That cooler is your PS cooler, the trans cooler will be behind the grill in front of the radiator. And yeah, youre set then with gauges, thats what I have my Edge set to monitor.

Sorry i sound dumb but I don't know much about them. So there is a wire that runs to the back of your truck? And then a box in your cab? Explain it to me cuz I'm used to towing with my dads 350 which already has one and we just switch trucks for the day or whatever but I'm sick of always asking him to us his truck

That aluminum trailer will save your *** on weight! Good call!
