Transmission cooler install with AC

I have an '87 YJ with AT and AC. I want to install a transmission cooler for low speed wheeling, but the AC coil doesn't leave much room in front of the radiator. Does anyone have suggestions for alternative mounting? Please include pictures if possible. Thanks.

You could always get a cooler that has a small electric fan attached to it, then mount it somewhere that I can pull its own supply of cool air. Like mount it near the bottom of the radiator facing down so it pulls air up from the underside of the jeep, just a thought. This is what I was going to do when I got my cooler for the TF999.

I am not sure if this is helpful or not, but this is where I put my cooler for you hydro assist steering. I used a tranny cooler.

I'm in the same boat. I snagged a tranny cooler off a E-250 Ford van that got the interior gutted in a fire. It's a decent sized cooler. I may just remove the 4 bolts holding the rad and condenser in and slid it in frt of the A/C condenser. Hmmm.. maybe Sunday! I'll post up pics if I do.

I put my trans cooler between the grill and the condenser, I have the Auto and A/C in my '94:



Kind of a bad pic, but it's really the only one I have of the front end.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to do some experimenting, and I'll post pics when I get something that works.
