Factory Oil and Tranny Cooler

I have an 08 4x4 DC 4.0L Taco that I am trying to fix up to my liking. Though I may not be towing any time soon I do like the thought on having an oil and tranny cooler, but I am not a great fan of after market stuff.

Do you folks know if the factory parts - coolers, fittings, etc are available and where?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Available... Yes.

Available at a reasonable price... NO.

an after market tranny cooler is for all intents and purposes exactly what you'd get from the dealer as well. So for that aspect just pick the biggest B&M trans cooler you can find and hook it up. The oil cooler is another matter, and realistically unless you are going to be towing up and down mountains every day in over 100 degree heat it is not really necessary, for the roughly thousand bucks it would cost you for the part and to have it installed.
