Default Second radiator?

Can I install a second radiator behind the cab? I see what looks like a second radiator with fans on the back of some race trucks and I am thinking of doing it to mine if possible. I don't do the work myself but I am responsible for all of the planning and set up then the mechanic does the fun stuff so if it's something that can be done and if it's not completely stupid etc. I'd love any advice on the subject.

On competition vehicles that is the primary radiator in the bed, usually to accommodate a removable front clip to create a really accessible workspace.

I don't know that's why I'm asking. just curious if it was ever needed but it was answered up there, turns out it's the main radiator just in the back for easier engine work.

The cooling systems on the 6.0 are actually pretty impressive. Which is why so many go so long with a busted water pump without ever knowing.

I'd worry about addressing the oil cooler or at least keeping an eye on that over the coolant system itself.
