I noticed the OEM radiator in my CJ was badly damaged in a circular pattern as if the fan hit it (this is with a V8 too, not the I6).
I never understood how this could happen unless the mounts sheered
is it possible the motor mount bushings and tranny mount allow some forward movement? (I haven't looked at them on my CJ yet, dont know if they are different from my YJ).
