No oil cooler for my Pat?

I recently purchased a 2014 Patriot Latitude 4x4 wih the 2.4L and 6 speed automatic. I currently tow my 1,500 lb fishing boat with my '05 Tahoe, but seeing as how the Tahoe has almost 150,000 miles on it I was considering the possibility of becoming a one car family in a couple years, and towing the boat with the Patriot. To my shock and surprise, I was unable to find a part number for an oil cooler. The oil coolers out there are only for the manual and the CVT. I contacted Jeep and was told there was no oil cooler available for the 6 speed. How is that possible? I'm pretty sure the tow prep package (which includes an oil cooler) is an available option with the 6 speed. Did I get wrong info from Jeep? Has anyone installed a cooler with the 6 speed?

Not yet, but it's not difficult to do.

I just posted this on another thread.....

If it were mine and I lived in the desert or anywhere temps get over 100 degrees I would install an Auxiliary Transmissions Oil Cooler. You can get a transmission cooler for under $50 and they are very, very easy to install.

Simply attach to the front of your radiator with plastic ties, then splice into the transmission cooler lines (at the fitting of course), add the recommend amount of tranny fluid and your done! No more overheating plus added PEACE OF MIND.

Thanks, but I'm looking for the oil (not transmission) cooler, which is recommended when towing over 1,000 lbs. It's available for the 5-speed manual and the CVT, but doesn't seem to be available for the 6-speed automatic... except that it is available if you get the tow prep package. So the part apparently exists, they just don't sell it separately as far as I can tell.

If the oil filter mounting specifications are the same ( and I am betting the are) there may be a sandwich type aftermarket oil cooler that will work. I do not know the specs though.

For warranty purposes I'd really like to stick with MOPAR.
