    Well I'm rounding up some parts for an upcomming weekend. So far I'm going to get an ORD steering brace, new steering stabilizer, and a transmission cooler. I'm thinking about an oil cooler but I'm not sure. I'm running an '82 with crate 350, 700R4, NP208, 3.08 10-bolt (upgrading to a 3.73 12-bolt), and 31" tires. I don't do any trail running with it, lots of paved roads, some fishing, and of course drift busting in the winter! Think I should get one while I'm at it.

    Not really, less your really want one for your satisfaction. But thats just my opinion.

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    I have a factory oil cooler on my 84 and can't honestly tell you if it really makes a big difference in oil longevity/engine protection or not. I'd imagine that there would be SOME advantage, but is it worth the extra money or trouble?
