how can I tell what trans
How can I tell what trans I have with out a build sheet still waiting to recieve my buildsheet from chrysler. Looking under the hood I have trans lines running frin the trans to my radiator and back. Do I need ti add a extra cooler or would it be ok. Im ordering the hd cooling fan shroud and mechanical fan in the next few weeks and wanna know if I need anything else
Nevermind guys found out Ive got the 45rfe and a trany cooler built in to the radiator. Should I still add a stand alone cooler im going to be hauling a 6x12 enclosed trailer from Michigan to texas and will be adding all the hd cooling and a brake controller.

The biggest issue with towing a trailer - with ANY tow vehicle - is stopping. We can pull a locomotive with our KJ but ain't no way we're gonna stop it. You've CYA with the brake controller you're installing - as long as you drive like you're towing something rather than attempting sports car maneuvers!
