Were to put tranny cooler with Ripp sc. ?

Im installing a ripp supercharger and need to relocate my b&m tranny cooler. Anyone put one in a dandy spot that it still does its job of cooling well?

Off Road Warehouse makes a kit that mounts off of the tubular crossmember behind the radiator. The kit is kinda pricey for a cooler. It would be easy to make some brackets to replicate the idea. Not sure on the cooling efficiency.

Ripp has a cooler kit as well that sets it up to be able to use a PS cooler and Trans cooler so you can run the intercooler. Try talking to them.

Some of our customers have been mounting to the lower radiator support with great success, there are a few threads here discussing it.

I did this but rather than weld it to the crossmember i made a clamp system that bolts it on should i ever want to remove it...... and yes its still there...

Trany cooler:

Made mine out of aluminium strap. Heated it with torch and bent it in a vice with some angle iron. Used some welding rod as a model for the bends. 2" clamps to hold it to the round cross member.




PS cooler on the bottom for now, see how it goes. There is plenty of room on the two straps behind the rad fan if this doesn't work. When I get my tune and get her running I will flex it out to check the drag link for rub issues on the PS cooler at full Pass stuff.

If you trim the back ridges of the grill shell, you can slide the Intercooler forward enough to keep it between it and the radiator.





Or if you use this style you can make a simple bracket and it puts in in the airflow path at the backside of the fan. I did this for a PS cooler.
