87TPIYJ There were some races down here at the local park. My buddy let me wheel his TJ on 35ís while he broke in his buggy he just finished. Unfortunately Iím the worst at taking wheeling pics. So I didnít get any of the wheeling. Just the carnage and I was taking it ďeasyĒ. When son and I got home decided to take my Jeep to sonic. Did get a timeline. Supposedly my Jeep is scheduled to be painted end of July. [emoji1695]

87TPIYJ I had a feeling this would happen. My champion 3 row radiator has always teetered on not being good enough. Adding an A/c condenser in 2015 made it a little worse. Now with a gigantic transmission cooler it just isn't enough. I was running around 210į at 50mph. So I started looking for other radiators. To keep it simple I was looking for a direct fit that had the same flange for mounting the fan. Ended up with the Griffin radiator. It has two 1.25" tubes which is more than twice the surface area of the three .67" tubes I currently have. Dimensionally it is only 1/2" thicker and I have just enough room to support that. It should be here in a couple weeks.

Randonexplosion Im curious to hear how it goes but they will probably be on the stiff side until you break the seals in. Just go drive around like an Ultra 4 car and make those shocks work.

I think you have enough chrome showing and enough weight that they should ride pretty soft.

Who knows, you may still have to take out some oil and drill another hole like I did. I dont really see more weight helping to push more oil through.

Thanks dewd. Shocks feel good. I need to go run over a speed bump or curb to see if I get that affect like you and others have had. I think im running 100 or 110 in the lowers. I have 5.5" of chrome showing front and rear.

87TPIYJ Iím still waiting on some body work to be done on the hood, armor, and windshield frame, but I couldnít resist anymore had to take her for a spin. Extremely happy with the handling on the road.



She fits in the garage at ride height with full tire pressure.




While waiting I put a PRP wheel with an NRG quick disconnect .




Also installed a convex rear view mirror.

I’m going to be a little rusty so I seriously doubt that.
Wait. You’re not talking about getting the wifey pregnant?!!
