Trans cooler for 2.7 // needed ??

I have a 2012 PreRunner 2.7 AUTO. I have a dealer installed 4 pin wiring/ and Reese hitch. The manual states that I can tow 3500 lbs as it sits. Checking forums I see most say I need a TRANS COOLER to tow. The Dealership and manual says NO. I know it can't hurt/ but will it help ??

I am looking to tow a Kendon MC trailer (wt <400 lbs) and my Harley Ultra (wt<1000 lbs) even if I tow 2 bikes I will still be 1000 lbs under the max 3500 wt.

My question, if towing with a 2.7 are you with or without a trans cooler ??

BTW: I am not cheap, since buying the truck last week I put into it over $4000 in extras. I just hate cutting lines and adding in new ones. I am planing a road trip from Florida to Strugis pulling the bike and I don't want to deal with any leaking lines.

Thanks JIM
