Stacking coolers - oil, power steering, trans

I'd like to add the OIL and PS cooler to my setup but would would all 3 of the coolers hinder my radiator somewhat here in the desert heat?

Right now just the trans cooler is mounted in-front of the radiator(would like to add PS & oil).

Are there other locations to mount these coolers to do the job?

there is a plenty of locations to mount them. The location is determined by the load you are putting the cooler under and the physical size of it. some pics would be helpful

Tag. I want to add an Automatic tranny cooler to my A/C equipped Jeep. Condenser is already in front of the rad, so not sure what to put where.

Not much to show at this point. Just a trans cooler in-front of the radiator. Just curious if mounting in different areas will be effective or at least worth it to do if not in-front of the rad.

Thanks and pic attached that I had handy.

If it were me i would do my best to find another location for the oil cooler to keep the chance of overheating down. The small size of the PS cooler shouldnt make that big of a difference in front of the radiator. If you wanted to you can modify the top of the shroud to fit the cooler there. with the oil cooler you could mount it on the bumper in front of the grill or on the fender in the engine compartment using the small finned cooler. Or you could go with a cooler that has a fan attached to it and mount it under the body on the driver's side below the seat.

Thanks for the pics and suggestions.

Would there be an issue with mounting the OIL cooler under the passenger side seat? Since the oil filter is along the same-side, wasn't sure if there was a particular reason that it should be mounted under the drivers seat as you suggested.

Thanks!

You can also look into dual circuit coolers like Derale has.

Since I'm not mechanically inclined, I have to make sure I question everything.

glad you did! haha the only concern with it being on that side is keeping the lines up and out of the way of the t-case, drive shaft and the trans. heat/rubbing with cooler lines= bad day of wheeling and sore feet
