That's what those are right?

The small one is oil. The big one is trans. Then obviously the radiator behind it all.

I believe the small one is the optional factory auxillay tranny oil cooler, then a/c condensor, then the radiator.......no engine oil cooler.

I'm planning on getting a new b&m stacker plate cooler to replace the factory one. To me I feel like the factory one isn't all that large enough to really cool the fluid that much. While i'm there i'll probably turn it into a power steering fluid cooler just because I can.

Should be able to follow the lines to it and figure out what its for.

But for sure the big one in front of the radiator is AC.

Little one I don't know.

The small auxiliary tranny fluid cooler in front of the a/c condenser is part of the factory "tow pkg". The PO could have snatched it from a donor XJ and installed it. Not many XJs have the factory auxiliary tranny cooler so most folks that add a auxiliary cooler install a larger (than factory) auxiliary cooler.

Ya that's what iam going todo. Their is no tow pack unless they took it off. Not sure. I thought it was a oil cooler. I will follow the lines to double check. Does anyone run a oil cooler?

Most people go with the 70268 one. When I get around to it, that'll be the one I purchase.

My pic above is a B&M 70264. It's a 1.75" thick core vs .75" core......thicker core means smaller foot print with more cooling capacity.
