    I have a 08 DC SR5 with Towing package. The sticker says it has a transmission cooler and a supplemental oil cooler. I have looked for both and found the transmission cooler mounted infront of the ac rad. , but where is the oil cooler mounted?

    You are correct, the transmission cooler is in front of the radiator.

    The Oil cooler on the other had, is located just below the oil filter on the drivers side. You will notice two coolant lines running from the engine to the oil cooler unit. It's not a very big unit size wise, but effective none-the-less.

    I suck at pictures, so I'll try this. here is a diagram from the FSM the oil filter actually screws right onto the oil cooler itself (Black Arrow). the coolant lines run from the waterpump through the cooler and back to the intale manifold.

    Where did you get this picture? does it have sizes? Aftermarket?

    thanks
    Need an aftermarket oil cooler, have Trany cooler. The standard aftermarket oil cooler adapters, that fit below the oil filter don't look like they will fit the odd shape....

    thanks
