Just found out some good news regarding the Uhaul install...

The cooler and installation is guaranteed for life!!! It says so on the box.

The cooler cost $81 bucks and installation was $80. Well worth it for me..

John, your transmission just sent me a PM...it really thinks that you're number one for adding the cooler. Really.
Futhermore, it...uh, wait a minute--I think I forgot to take my meds...I might should do that.
I'll get back to you later.

(You won't regret having the transmission cooler installed!)

What he was trying to say was that your transmission thanks you and will reward you with a longer service life.

Super funny, but for anyone who's wondering if a transmission is a good idea or not, check out this article. You won't think twice about it:

So as you might have gathered , a cooler is a good thing. I saw a chart on how temp effects trans fluid. I looked quick but couldn't find it. You would be shocked at how quickly ATF fails when exposed to high heat. Keep it cool-Keep it rolling
