Many cars have the transponder over the side of the chassis but still inside the edge of the rock guards.

As long as it does not look like it can be hit if you get T-boned or rail slide into a pipe spike & hit it you should be good.

Best judgement is do you think a $100 electrical part would be safe where you have it? You can put them where the paper work says they shouldnt go & facing directions they shouldnt face & they still work fine as long as they get correct voltage.

Inside the radio box, thats your best bet! Out of the elements is best! Still counts no problem.
