So I'm not paid off anymore. New 2011 Laramie 2500 4X4 Crew with the HO CTD. I guess my towing troubles are solved.

This is where I got the information on the tranny cooler. It's a little more money than the aftermarket but all the brackets are there and it plugs right in to the existing fittings. No cutting and clamping. The only special tool is a $6 transmission line remover. Oh and pick up a couple of speed nuts for the top two radiator brakets. The whole job to 30 minutes and I'm no skilled mechanic.

Firestone Riderite air bags helped a bit.

The tires are 305/50 20 E range Rocky Mountain ATS from Discount tire. Nice agressive tread for the snow but not noisey like some of the others.
