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.

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
