    Re: Reworking 4wd radiator

    Thanks for all the R&D Vanco.
    I have 600 miles on my set up, the flex-a-lite 365 scirocco fans. Driving 20 miles or less and no real load.
    The fans keep the engine slightly cooler than my stock...

    The AFCO is a 3" thick radiator, that Griffin is 2". I'm hoping that a 3" would have improved cooling ability.
