Transmission Power Steering Cooler

I already had a trans cooler but I had it mounted under the jeep and I thought tucked away but it still got damaged. So I made a new mount and relocated it and added a power steering cooler option. I'm not really good at write ups so I'll let the pictures speak and I'll ask any questions.

That's quite a creative mounting option. Nice work

Tell us more about the tubing and fittings. Which cooler is that?

Why did you mount it behind the radiator you need to mount these in front of the radiator to be effective.

I dont think that you will get much cooling from it where it is located.

Also you might need a brace on the top so it does not move back and forth on the cantilever mounting you made. If it goes into resonance it could bust off then you would be unhappy.

It will get plenty of air movement, I would rather the aux cooler to be less efficient and not add any more heat the the radiator. I had my other one mounted under the jeep close to the exhaust and it worked great. They sell frame rail models that see very little air movement.

I'm not afraid to try different things to see how well they work or if they are a complete failure. You never know what the outcome will be and at least the effort was made if it doesn't work and if it does work then I have helped other find new solutions.

I understand what you are saying about vibration breaking the small area that I welded that's why I added the two small braces to hopefully prevent that. I have tried "springing" it to see what happens (I know that's different) but the mount hardly moves.

Thanks for the concerns most people dont want to speak up.

good work. How difficult was it to get to the PS hoses? did you have to remove anything other then the washer fluid reservoir to get to it?

Where did you get that awesome shop hours sign?!

The PS hoses are easy to get to, you can either go from the top or remove your inner fender liner and go from the side

I'm not sure where the sign came from my kids bought it for me for Christmas one year.

I used a 1/2npt to -6an adapter on the upper fitting on the tranny
I have a extra one, I'll PM you.
