What kind of offroading are you doing? Dune jumping ?
god i wish i could! my GC unfortunately has no Lo. i screwed up when i bought it, and i have found that it would be impractical to change to the nv245. when i wheel i do run it in first gear. i really wish i had better gearing, i find that i need to take some obstacles a bit faster than i would normally want to. the last time i had the tranny overheat i was attempting to pull a rocky, steep 4wd hill. i have done it before, but this time i had my buddy with me. not sure if that had anything to do with it.
i have however decided that i BADLY need to add an auxiliary trans cooler possibly with a blower fan on it. front of the radiator is the best place i can think of for it. i would route the fluid from the tranny into the aux cooler, than into the factory radiator, than back to the tranny.
anyone else done this? and any suggestions, ideas?
