Transmission cooler on 07 WK

Anybody have any ideas on how I can add an auxillary transmission cooler to a 2007 WK? I am looking at getting a camper and I thing I am gonna need the extra cooling for the transmission. Also, my WK did not come with a towing package so I installed the factory hitch and trim bezel to get me through. Anybody know what else came with the factory tow package? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

I'm not sure about adding a tranny cooler- but I wouldn't think it would be too hard. Factory tow packages varied by engine size- check out this link:

Sure..raining here like usual (Fl), when it stops I'll snap a few. I'm guessing it's a trans cooler.I suppose it could be an oil cooler but I find that a bit odd. I'll actually look at it and follow the lines to be certain.

this picture shows where i installed my aux tranny cooler. it is placed between the stock tranny cooler that is integrated with the a/c condenser, and the long skinny power steering cooler. i have it plumbed so that the fluid flows first to the stock cooler, and than to the auxiliary cooler.

You weren't kidding!

BTW, what auxiliary trans cooler did you use, and where did you get it? Also, how hard was the install?

There are multipe sizes of coolers available at most auto parts stores. Fairly easy to install, once you find a spot to mount it. The more/cooler the air flow it gets the better but put a big one in front of your rad/condenser and you could have other problems due to air flow.

If this is only for "backup" consider going with one of the smaller units - the ones like mini rads ( fins ) do a better job. Before going with the smaller unit be sure you have the stock cooler, it should be at either the top or bottom of the condenser.
