I need to find some one who's done this that has a tranny cooler. I haven't even looked at how it's mounted, but the tranny cooler needs to be relocated in order for me to put my lights behind the grill. some one help!

Steve 0113-
That is my intention, invert the mounting of the lights. However, I have the full size 6" off road lights. I didn't exactally test fit, but i know they hang down far enough that they will cover the trany cooler. Can you post pics of how yours look?

buy yourself a brushguard or a grill guard and your problem will be solved, also adds extra style and protection for your truck
