tranny cooler

I have a relitive with a 2004 2500 chevy truck with the 6.0 liter. It gets warm while pulling a 10,000# trailer. I looked for his tranny cooler up front. It a punie little cooler. I go WTF is this thing here, its not enough to cool the tranny. Does anyone reccomend a after market cooler we can put on there.

I'm turnin' 46s with 5.13 gears and my tranny was gettin hot. I put on one of the medium sized coolers and it made a huge diference. I also threw on Derale's custom tranny pan with cooling tubes.

even the smallest B&M tranny cooler is better than the stock GM cooler. Summit has them for like 40 bucks and it is twice as big as the the one the truck came with.
