Radiator moving for rear

Hi, this is my second post here... the first one was the check in

I am wondering in move the radiator to the rear of the car... close to the tailgate, fixed in the cage, as I saw in lots of rockcrawlers.

My questions are:

Where the hoses will pass? Undercar? Inside? close to the driver? Is there any issue, like safety if the hoses are cut and close to the driver... so it will cause burns ?

And... Do I need to change the waterpump to deal with the long hoses?

Am I asking too much?

Ah, I have a Suzuki Samurai.

Thanks

Regis

i used 2 inch aluminizedexhast pipe that ran along the frame rails then used flexy hose to connect input and out put of both the rad. and the motor. this is on a international scout with a 350. I used the stock radiatior from a f-350 that had a 460 anf dual electric fans from a thunderbird. It never gets hot even when on the trail all day. used the stock water pump...has been running without problems for 2 years.
