On our trucks, there are no oil cooler lines to tap into to add an additional cooler. Otherwise, yes, that would be the way to go.

That and a lot of thought has gone into why I'm doing it this way. Ultimately it boils down to if I have an issue with any part of this system I can shut it down and not effect my truck. I can go so far as removing lines, cap the bungs on the pan, and go on about my business like its not there.

Using the adapter plate method means if any part fails (yes, VERY slim chance, but shit happens), the engine is out of commission till it's fixed.

Who knows, this might be an experiment in failure though.

Nope. Just got my HD bumper and headllight fillers painted. Needed those done and mounted before I know where to hand the cooler. Need a weekend to swap those and I'm out of town this weekend. So you're likely looking at next weekend before I can get going on it again.

Bumper is installed (see pics in The HD bumper thread)

I'm trying to source a factory lower pan in so I can drill/tap it outside the vehicle and have zero risk if I screw it up.
