So that's what that extra piece of metal is under the hood. I was curious to what that was. My '06 SLT doesn't have a hitch on it, but it was a fleet vehicle before I bought it so they probably took it off. I don't do a lot of pulling, more hauling, so I don't have much of a need for a hitch. Tell me more about this additional oil cooler. What are the benefits of it if I'm doing moderate to heavy hauling?
