Coolant Filter Mounting

Want to buy the Sinister coolant filter for my 05 and was wondering if there is anywhere else I can mount the filter besides where the instructions say. I have the wiring module for my plow mounted there and it's pretty much the only good spot to have it in.

Mount it anywhere you have the room. I've seen guys mount them on the frame, on the back side of a winch type bumper, heck I have a buddy that mounted in front of his rad

I think that Sinister offers a frame mount with longer hoses. Be sure you get the valves if you frame mount or you will dump gallons during a filter change.

It may be easier to relocate your plow wiring since it likely won't need regular access. My. 02.

I mounted one on a buddys truck almost right next to the external trans filter, just ran a longer line and made a custom mount, its pretty much hidden unless you follow the lines. But like stated above make sure you have ball valves or your going to be re-filling some coolant after each filter change.
