Trans Cooler Relocation?

Anyone know of a good spot to move the tranny cooler to? I've got a few ideas, but not quite sure yet. All input appreciated...

Stock cooler? where are they stock? best place is right in front of the radiator or directly behind it so it can get PLNTY of air.

Isn't the trans cooler (for automatics) a part of the radiator?

If not you can move it wherever you can get airflow, or stick a good e-fan on it. Remember automatics die quickly if overheating.

thanks for the input guys....stockers are usually located in front of the radiator. I'm thinking of moving it so i can mount some lights behind the grill...i was thinking behind the radiator myself if i can make it fit without too much trouble. If not i'll probably fab up some brackets to hang it in front the radiator....

autos with the towing package come with an transmission cooler
why the move - planning on putting something else in it's place?
for 2004+ models it was moved to the front of the radiator passenger side towards the bottom
keep it in the air stream, higher up if you off road

My cooler is also located in the exact same spot you described Neil...so perhaps it was an earlier move to that spot. However I second the "why move it" because it seems to be in a good spot now and gets a decent amount of protection by the bumper.
