    As you might know, I live in the netherlands. The only brand I can get here for transmission coolers is Hayden. Witch of them would you recomend for cooling a TH700R4 running 35"s on 4.11 through a NP208.

    Thanks in advance.

    rule of thumb on cooling fans and extra radiators(oil, tranny...) is get the biggest your wallet will allow, we stcok hayden at work, great product.

    Should I go for a "Tube and Fin Type Trans cooler" or a "Plate and Fin Type Trans Cooler"? What ever the difference is anyway.

    tube vs plate.
    all they did was flatten the tube out, same amount of cooling area if ya ask me.

    IMO the stacked plate is tougher. It is easier to secure and the fins will not bend as easily as the tube and fin type.

    I have the largest hayden stacked plate they make. Works well.

    It looks like you have the same setup as me. I just went to the store and bought the biggest cooler they had. They tried to sell me one "rated" for my vehicle, but it looked kind of small. I kept saying "no, bigger..." until they brought out the biggest one. They list the application as "Motor home towing another vehicle". I figured that must be the right one. It is from Hayden and is tube-and-fin.

    I see no reason not to go with Hayden. Their coolers seem to be as good as anyone's. Stacked plate is generally considered more effective for the same size cooler.
