Can you post some pics of the packaging once you have some units in stock?

It could be the best-engineered radiator on the market, but if it looks like it can easily get damaged in shipping then Iíll just get an OEM one from the dealership (so I can look it over first).

Also, on top of that every trophy truck or any performance vehicle I know of that uses and automatic transmission does not have a radiator trans cooler combo so ill take the "risk" I guess
i installed a B&M kit on my 3rd gen on 1/21 and i havent noticed any sort of difference thus far. my truck still heats up like normal (just watching the water temp gauge). in order to truly see the benefits of an external cooler on your trans you should have a trans temp gauge installed before you install the external cooler so you get a baseline for what driving is like in the stock setup (under various conditions). install the cooler and note the differences in temperature.

it snows where i live, but there hasnt been a whole lot of rain/snow where im at this year. We are still hitting freezing temps, but ive really been after some snow to see how it performs in that particular environment. i can say the external cooler is hot to the touch when im out driving in 30-34 degree-ish weather and everything is warmed up; so its doing its job. no odd shifting. where i go play in the snow, there is a lot of starting and stopping, so i have zero reason to believe the trans wont hit operating temps in the snow (unless you put a giant cooler on it, live where its insanely cold, etc.).

its not really fair to compare external coolers from our rigs to trophy trucks. im sure the coolers used on trophy trucks are much thicker or larger (and cooling a much hotter trans that is undoubtedly getting beat on harder than ours). they're also external so the team can place it in a location in which they can get to it much faster so they can wrench on it if need be in a very quickly timely manner. the main reason the majority of 3rd gen owners do the cooler is to avoid a potential trans failure (pink milkshake), the added cooling is just a plus (of course, some are exempt from this general blanket, like heavy towers).
