Aux Transmission Cooler

I want to have a transmission cooler put on my XJ. Are there any kits that I should look at or will something more generic work?

Is there any way to avoid putting the radiator directly in front of the AC condenser? I'd kind of like to have it mounted underneath with a switch operated DC fan.

Basically I'm looking for some general information so that I can have someone start on this project.

I don't have much time now, but I will chime in quickly right now to say that some mount it in an area below the rad behindish the bumper where there's still air flow so that it doesn't compete with the rad and AC. When I get mine, I'll likely mount it similarly.

I got a generic one (Two actually) and put them infront of the standard radiators. I get that it's a little less efficient that way, but it still works well and that keeps the assembly away from the rocks.

Some info on what I did at When I replaced the front clip, I made mounting brackets for it instead of tying it to the condenser.
My build thread has pics again.
