Default power steering cooler

Im new to the forum and this is the first ford i have really dealt with. It my 99 f250 7.3L psd. i took it off road and hit some solid dirt and destroyed the power steering cooler. I got it fixed for now but was wanting to see if anyone had done a relocate or what they had done to steer away from breaking this thang.

I've seen a lot of guys take the stock transmission cooler from a 1980-1996 F-150\Bronco and use it as a power steering cooler. Lemme see if I can find a pick, it's about as thick as a good book, lol.

Shouldnt be to hard. Other than finding a good solid mounting location and running new lines.

Easy enough, get a stock transmission cooler for a 80-96 truck, mount it in front of the radiator. Then run hoses to the new cooler.

thats a big one
I like the idea of the larger cooler, that fluid gets hotter than you think
make sure you have it plumbed right, and the cooled fluid is goin back to the pump on the correct side

back in the 60's & 70's Ford used a small one mounted to the pump
look below on the front of my Bike and you can see an old style, I use it as an engine oil cooler
