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.

I answered your question over in the other post - which you can disregard since you have the 45RFE. Certainly the better of the two trannies installed in the Liberty.

You're in better shape than those running the 42RLE with the standalone trans cooler - your in-rad cooler stabilizes the trans fluid temps much more than the standalone so you don't need an additional cooler. Besides the fact the 45 is a more sturdy unit to begin with. And since you'll be on the highway with air moving over the radiator - and you're adding the HD cooling - you're in great shape.

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!

I've pulled my 6X10 enclosed from Northwest Ohio to Boston twice , to Orlando Fla and back once, and all over Ohio and had no issues with over heating etc
