obviously, I'm in no rush to get it right now still have to build the stand and whatnot, but it would be nice not to have to buy every size I want to use.
You can pick it up on the way to big bear ...

How was the trail? Have you run the rubicon? Can you compare the 2?

How much fuel did you use?

Trail was good definately had to pay attention to what you were doing. Very tight trail with LOTS of trees. The last section after Ershim lake was the hardest with Divorce rock, a killer climb up mountain side & super tight squeeze between rocks with drop offs. Hardest trail I have ever done. I used my whole tank full plus 5 gallons to run trail & just made it back to Clovis. Ive never run Rubicon but was told both trails are rated the same with Dusy being 3 times longer. I will post pics of obstacles when I get a chance.

TJR, It looks like an all metal radiator. If so, have it repaired. The only real radiator shop left that I know of is Intermountain Radiator in Poway, same complex as I used to work at the tranny shop. Bar's leaks will work, but, long term you should just replace it. You can get CSF radiators at Autozone and O'Really?s for about $100.

Yep Johnnys Dodge. It was pretty awesome to watch that thing on the trail. I dont know how he made it through with the body still straight. There was a fullsize blazer & cherokee on trail we saw from another group, blazer was smashed every corner lights busted out,nerf bars tacoed. The cherokee had rolled on its side.

I have never used them but have heard good things about Ace Radiator.

It used to be common to have radiators re cored but it's a lot cheaper now to buy a new one. Like moose said, if you can find the hole it might be a 2 second job to weld it

Thanks Jeff and Moose, Ill give Ace Radiator a call.
what brand radiator do you guys recommend? OEM radiator from the dealership is going for $300 and its the same price from wermopar.com. They are way more expensive for an auto tranny

Actually, about 13 yrs ago after running through 2 stock radiators (under warrantly) luckily. after warranty ran out I got sick of the junk plastic radiators and got one of these http://jeepin.com/features/csf
