Upon closer inspection, my '83 318 W150 Prospector has a full width tranny cooler between the AC condenser and the radiator.

Looks factory to me. Can anyone confirm ?

it dosent appear that my '79 360 Trail Duster 4x4 Prospector came with a stock tranny cooler, but its entirely possible that it did and the previous owners removed it, it wouldn't suprise me...those bastards.

I just bought an 83 RC. It too has the tranny cooler as you describe. Not for long though.
My '77 W200 has one. Why would you remove a tranny cooler??

M "ProstateInspector" (as the guy`s @ my job call it) has a GIANT factory cooler, it`s almost as big as the darn radiator itself.

The cooler, along with 10 gallons of gas (to get you off of their lot) was part of the package. had a few other niceties like the badge on the back fenders with the shovel and pick.

What I always wondered was what the heck was the options.

I just swapped the tranny cooler from the 83 to the 85. It is a big sucker. About half the height of the stock radiator. Chrysler ran the tranny lines thru the cooler and then into the radiator cooler which doesn't make sense to me. Why cool it then heat it back up again?

My non prospector 86 Royal SE doesn't have it. Looks like someone put a three tube cooler, and a non cooling radiator on it some time ago. If I could find a Dodge in the junkyard without the front clip pulled off already, I'd try to find one of the big coolers.,,,,Cruisin

Why do all the Dodges get stripped so fast, they're usually an empty shell by the time I see them....:(
