hey Jared, it sucks, but I think Champion is Chinese junk. I have gone through either two or three of them now. That was pretty much the only part of my Jeep I totally cheaped out on. If I had it to do over, it would be the 5 bills for a Be Cool or other American made brand.

I've seen that thing rolling around for years. I remember seeing it on the lot, brand new, at Chapman Jeep.

Way back when, there used to be a dealer over off of Sahara right by TGI Fridays. I remember seeing that Jeep there for sale.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I'll give the champion one more shot. From what I can tell it cools amazingly well. I was just looking, and the next best radiator is a griffin for just under $600, 3x what I paid. If another ends up not working ill probably go with CSF 3 core.

Is there a specific plan/location for this yet? Not sure if I can make it, but just in case it would be good to know.

Yup, that's why I went with the Champion as well... only crappy thing was they charged me shipping both ways on their defective radiators, so I'm into it almost as much as a Griffin as it stands right now. Good on you for getting it done without having to pay the shipping.

I've never seen a soft top that has the straps and buckles on the outside, looks interesting. I like the slanted rear window though, looking forward to hearing how it wears.

Should have got a radiator from Performance Radiator, that's off of Trop & Arville. I got mine for my dearly departed ZJ for 171$ and some change.

I had it for 3 years, and even when the jeep rolled over it still never sprung a leak. I will definetely be buying another one from them in the future. I believe they make them up in Tacoma, WA also.

Its a rampage frameless. The windows come out and its a safari top. Its super thick. I had one on my first white TJ and I like it and it was the cheaper one. He has those for 230 and this one was 285ish
