Transmission cooler stock or optional on an '04 Titan?

I posted this question under another thread, but started this post to get more exposure to my question with more detail.

Being new to Titans, having just bought a 2004 LE, mine appears to have two radiators with a fan both inside and outside. Lines run from the tranny up to the radiator(s) and back to the tranny. Did the 04 come with a trans cooler as standard or an option?

I have already established that i have the 3.36 gears for towing (engine turns 2000 rpms at 70 mph), but have no tranny temp gauge. I do not have the off road package that has the 3.36 gears, as i have 18" wheels and no skid plate. I was planning to buy a tranny cooler, but looked under the hood and see the two radiators, or at least it appears to be two of them. fron beneath the truck, i can put my fingers up between the two radiator cores. Else, why would there be two fans unless there are two radiators there?

If you are right at 2k at 70MPH then you have the big tow gears. I've had both and the info you have is correct - my non-big tow that I have now runs about 1700-1800 RPM at 70mph, the big tow was right on the money at 2k RPM at 70MPH. If you've got it, that's a good thing even if you don't tow. My other Titan had a little more "oomph" off the line with the bigger gears, definitely enough to be noticeable. In fact, it was the first thing I noticed when I went from big tow to non big-tow.
