The top hoop is aprox. 1/8 from touching the hood when fully closed.. He hoop is actually taller then the radiator expecially on the side where it is munched... I will lighten the pic up and try to put them up today on my site...

I thought it had already been renamed to Nolen Grogan Outdoors :flipoff2:

This is why I'm confused. I don't know if I need to re-join the TLCA or GMRU (Grogan's Minions R Us) :laughing:

It is the Man-a-Fre Aluminum radiator that is built to fit in the stock location.

Kling-on. I am thinking about round LEDs and setting it up to look like an early FJ with the reflectors and all......

With the thought of "you designed this rig to be durable after rolling", it appears that the top of the radiator is higher than the hoop? More to come, or am i missing something? bad camera angle?

Rad protection is high on my list, since that will immobilize your rig... I figured it would be on yours, too.
There is going to be a stinger of sorts (small) that will keep the pressure off the center of the radiator. The hoop will really help for side rolls.

The radiator is already "clearanced" from the front Bumper to the A-pillar. When I rolled it over backwards, I did not have any grill protection and that is as much of the radiator that was messed up.

1. You burn the fuel too fast for it to give off odors.....
2. The fuel is usally sloshing around so much it covers the vent.....

That is funny as hell.

That hose that is hanging in the picture is my vent hose. In the past it was not venting well, but Mark showed me how to fix it on the trail in Johnson Valley and all is well.......

Hey Jason,

Make sure you tie a nut on a string in one of the tubes so that it will clank around. :flipoff2:
