Question Aftermarket Transmission Oil Cooler

I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 that is getting the transmission rebuilt. When I dropped the pan the ATF was silver and full of metal debris. I need to replace the entire radiator as the trans cooling lines are an integrated part of the radiator and i suspect the radiator is full of debris (and i was told to get it replaced before i get the rebuilt one back). My question was, is there and aftermarket transmission oil cooler that is on the market meant for my truck? Any advice would be awesome.

And transmission cooler will work. Even the one from Advance Auto, just takes a little bit of time to install.

When you say a bit of time do you mean just getting the lines to fit for the aftermarket oil cooler? I suppose you could run some sort of extension from the oil cooler to the lines themselves and it would work that way?

That would be the route to go... however the transmission is being rebuilt as we speak and I have no way of getting the entire truck to a shop at this point.

Have you installed one yourself? I was just curious if anyone had a bought one that worked for them?

I've done them before on vehicles. They all will work for you. You just need a decent sized one since it's a truck.

Right, It also needs to clear the the gap, so it needs to fit between where the hood comes down and the radiator
