    About two weeks ago I made my AC condenser into a tranny cooler. I think that I had read it in a 4x4 mag sometime ago anyway. With the new 700r in it was about time to put in a cooler and with the AC long gone. So one sunday I got a wild hair and went to work I ran the hose from the tranny to the cooler in to the rad then back to the tranny. Is it Big oh yea it's BIG I'll have to put in a temp gauge to see if I'm cooling it to much but so far it works Just fine.
