where are the oil trans and power steering coolers?

I have a red puddle on the floor of the garage. I can't tell if it's trans or power steering. The top driver side of the condensor is wet. And the leak is definitely on the drivers side. But I can't pinpoint where.

Power steering was low 6 weeks ago but it's still good after I filled it and I'm still getting puddles.

Is the trans cooler in the rad? When I look up rads it lists no for oil cooler.

What's the small cooler down low? Power steering?

Thanks guys

No cooler in the rad. Attached to the front of the radiator is the combination AC condenser/transmission fluid cooler (1). The top part is the transmission cooler part. The smaller cooler (5) is the power steering cooler.

Wow. So it is the trans cooler leaking. Bummer.

Thanks man. I've never seen an ac condensor combined with a trans cooler.

Any negatives to just tossing an aftermarket trans cooler and bypass the factory cooler?

rockauto had it for 85 bucks shipped. So i just ordered a whole new condensor. it sucks that i have to charge the AC and then take the jeep to the dealer so they can top off the fluid. But what can you do...

So I went to change it today. What a pain. I ended up tossing an aftermarket cooler in it. It wasn't worth ripping the entire front end off the jeep to do it
