Has anyone managed to move the coolant overflow reservoir to the other side like in the picture below? Any ideas how to get it done? Or would it cause any issue? Need that space to fit some electronics around the aux batt!

The truck in the pic is not mine, jic.

TIA 🍻

It wouldn't cause any issues to move it, just don't kink the new, longer hose.
I've seen one relocated back near the washer bottle.

Measure the spigot on the radiator/tank cap and find hose to fit. It's probably 5-6mm (1/4") but make sure it's a snug fit so it doesn't suck air under negative pressure.
If you can't easily source coolant hose, fuel hose might be more available. Fuel hose will be more expensive and more rigid. The extra rigidity will be good over the longer run to prevent it collapsing but may put extra stress on the plastic spigot of the overflow tank cap.
