    Finishing up new radiator install. I have one of the cooler lines between the frame rail and bottom of the radiator. Are both lines supposed to be together routed outside/in front of the radiator? Not much room, and my memory didn't take note when I pulled the old rad out.

    Pic 1 shows the line in question from the underside of the truck. Shows how it's between rail and bottom of rad.

    Pic 2 illustrates looking down from the engine bay.

    On my 95 one of those lines loops up a bit, towards the sky, and is attached to the radiator shroud with a plastic clip. I think the other is hose clamped to a pipe that routes under the headlight and and out the front then another hose to the cooler.
    look at the shroud for a clip on the driver side about half way up
    added a pic of the clip o the shroud with a line attached
    hope it helps
