Put it between the frame and pack or if going frameless in the radio pouch...you may have to lay it down. There was a link someware on here to show how. Someone will maybe chime in.

It will work but you need to sew in a hanger for it, unless you can epoxy in a pouch or something like that.

You can run the tube under the flap or through the radio antenna hole if it has one.

True, but if you can simply place the camelback in the radio pouch inside the main compartment and that would work.
Use a piece of 550 through a grommet or something to hang the bladder inside the ruck. If the bladder is just lying in the pack it will eventually collapse and become blocked up.

I have a modified pack from London Bridges Trading Co that has a suspension system that holds 2, 3L bladders. They also sell the suspension on its own as the LBT-2168E, the system is made for very heavy loads, and it works very well.
