With a fan powered unit you can really mount it anywhere you find the space and it should work fine. If you can mount it in the flow of air this will have a increased benefit. I installed the trans cooler out of the 6.0, that thing is huge!!!!! It bolts right in place of the stock unit, took less than 1 hour and my trans temps dropped 40 degrees, and I don't have the cooler in the rad! The warmest I have seen since is 170, that was in 95 ambient towing my TT (9K) up some really steep switchbacks.
Good luck.

i used an angle grinder lol............. but a dremel tool wood work great too.... i mounted it their because i waned it to get better air flow. i was gonna mount it under the truck but because im at the dunes a lot i figured it would get very dirty quickly so the grill was the best option.....

thats what I was thinking too, I am in the mud and plow and get the underside coated with mud/snow so I was thinking front is best. I am going to have to give that a try this weekend. did you use the rubber hose it came with or stainless to pipe it/?

i used rubber hose.. just tapped it in line with my stock cooler... it was very simple... hardest part honestly is getting that thing mounted so that their is enough clearance between the fan and the radiator....
