the headers i got are designed to run inside the frame rails.

on the fuelcell, probably a 15 gallon aluminum RCI from summit.....

(1 TON, appreciate the offer on the headers, but mine will be delivered tomorrow.)



erik..... the pane's gotta go..... just a personal preference!

The biggest thing with the radiator:

Make sure it's centered on the fan. If the fan is higher or lower than the rad, you run the risk of heat issues. I got lucky on my build I guess....the fan is within 1/2" of being centered both top/bottom and left/right. I have zero heat issues. This is of course assuming your using a mechanical fan. The electric fans you can just attach to the rad, no big deal.

I've been running the exact same setup as your buddy since 2002. It works great.

i haven't done it yet, but i think you take the front case half of the 231c and mate it to the back half of the 231j.....



another radiator question.....would a 2 row radiator be sufficient or do i need a 3 row???

Two row is fine. Aluminum will cool better. Don't limit yourself to radiators that are 100% bolt-on. The universal ones can be adapted very easily and usually cool better.

FWIW my 2 row bolt in conversion radiator has always been on the edge. I will be switching to aluminum.

That will work fine. It will probably come with holes in the top and bottom lips for mounting but if not you can drill them yourself.

Also, a peice of 2" wide strap or box tube fits in between the lips top and bottom so you can get creative with you're mounts if you want.

This may be somewhat of a stupid question but where do you guys get your transfer cases from? Do you use ford or chevy or does it depend on what axles you're using?

1 ton yj i agree with ya on the cradle and having yer engine mounts baked real easily. that cradle puts my engine in nicely but ya i could use a little more height to lower my tranfercase to get my drive angle better about the motor mounts i still use the cradle but decided to use solid engine mounts with it
