    Does the 02 GC come with a factory installed tranny cooler? I've looked
    under the hood at the setup on this vehicle and there is a separate
    tranny cooler hooked directly into the transmission. The hoses are not
    connected to the radiator. All the mounts for the tranny cooler look
    like a factory install. Is this cooler enough or do I need to add an
    additional cooler? I'm looking at towing a pop-up at around 2200lbs
    loaded. The existing cooler is sandwiched between the condensor and the

    Sounds like you have a factory or dealer installed trans cooler. They
    do offer a "towing package" that includes the cooler, hitch, and
    connectors for the trailor.

    I would think that cooler be adequate for towing. Just follow the
    directions in the owner's manual for tougue and overall weight. It may
    also have recommendations for trailer brakes depending on the weight.

    I know it didn't come with the factory towing package. The only
    component I'm concerned about is the tranny at this point.

    - thanks
