Calling all trailer owners


Deck Care Pro
I am in the process of rigging my smaller ford V6 pick up for trailering. I wanted to ask if you guys or gals towing have tranny coolers on thier tow vehicles?

not only would i use

a tranny cooler but i would check out if they make a larger oil pan for the tranny and the engine.
Dont forget to check your breaks more regularly and do oil changes at 2000 miles not 3000.

Without a doubt, if your towing use a cooler for the traney. You can get a real inexpensive one from J C Whitney. Easy to install too. As for the idea of a larger oil pan, they also sell remote oil filters which can be located on the frame rail. etc, quite easily. Some will handle larger oil filters as well.

So far I've only used my trailer to haul Old Iron! ;)

We have a manual transmission in this truck so no need for a cooler.
