Don't sweat a little bit of mud.
Thank you, Leroy. Indeed, I'm not worried about a little mud. I figure the higher I place the oil cooler, the less mud it will accumulate.

My oil cooler is the same as yours, except it's a little smaller. My oil cooler is the 4"X4" version; your oil cooler is the 4"X6" version.
