Hey Cody, you can mount any filter anywhere. I know guys who have mounted the coolant filter behind the front bumper and frame mount they're oil bypass. Dieselsite sells a frame mount for the coolant filter. Considering you already have sinister (such as I) I suggest mounting it to your frame rail, getting some earls fittings and braided hose and running line to and from your bypass kit. Do you have the resources to fabricate your own mounting bracket?

By doing this, access will not be an issue and your filter changes will be cake.

yes it sucks as I was trying to keep everything simple and bolt on so I didnt feel like it was another race car or buggy. Cost 3 times as much for bolt on and hurts your feeling when it doesnt work. Not sure if I'm just gonna extend the oil bypass bracket or mount in remote location. If I have the fittings and hose in shop prob remote and if not I'll throw something on the mill and make it look nice as is. This is like a big block ford in a falcon with the wells still in it. Hard to change plugs but worth it in the end!

The kit that paintingman posted is a nice kit, a bit too much bling for me. I installed this kit on two trucks. Although confined, there was adequate space to pull and reinstall the filters. I'm just not a huge fan of a congested engine bay, but installation is simple with this kit.

yes should have went that way. I got it but had to do a bunch of moving and mods. Filters are just about straight up and down which I like
