Also, I'll have to start watching for future runs! I'm busy next two weekends in a row but I'd love to get out with some of the local jeep people on a run in mine.

Mcroberts just picked up a 2011 JK, not sure if it's stick though. Shoot him a PM, i think he posted about buying it a page or two back.

If you ever wanna build anything for an old *** wagoneer, let me know haha.

LOL, trust me, there's LOTS of things I'd love to build for a lot of vehicles but convincing the head of sales and the guy who's name is on the building that the investment is worth it is the part I have a problem with! LOL

Thanks for the heads up, I'll shoot him a PM right now.

My jeep is a 40 year old v8, and it runs cool enough, haha.

The chinese radiator has been good, and it has a good waranty if i remember correctly.

Vegas Matt had one that sprung a leak after like a year i think, but the seller sent him a new one.

Mine has been good, and has cooled really well.

People say a lower t-stat will not change your running temp, but i dont believe that. If it's not fully open until it reaches say 190 degrees, how can the radiator work 100% and keep it any lower than 190?

I had a 195 degree (stock) t-stat in my truck and it would run constantly at 210, got as high as 235 once (pushing up hill at 50mph towards nelson, when it was 115 degrees out). I put in a 180 or something when i did the radiator, and the truck hasnt passed 190 (okay, maybe like 192).
