Not worried about PS. It survived before, hopefully it'll survive again. Everything else on the Jeep is ready to go, the tranny cooler has always been on my list, this trip just pushed it to the top.

Now that the cat's a$$ of tranny coolers. It has the good AN fittings and good push-lock hose so you are sure to get a good connections to avoid leaks. Is it wired direct to the battery? If they have you going into a circuit then I would make sure you to use a relay along with the fuse they supply. I'll join in on the gathering when your ready to install.

It's here!



It doesn't wire directly to the battery, it has to be wired to a source that is "keyed" so it doesn't run while the jeep isn't.

It appears to have everything it needs with it....except tranny fluid of course.

Making sure I hook up the hoses correctly and getting it wired are the two biggest things that scare me, getting it attached to the jeep is the easy part. I also wonder just how much fluid is going to pour out on me when I unhook the hose at the radiator.

Cool you got it. If you have never changed the trans fluid then now is a good time. If your NOT going to change it then just get 2 quarts. I also suggest wiring in a relay and between us locals we can help you with that.
