Those are nice looking louvers. I think the stamped look worlds better than the riveted ones. Plus you don't have to bondo to hide the seams.

My CJ7 has been getting up close to 230* when during my last trail ride while I was winching a wrangler out and just slowing crawling along trails. Where could I get a fan shroud that would work with my stock radiator. I'm also considering getting an electric fan, but I would prefer something cheaper (I'm on a college student budget). Does the FSJ fan w/clutch work a lot better than the a clutchless CJ fan?

Electric fan pros

You can pick up an electric fan for pretty cheap. As another college student on a budget, I'm always looking for a deal. An electric fan will give you a slight boost in available horsepower and gas milage. Every little bit helps. They are not hard to wire, and the kits come with multiple ways to activate them. They do put a drain on the stock wiring harness, so a good tip is to have dedicated grounds running to various systems. (Check many of JeepHammer's posts for this info.) Dedicated grounds really do help, and you should have most of the tools needed to do these upgrades already, if you work on your own jeep. The electric fans really pay for themselves pretty quickly.

I did the rivet style as I can't stamp steel for crap. I also needed to exhaust more hot air out the engine bay. AMC 360 w/ upgrades.

That actually looks pretty good. I like how you didn't try to hide the rivets. With the OD green and the riveted louvers it looks mean, and kind of military.
