    I'm guessing that rad you had was wider than 31"? Not sure how sunk the grill is between the frame but that might be a problem for a 19" tall rad. If you are doing dual e-fans, a 31" x 16" could work well.

    let me know Curt what you decide, the guys at Hamilton Rad are good to deal with, like cash and we (work) deal with them all the time. They can/will build custom or mod one if required.... let me know. I will see what I can do down here for you
    Also side note, not that it may help you, but onoffroaddaddy just did some mods to his CJ grill to make a bigger rad work?
    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    Sounds good buddy! I'll take some measurements and see what i have to work with. I lost a bunch of inches lowering the grill and my steering box is pretty high so i doubt what Paul is running would work for me.

    I'm running YJ grill, 2core custom rad I'm not sure who made them(USA). Are the YJ grills bigger than CJ ones?

    I also have just single electric fan that does the job cooling my LQ4. I just need to remember to turn it on. Maybe run thermostatic switch this year.

    Check out "Be Cool" rads you can get them in all different sizes I put one in my YJ with a 1st gen 350 and sometimes it almost runs too cold for it on spring and fall days. I think it was under the $300 mark out the door but that was 2 yrs ago.

    That's a good price. Think they're a lot more now.

    I measured and a 16 x 31 would fit. Gonna do some more snooping. Got some decent leads on the book of faces.

    I cut the grill as Cheyne suggested which opened up some room. Might shave a little hood too.



    Then i started to carefully trim off the the old mounts and said fawk it. Cut it all off one time. lol. Talked of leaving mounts and lengthening arms but that seemed like a pain in the ass and already have bendy issues at that length.








    Mocked up with a 4" further stretch putting me at 117" wheelbase which evens out the wheel wells and gives a bit more room for drivetrain. Still need to notch the frame to lower it a couple inches

    It is not uncommon to remove that hood re-enforcement bracket thing to gain some space. The CJ hood latch doesn't do a damn thing anyway. A 31" x 16" cross flow rad will work perfect in there and is a good core size for running dual 13" or 14" fans.

    That steering box sure is in the way of everything!

    Got a call from Jim at Rockspyder this morning about something he just pulled out of a customers rig i might be interested in. So, lunch time cruise it was. Tank, pump, filters, regulators, sender and what not for a smokin deal! Even came with a couple huge pieces of checker plate that i'll likely be able to use to box it in. Thanks again Jim!

    Best guess is about 75 litres.

    I think my 6L has a return so i'm guessing i lose the regulator and run it. Honestly haven't put a second of thought into it. I was gonna use my stock tank up until this morning. lol

    Oh **** ya bud!

    I'd be concerned with tire rubbage on the frame though depending how much you like to air down.
