Default What is it?

Ok Just traded for my 2007 ranger sport 4x4 a few weeks ago. This might be a dumb question but....

I ordered 2 new ford badges 1 for the grill and one for the tailgate, I was inspecting the grill as to how to remove the badge when I noticed what seems to be a small radiator connected to the front of the main radiator.

Im guessing it might be a transmission cooler as I have heard people talk of them. My question is: is that what it is and did it come factory? or put there by previous owner. Doesn't really matter to me just curious.

Thanks ahead of time for the
Doug answer

Sounds like an automatic transmission cooler. It's probably factory, Ford put them on some trim levels.

Yep. Have one on my 02 Edge, which is the same as the newer Sport trim level.
