You can, but it's very thin to get enough threads in it.

Have you looked on eBay for a billet cap. They aren't really too bad in price and are fine. After thanksgiving I might be able to sell you mine.

Just checked eBay and there are no cheap ones at the moment. I believe I have seen them there for as little as $40.

I am, I mounted my oil bypass kit off the alternator and the coolant kit on the frame. The coolant kit I bought from Dieselsite gives you the option on how you want to mount it. Costs a little more (more hose) but at least now my engine compartment isn't crowded...

Here's the thread I started on my install of my coolant kit.

My coolant filter is in the engine bay between the fan shroud and passenger side battery (regular location). My oil bypass filter is also on the passenger side but is behind the grille in front of the AC condenser. The hose that came with the AMSOIL kit was more than long enough to accomodate the forward position. No extra cost for either kit and my engine compartment is not crowded (with other stuff - but man they pack a lot of engine in the bay!).

Smile By-pass oil filter mounting

I mounted the housing and filter behind the grille on the right side. It fit perfectly and there was enough hose to reach that came with the kit. The grille is only held on with 4 screws so access is easy. When you look in through my grille now you can see the oil filter tucked in on the rt side. The kit from Amsoil took about an hour to install.

you wouldnt happen to have any pics of your setup would ya, i also have my coolant filter mounted in the same place u do. If the oil bypass wasnt so expensive i would be ordering it right now, is the going rate right around 300-350?

AMSOIL Oil Bypass Filter:




...and Coolant Filter:


I did dremel the backside of the grille a little to make removal a bit easier (not required for those that don't have a "zombie-ram" brush guard).
