I have been reading that most folks here use the Hayden brand trans coolers, but the misses got me a perma cool1013 for X-mas which I have not yet installed...I was just curious what the differences are, is one better than the other, and will this sucker fit in front of the radiator? it looks to be about 15"x8" by 1" thick...

thanks in advance for any input.

that one is not a stacked plate type butthe tube nad fin type. stacked plate types better. If you cna exchange it for a stacked plate type IMO you'd be better off.

IYO..do you think it would be better than the stock non TRD, OEM cooler that comes on a truck with a towing pkg? The price has temped me to look into them as well....

It is real hard to overcool ATF, so the more surface area the better. And, if you are towing, one of the synthetic ATFs and and a cooler is cheap insurance. The stack plate type is reportedly more effective than the tube and fine type and rumor has it that hayden makes the TRD ATF cooler which has it's own mounting hardware. I think you will find the experience from this board is that the largest Hayden stack plate cooler you can fit, the better. From personal experience with the Hayden, go find yourself some 3/8 ATF hose for the installation, the 11/32 that ships with the Hayden is a knuckle buster!
