    I have 99 F250 7.3 Automatic. What all are you seeing for temps on your tranny? Last year I didn't have a temp gauge, but this year I added one. First day of plowing I saw it get up to 180 once. I felt that was pretty high. Since then I have been trying to keep it below 160. On another thread most agreed that 170 was not to high although some thought it was. I currently do not have a tranny cooler beyond what is stock on the truck, but might consider adding one. Thank you.

    I have a 2013 F350 6.7. Mine stays around 190-193 wether I'm cruising the expressway or plowing a lot.
