Nice what you did to your Tj there. I like it when you thought of learning the vehicle frst before anything. That way, you'll know every inch of the vehicle.

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.

a little update on my radiator... I was wondering if my autometer gauge was bad or not working properlly since my sensor is in the bottom of the radiator. I picked up a thermal gun that takes instant temp readings. Josh and I followed each other to the tire shop to get some work done and we took the streets fast then the highway for a couple miles. we pulled up and I took a reading from the bottom of the radiator..... 72 degrees. YES!!!! before my gauge would be reading an easy 150 to 210. two thumbs up on the radiator so far!
