Adding an Aux trans cooler/oil cooler/ps cooler
 
I was thinking of possibly adding one or a couple extra coolers to my 04 overland.

Has anyone had any issues doing so, and what are your experiences.

Thx,

You would have to make some adapters but here is an excellent source.

Making adapters shouldn't be a problem. Has anyone done this already for any of the fluid systems?

Thx,

The power steering should already have a cooler out in front of the radiator/ac condenser I'm not sure if much would be gained by adding another. Adding a trans cooler would be beneficial if you plan on doing some towing, you could reroute the fluid coming out of the radiator to a cooler up front before it goes back to the transmission. I think cheapjeep was planning on adding a trans cooler.

Nah I have the tow package so I have all 3 already from the factory. I am considering a trans temp gauge though if I can find a place for it that doesn't look stupid.

I think that an extra trans cooler would be a good idea, because i red that by lowering the trans temp by 10 Deg C, the tranny life will increase a lot.
I was looking at my AC condenser and it seems that the PS cooler is an integral part of it. Could not find anything in the manual though.

I had a better look today at the AC condenser and indeed the upper 8 cooling rows are larger then the lower part, suggesting that they are used for the PS cooling and the lower smaller rows are for the AC condenser.
But i saw in the manual that there are separate PS coolers at some models as well.

I have the tow package as well, But, I am pondering on adding additional for added measure, and possible hybrid setups (air-water) just incase of severe heat/towing conditions.
