    I’m also under warranty (and 3rd party lifetime warranty...came with it :notsure:), but would love to add this to my truck to pull a TT on the weekends if I can get away with it.

    Same. Ask whoever the service manager is at whatever dealership you use. Heard some say no. Mine said yaaaasssss. Just like that.

    Thanks for the feedback. It really helps others without a monitor and I tow in this same area. Also helps confirm my decision to tow in S4.

    I drive my car, lol. One year, 6k miles.

    I just heard from my dealer that they will install the cooler with the kit from this thread for me. That way I know my Warranty will be ok. They also didn’t know Toyota removed the cooler. It wouldn’t surprise me if it isn’t a new dealer add on.

    I just recieved an update from Roman. Thermostats across the U.S. and Canada are on back order from Toyota. Toyota has given an ETA of 18-Sep for when Roman will recieve the thermostats to ship to me. I have also contacted the UAE and they are currently on back order as well. If any of you would like me to refund your order due to this wait please let me know. Sorry for the wait.

    It is what it is. That’s for keeping us updated. My 19 might be out of warranty by the time the kit shows up anyway so maybe I’ll just do the install myself.

    It's nice to see that you're keeping everyone in the loop. That's something big companies always seem to forget about.

    I talked to a dealer here in California as well. They are confirming a national back order on the thermostats.

    That sucks, I’m still interested though.
    Also, I believe @Roman is at my local dealership...maybe I have a chance to get this done under warranty after all :bananadance:

    For all those concerned about the warranty issues from a cooler install: Honestly, I think the transmission is built well enough that even if you didn't have a cooler it would likely survive the warranty period with all but the absolute harshest abuse and neglect. That treatment would be reason enough to deny a warranty claim as well. With the transmission being robust enough to handle normal to moderate use anyway, you aren't going to negatively impact it with the addition of a cooler. Putting it on is only going to improve your longevity; which will, again, make your transmission last beyond warranty before having issues if you are using it for tasks beyond daily driver duties.

    I just can't see a real downside to the cooler addition unless you live in a truly cold climate most of the year and have to worry about over cooling. Not sure what kind of place that'd be, but this is just my $.02 at 3 in the morning anyway.

    Even in a cold climate the thermostat controls the opening and it still warms up. Coldest I’ve had my truck was -15F or so, but I’m sure there are some on here from northern Canada that drive ones with the cooler in colder temps. Mines always reached operating temp after awhile. I think unless you are in a Antarctica in winter, the cooler won’t affect anything. Just don’t pin the thermostat open.

    I’d be inclined to agree with you, but I got a lifetime powertrain that I’m hoping to keep intact.

    For anyone interested in a Tune for their truck get OvTune. I am very impressed with the direct shift/gear lock feature. Not only that, the truck shifts way better in "d" and gets rid of the sluggishness of the stock tune.

    His blog post above explains what's included in the tune. The "kit" he sales will come with the obd2 cable you will need to load tunes with. There is also instructions on his website for everything. Going into "s" mode will lock the converter as well as give you full control of the gears to shift when you'd like.

    Good news everyone. Thermostats have been shipped my way and I'm expecting them on 8-Sep. Expect your invoices to be updated for your kit on 8-Sep and shipped the next day.

    Took my trailer bout 2hrs away this weekend. Temps stayed at 185 in pan with a slight increase up to 190-195 and then it would slide back down to 185. My driveway is super steep and I have to turn around and back up a hundred yards or so. It got up to 215 when I backed up this time but I was getting up to 250-270 before so I am super happy with the results.

    I’ve read a lot of posts over the years about these trucks overheating when towing (pushing) in reverse. Not sure if it’s a tundra thing or if other trucks do it too.

    UPS may have lost my shipment of brackets. I ordered more brackets however, they won't arrive until the week of the 21st. They may very well turn up but UPS has been reporting "severe weather delay" for the past 4 days.

    Aux trans cooler problem solved. Traded the Tundra in for a 2020 Silverado 2500HD, 6.6L gasser. Towed my 8k lbs 5th wheel and the trans temp never went over 198 degrees and the outside temp was 96 degrees. So long Tundras.com have a great Labor Day, Stay Safe. Ohh and I got 12mpg, which is about what I was getting with the Tundra towing a 4K lbs TT.

    If you consider crappy wax coated frames resulting in premature frame rust , poorly designed variable displacement engine oil pumps failing , cheap quality interior materials. Direct injection issues , engine oil cooler /transmission cooler lines constantly leaking pretty reliable ....... Then yes I'd say definitely a gm truck was a great choice .... The service dept will love that guy ..
