Some of you may know ive had some cooling issues in the past. everything is new and i still couldnt keep the jeep cool under heavy abuse, I was running a 3 row all metal and it just wasnt cutting the mustard.
So I found a local company that has a 3 row full tigged (no epoxy) drop in radiator for 200 bucks. yes 200 bucks... so i had to jump on it. especially because i have a run coming up that takes me 200 miles one way through the mojave desert, and the last 2 years ive had to stop to let things cool.
so heres my install, after a couple days on the freeway my temps have GREATLY dropped. of course my motor is still at 190, but i have my autometer gauge probed in the radiator. I can barely get the gauge to move with the E fan on. before my radiator would run 150 to 210 on the freeway.
so i started by draining the coolant out of the rad and block.
unplug all the hoses going to it.
then 6 bolts to remove the radiator.
side by side.
then i mounted the resivoir also from champion. its stainless and comes with L brackets. I just had to drill some holes and set it up for my application.
