Ok, I've read all the posts on mounting the external oil cooler in the driver's side rear wheel well.  They all have one thing in common, the fittings all face forward.... why?

I would think that it would be a shorter run with the oil lines to turn the oil cooler with the fittings facing to the back of the vehicle.  

Any insight or thoughts?

@Quadmod-  Yeah, those brackets are sharp!  Are they .125"?  I can attest to how hard 1/8" aluminum (even 5052) is to bend- I'm just finishing up a bracket to hold a supplemental automatic transmission cooler for my FJ Cruiser (3 different mounting planes) and it's not been easy, using only simple hand tools and a small vice.  And ain't nut-serts the greatest thing?  Gotta go to work...
