After all the talks we've had in the GC section, why oh why did you get a 3-row?

It works great!!! I'm having an issue w/my temp but I think it's due to my clutch fan (it only occurs when the a/c is on and under a lot of load).

The install is painless. I had to dremel off the metal nubs on the bottom to make it fit. Other then that there are no surprises. You'll leak some tranny fluid when you disconnect the lines, so be prepared...have some handy as a precaution. If you need a hand let me know. I'm going on vacation next week so I'm not sure if I'll have time before then.

Ryan, you still have the stock radiator support, right? You won't have to trim it - Kevin's Radiator support doesn't have the clearance for the pegs.

Thanks for the offer Nick. I'm on a pretty tight time crunch with this, so I'm going to try to get it done ASAP (hopefully by Sunday). Glad to hear it's working out for you.

Oh, one more question. It's all metal, right? I don't know what DC was thinking when they used plastic.

Cool man, good luck.

Jim good call on the Radiator support. I just presumed Ryan had one.

Yes, it's all metal!!!!!!!

Jim, I still have the stock rad support so it hopefully won't be an issue.

Ryan, pop by tomorrow and we'll swap it out. I'll probably be finishing up on mine by around 5 or 6.

Thanks, but I don't think I'll have the replacement by then. I just ordered it this morning! Plus, I'm not sure I'd be able to make it to your house with it in this condition. I used 2 gallons of water to get it back to my house...probably only 5-6 miles total.
