coolant filter vs. oil bypass or both

I am thinking of pulling my coolant filter and putting a oil bypass in its place. I would keep the coolant filter but with my bpd oil cooler I don't know of another good spot to put the oil bypass filter. I have seen some behind the front grill but I have a brush guard and it would be a pain to change my filter each time. What do you fellas think? Switch the coolant filter with a oil bypass since I have a bpd oil cooler and ec-1 rated coolant? Or, figure out a way to do both?
By the way what type of oil should I used in 100 degree Texas summer? I am running the rotella t5 10w30 right now, should I go to the rotella 15w40?

Run your oil bypass filter along the frame rail.

Thanks for the replies. I was a little worried about it being so exposed but I think its the best way to go. I was hoping someone would say you don't need that coolant filter anymore with the bpd oil cooler. oh well, Thanks again

Sand in the coolant is still hard on the water pump. If you got a filter, keep it. There are other items mounted to your frame rail that don't get beat up so your oil filter should be OK.

I've seen a pic on here where someone made an angle bracket from the alternator bolts to support the bypass oil filter. It looked pretty tight in that area, but it did fit.

I decided to call Bulletproof diesel and ask what they could do since I have there oil cooler. They have a bypass that mounts on the passenger said behind the bumper inside the wheel well. And I believe it is cover with a rock guard just like the oil filter with the cooler on the driver side. $300 but I love there cooler and I feel it is worth the money.
