Well i upgraded mine to a bigger one and when i removed it all i did was un hook the lines from it and let them drain into a small jug along with the trans cooler so i knew how much trans fluid i lost and could put that much more back in. Its pretty easy. When i installed my IC i re routed my trans lines to go under the front frame and come up so the trans cooler sits on the outside of my IC. Never have high temps in the trans so im guessing its working for me lol. I would go take a picture for you but its dark out.

Hope this kinda helps

My stock trans cooler was only bolted to the center pole that connected to the hood latch and to the metal on the side of the radiatior and it was all just simple screws that i unscrewed. Im not sure if your is different. after the intercooler goes in your have to hook it up different cause having the intercooler makes your get rid of the center pole that connets to the hood latch.

Here is a write up on installing a intercooler..im not sure if it helps Tims I/C Page example

I have one on a trans cooler install ill look for it for you.

i didnt mount mine with the studs, my cooler came with metal straps attached to the back that swiveled. i used those, and put self tapping metal screws to hold it up near the hood latch. i hope that made sense... if not, i will get pics tomorrow when it is light out

Its okay..i was there at one point too. Yes it mounted to 4 studs. Your best bet is to re route the lines. If your look under your truck there is a frame bar that goes across the front of the truck. your can pull the lines down from were they are now and run them under that bar and up around the front again and it makes more room for the intercooler to go in cause the lines get in the way of were the pipe connects to the cooler. i tried to take a pic but its way to dark. Ill try to draw your up a picture lol.

I hope im making sense.
