Has anyone added an auxilary cooler? Did you use a kit? Mine has only the cooler in the radiator and I want to add one. My temps aren't terrible ( 190-210)but I'd like to lower them anyway. I have seen as high as 230 pulling the Jeep up some very steep mountain roads. Thanks.

Absolutely. We use a smaller one we bought from autozone to keep things cooler. It's especially good in the summer going up mountain grades.
4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
My Kodiak came from factory with the auxiliary transmission cooler.

The temperatures you are getting are about what mine has read in the mountains.
When I had my class A I installed a trans cooler and fan. I had the fan on a switch so I could control it. Mainly had the fan on in hot weather and sitting in traffic. Number 1 trans failures are from fluid overheating.
I forgot to mention. The Allison transmission can run hot if over filled. When trans oil is warm (above 165 degrees) check dip stick. The fluid level should be at the bottom to just above the bottom line of the "hot" marks on the stick.
Not real sure. When the oil level is to high it starts to foam. Then will not cool properly. Very common fix over on DP. The Kodiak transmission is the same as pickups. Except Kodiak's have a deeper pan and different internal filter for the added depth of pan.
