Bad Night = Bad week

I went wheeling last night on a friends property. Nothing to crazy just some fields and small trails. I may have spun a donut or two but this isn't easy in a Jeep on dry grass. I also hit a plastic 55 Gallon drum and I heard a loud scraping noise in the engine compartment.

Didn't investigate till today at home... When I went outside there was a large puddle of antifreeze under the Jeep. Poured some water in the radiator and it all came out the bottom. Proceeded to remove the radiator and found a huge gash in the fins toward the bottom, and some marks on the shroud. The strange part is there was no bent fins on the fan, only a few marks on the ends of the fins.

I'm just hoping it was a stick or something and I don't have broken motor mounts.

Eh, those stock radiators can come loose and move around. Pic didn't work btw.

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
