****Edit and update****

I was the dumbass. Apparently it fits just fine. Just finished install.

So. I forgot this hood needs a good slam to latch it. Yesterday I was pulling the hood down, and trying to close it last few inches by hand. It needs more ass. Totally forgot that part about this truck. My 1st Ford. Lol

It's in and is fine. Only 1 question. Quick connect on pcv side is fully seated, but more nipple can be seen versus intake side. Quick connect is engaged and can't pull off unless I depress. Appears normal.

Just installed a J & L on my ‘23 Tremor. Used the rear (closest to the firewall) for mine and everything went well. I did use nylock nuts with small washers rather than the clip nuts in the package. Seemed to work better. Good clearance is fine.

That's the spot I tried to use. Video stated the clips are for older gen. For ours to use the 10mm bolt and nylock. If I could mount it under the tray lip, guess it may clear. But there isn't enough room to center up in the holes.

Can you post a picture. Wonder if they sent me the correct mount.
 
Not a JL but where mine sits. It’s a bit higher than the battery and clears fine so seems odd. Is that a similar location or is it elsewhere?

Yeah. That's where I mocked it up. As soon as I removed it. Hood closed all way.
 
Hey. Where you find that cover for your coolant resevoir. Off subject. Lol
