Jack oil isn't referred to as fluid, and it's hydraulic oil.



I couldn't care less what you call it. You are the one that started off denying it was a cooler, and it should be called a heat...

Where did I say it only cools? Quote me. I've stated that it heats and cools, and that it's a heat exchanger over and over. You should probably go back and read.

The terms "cooler" or "heater" are more specific than "heat exchanger", because the use of those terms further illustrates which way the heat is normally travelling.


By following your logic,...

They were probably just worn out. The Bilsteins have more aggressive valving and control the stiffer HD leaves better than even new stock replacements, IMO. Because of the angle of the rear shocks...

Those front ones are stock. They press into the end of the metal tube that extends down through the coils.

That rear one is an extended stop. The stock bumpstops are about 3-3.5" long.

In your climate, I would re-iterate TRCM's suggestion to get a cooler with a thermal bypass valve. You don't want to over cool your fluid in those cold temperatures.


I don't have one, and even...

No pitfalls. I recommend you put it at least partially in front of the mechanical fan so that there's some air flowing through it 100% of the time the engine is running, even when you're stopped.

An air conditioner is a heat exchanger, as is a refrigerator, a radiator, or even a heater. You can't cool anything without an exchange of heat. Calling a fluid to fluid heat exchanger like the...

At full operating temperature, the coolant temperature in the "cool" side of the radiator where the heat exchanger is, most of the time is cooler than the transmission fluid is. I've taken IR...

Yes I would check/replace the u-joints. They have "worn-in" at the old angles after so many miles and replacing them will likely take care of at least some of your vibes.

I'm not sure that the flow through the cooler will be much different depending on routing. That would depend on how much restriction to flow there is in the cooler, but filling it from bottom to top...

Typical aftermarket group size 34 batteries are 800 CCA. That is plenty.

^ What he said. Don't bypass the stock heat exchanger. It's actually pretty efficient at cooling.

I'm not sure I would "upgrade" to a plastic-bladed fan in a mud truck. If the blades flex enough when you hit a deep water/mud hole and the clutch is fully engaged, it could take out your radiator.

Well, if they mean that it doesn't go bad in the same way, they would be right. However, it goes bad much more quickly these days than it used to, at least if it contains ethanol and it isn't...

They're great for evening out ride height front to rear, but they really shouldn't be used as the primary means to achieve lift.

Monitoring OBD-II on my '00, it does exactly as the FSM says.

I would just go ahead and put a new fan clutch in when you put in the new shroud. There's pretty much no way that an original fan clutch is still working well.
