This adds 6 HP more to my jeep, well kind of.

Now I'm waiting for the Griffin radiator to arrive this evening.
I expect to see a writeup on your stealth mount setup. I've wanted to do that for a while on my Jeep for a while but I have no clue how to even begin. I'm debating on getting the RC winch plate eventually for it instead...

So I cut all that junk off, thinking about welding the seams or just grind smooth and hammer over. Structurally everything is still good.

Now to find a fair steel supply in Houston.

Split on making it a winch bumper(with the winch recessed into the grille), or just a fairly lighter and better angled bumper. Not sure on recover points, my KOR radiator support already has them.

correct me if i am wrong, but isnt there airbag sensors on those tabs you cut off? and if so what did you do with the airbag sensors? relocate or leave em out? I love the look of the chopped bumper and want to do the same.

Speakers got delivered today, and 3 of them are installed. No more rattling from one that was blown. Adapter brackets from Crutchfield made install a breeze. Also, my first class was cancelled this morning, so I took advantage of the extra time and installed my hack n tap SYE. Took lots of pics, so writeup to come. Dropped off my carolina driveshaft before class to get it shortened a couple inches, but wont be done til saturday. Until then, I gotta drive my dads car to school.

Got my Griffin radiator today.



Here she is, will take some good photos tomorrow and compare it against the Ron Davis and stock radiators.


Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.
