We've never been allowed to drive trucks on the weekend but I could at least keep up with traffic before. We get in trouble for harsh cornering, excessive brake and acceleration, speeding, and excessive idleing (10 mins or more).

Drivers were sober both times. They just both decided they needed to make that turn or exit at the last possible second and likely didn't look before going for it. Basically, people not paying attention while driving. It's a serious pita dealing with the post accident crap at work. There was enough damage to park the van. The front bumper contacts the driver's side tire when making right turns. It bent the core support on the left side as well. Plus, we have no spare van anymore, so we are essentially down another tech because I'll be riding with another guy. One of our other techs is out of his van too because of a mechanical failure.
This is the third time this has happened to me in this work van, and it also happened to me once in the TJ on the freeway as well. I swear I have the next to worst luck driving here. At least I'm not at fault.

Anybody have experience with these heatsink type transmission coolers?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/24-Finned-Al...454275&vxp=mtr

Would be a piece of cake to grab a big one (24") and mount it up under the rocker between the edge of it and the frame. Would take some cooling load off the radiator, and also clean up the lines dangling down under the front of my truck, that are ugly, and leak.

Some guys on IFSJA have installed them, I just get curious how well they would cool without a ton of airflow.

Guess it would be easy and necessary to install a temp gauge down there in line. It's got me thinking though....I have never run a temp gauge but I do run a B&M plate style cooler on the front of my radiator, and then it goes into the radiator from there (cools before entering the radiator, i've been told you dont want to "over cool" the trans fluid but don't know if that's true). Thoughts?

I doubt you would have to worry about over cooling the fluid with our climate. If we saw a lot of cold days and/or snow, it may be different. I would imagine the heat sink type would work just fine or at least better than nothing.

Well, I have alot more than "nothing" now. I have it running through a B&M plate style cooler, and then it runs into the radiator's stock trans cooler.

I'm curious if a heat sink style like that (dual pass) would be sufficient to cool my jeep's transmission being a heavy vehicle that sometimes tows a little trailer. Just thinking about it being good to reduce load on the engine cooling, as well as cleaning **** up under the truck.

Don't get a champion radiator. I went through 2 in 6 months before I gave up on them

Anyone interested in exploring around Overton? I haven't been out there since I can remember and I'm trying to scout out some bird hunting spots.

$6200 and it may be in mexicali... I left that off on purpose though... It's on a facebook offroad classified group. Scroll down here, you should find it, assuming you're on fb and can view it.
