiator Transmission Cooler





-6 AN Stainless Steel Hydraulic Lines

Hey Seattle-How did you attach the lines as they went along the body? Do they have special retainers or fasteners? I replaced my hard lines but just went with standard rubber transmission hose. I have the stock trans plate cooler and a Perma-cool aux filter too... -Kevin-

These clamps do very well with the lines that SeattleFSB used for his transmission. Those lines are common on the fighter jets as are the clamps.

those clamps are called adel clamps we use them a lot in the aviation field to keep fuel lines fron chaffing. I am pretty sure you can find them most places but theres a name for you.
