alternate location for oil bypass filters?

I ordered an dual filter oil bypass setup from Amsoil, and it seems to be that it's intended to mount behind the front wheel on the outside of the frame, kind of below the door hinge area.

I don't like that location, the filter seem vulnerable there. I don't do a whole lot of offroading in the truck (that's what the jeeps are for!!) but I do take it on mild trails every now and then.

Is there a limit to how far away you can mount the filters? Seems like somewhere under the bed of the truck towards the rear, might be a safer, roomier location, would running the oil lines that far be a problem, assuming they are tucked up and out of the way? Oil pressure sufficient to run that far?

I'd opt to keep it closer because of oil pressure but I don't think you'd have too much of a problem since the filter samples the flow.

My personal concerns with running lines to the rear would be the (what can go wrong, will go wrong) risk of any debris potentially damaging the lines unless you bullet proof everything (in the frame rail, some kind of wire loom/durable cover).

Have you considered running it horizontally?

I would just make a shield for the Amsoil

I would just leave it in the box on a shelf in the garage. Don't put it on the truck at all. Nothing can go wrong if it isn't installed.

The unit I have has both filter (main filter, and bypass filter) in one bracket, so flipping it sideways wouldn't really gain much.

I wouldn't feel bad about running the lines all the way to the back, I think getting them inside the C frame wouldn't be difficult.

I thought about that, but seems like it would be simpler just to move it elsewhere that doesn't require a shield.

Noted. I'd really like to extend the time in between oil changes though. I drive roughly 100 miles a day, and 14 quarts of oil every month or two adds up.

Take a look at my pics, I had a bracket fabricated and it worked great!, let me see if I can add it here, if not is on my page It was measured to fit inside the frame rails basically boxing the section. Bolted from the bottom. I had it made to where it was a bit wedged in, been installed over 10 years and no problems.
