Years ago I had a rock crawler made of multiple parts from multiple manufacturers. I was having a problem keeping my trans cooled with a standard sized external cooler. Sitting in the back 40 was a 72 Blazer that had factory A/C. I took the A/C condenser off and fitted it in front of the radiator on the crawler, just like it was getting A/C. Instead, I ran the tranny cooler lines to it. It added a significant amount of additional fluid and cooling capacity to the system. I never had a problem with my trans temps going over 190 after that. I think it would be quite easy to add that large of a cooler with it's own shroud and fan and never have a cooling problem again. There are so many different shapes and sizes of condensers you should be able to find something that is a perfect fit to whatever spot you want to mount it. They are also built to handle several hundred psi more than your trans should ever produce.
