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.

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
