Good day all,
Looking throughout the forums, I see a lot of information about transmission coolers for the 5.7 engine, but not for the 4.7. I have the standard transmission cooler, and was wondering if anyone knew the part number for the HD cooler some came with. I'd like to go to a larger one (because more cooling is good) and am hoping someone has dealt with either the OEM HD version, or a reliable aftermarket one. Thanks!

Same transmission, i.e. uses the same cooler(s). Question is, do you need it? Do you do alot of heavy towing or do you have significant power upgrades?

I'm planning on getting a smaller trailer (don't want to run near max) in the future, and figure if it wont hurt, it may be a good idea to do.

If it's a light trailer you're not gonna pull all the time then your stock one is fine. If it's a long distance every day thing, then maybe the towing package cooler (bigger but not 3500 big). You don't want the trans too cool. It isn't really good for it and if you manage to make the trans run too cold the PCM will lock out overdrive (like it does now if it's running before coming all the way up to temp).

Thanks for the help. I'll have to figure out the extra miles before I do anything.
