You certainly don't need to take the bumper off. It took me about 2 hours to swap mine.

Thanks for posting! Is $600 what I should plan on for doing the upgrade? Any other complete kits and links available other than Beans Diesel?

thanks for the link.. it worked great..

I got a used 6.0 cooler off ebay for 100 plus 20 buck shipping.. i believe its the larger size 31 row.

with the good info in the link i feel confident in doing the change out. Guess i may do a complete fluid change out at the same time. I need to get that post by mark on how to use the pump to do a change out.

have a good one

Is it worth getting the 6.0 cooler? I found one on ebay for $200 and another one in a local yard for $175. That seems pretty expensive. It seems like the yards have figured out that 7.3 guys like this cooler and raised the price on it.

Can I just get an aftermarket cooler and use it instead? How much more of a PITA is it going to be to mount, install and plumb in an aftermarket cooler? And can anyone recommend a suitable one?

i found one on ebay for $135 delivered it was off a wreck? unit., You can find to aftermarket one for about the same. putting it on will be the same difference
PITB pain in the butt.. the OEM one have mounting brackets that match.. maybe the AM ones do was well.

the biggest difference is the location of ouitlet pipes.. on the 7.3 it comes off the top but it is not as tall.. the 6.0 one the come off the bottom. there is a kit with tubing and elbows to help..

check brians transmission website it think.

I put a TruCool Max from dieselsite.com on my 1997 F Super Duty. 40-50 degree drop. Reasonably priced and fairly easy install.
