Transmission Cooler and Guage

What is the best Transmission Cooler for my 2006 Jeep Wrangler X TJ? Where do I get the Temperature Gauge for it?

Derale 20561 is what I want to do and have read it is real good.
I bought the B&M 82012 and welded a bung into my trans pan.

I went to the junkyard and found the biggest tranny cooler I could find. It came off an 80s something GM 1-ton truck. Cleaned it and hooked it up. I used the B&M trans gauge kit and hooked the thermostat in the return line to the tranny. Works great.

Just had a PSC trans cooler and mount put in today. It has a spot for the power steering cooler for in the future when I am ready.

Wouldn't it be better to have the thermostat in the line going out of the tranny so you could see what the oil temp in the tranny actually is? Cause in the return line, don't you see the cooled oil before it gets back in the tranny? Forgive me if I am misinterpreting. I've been reading up on these aux tranny coolers, trying to fully understand them and their use. Thanks!
