I hooked up with my ISP this weekend and we got my web site to where it displays all the pictures now. Spearco's installation instructions leave something to be desired here is how I did it.

I was wondering how tough the cooler is? I was thinking of installing one when i build my truck but looks like a good spot to jab a corn stalk up or pack full of mud. you did a good job on in stalling it though

I don't think a corn stalk would do it in, its pretty robust maybe bend the fins a mite but "tubes" would bear up okay, something more solid could cause a problem, mud has not been a problem so far for me, I've been in some gumbo Alabama mud it washes out okay. If I was going to off road I'd weld me some pins to the frame and put me on a removeable "armor plate" across the cooler held in place by some hitch pins I could easy on or off it as needed. Slow speed not much help from the IC, need about 10 mph airflow across it to see temp reduction of turbo outlet to engine.

Farmer here are some close ups of the IC it has been installed since April this year has not been debugged or de-mudded other than a hose wash down, tubes are square tubes either side of the fins.

Nice job on the install Tim!





What Tim has done here, is basically mount a cooler designed for a 2500-3500 8 lug truck on a 1500 (similar to 2500LD) 6 lug truck.





Not an easy feat to say the least.





That cooler is MUCH tougher than most people give credit...

I agree. To bad I don't have one. I have a Fisher plow that goes where the cooler would mount. I don't like the location but the alternative is costly. While we are talking about it. I have a D-max cooler to install, had to buy new thanks Hoot, and I think it will fit If I can relocate the trans and oil coolers to under the bed. They make remote coolers with electric fans on them that they say will work in a truck if it's vented. Think it will work?

Joey I have a remote mounted Deraile elec fan trans cooler on the cross member under the bed that does a good job of keeping trans cool, it can be mounted as either a pusher or a puller, should work for engine oil. If you havent done so you might want to think about a dual filt bypass set up that would give and extra qt of oil to be heated up. You may want to PM Chris 4x4 and get some info on his cross flow Cummins IC he is almost finished with installing.
