Re: Oh deer; Front Bumper replacement
There are only two “safe” places to put a cooler of the size you’re considering (11x11)
What is the purpose of the cooler? Is the cooler’s main purpose to cool the tranny when towing? Or is the purpose for cooling during heavy duty 4X4?
If the purpose is to use the cooler for towing, the only place to put the cooler is in front of the condenser. If the purpose is for cooling during 4X4, the best place is to add an electric fan and place it in the engine compartment. You will not have any room for the cooler and an electric fan in front of the condenser. Why is this option not recommended? Because a cooler in front of the condenser WILL NOT get enough airflow at low speeds to cool the tranny while 4X4ing.
It is always best to install a cooler before completely mounting the bumper because most aftermarket bumpers may require tranny line mods because of obstruction during install or modification for safety from exposure to sudden impact from aftermarket bumper’s lack of protection of the stock line location.
