Anyone installed an oil cooler?
 
Has anyone installed an aftermarket crankcase oil (not transmission) cooler?

If so, what kind?

If you've researched this topic and have an opinion, then post away too!

Does the tow package have a cooler/radiator for the oil? I thought we had just the one for the transmission, but if we have it for the oil too then that would be sweet cause then everything on the ride stays nice and cool!

I know on mine there are 3 seperate coolers (Coolant, Trans Fluid, Oil)
I also have the towing package.

Yeah ditto that, mine has a factory fitted engine oil cooler.

If yours doesn't would be a simple enough task to complete.
Obtain a sandwich plate oil cooler adaptor, and there's heaps of room to mount a cooler up front.

Im assuming if you have the factory towing hitch, you have the heavy duty cooling system. If you have the heavy duty cooling system you have the trans and oil cooler. If so where are these located on the front of the Jeep just so i know for future reference?

I dont consider myself super knowledgeable but the few things i know are not this. One would hope that I can easily identify my radiator, which i can and know, but the other two coolers that are spoken of on the jeep im not too familar with. Looking for some help on this one.

Thanks
