    030B6A94-B277-4E28-A303-C8A7C1996B7E.jpeg One thing that was missing on the truck was a radiator shroud. Since it has an afternarket aluminum radiator, I turned to Summit for the best fit. A universal anything requires some modifications.....
    This was the best size/fit available.
    It was a little wide and the ends were made shorter than the top and bottom

    A nip and tuck, broke the ends back and added a piece of angle to give a mounting plate

    Next, layout the fan....clearance is an issue, so the fan is top justified. Note the “p” for passenger & “d” for driver...I’m old and forgetful.

    Cut the circle free hand with a grinder....came out ok.
    Added some rubber edging to give a nicer finished opening.

    89531AC3-34F9-4BE5-B0C0-20617158809B.jpeg The fan needed to be recessed in the shroud for clearance.....All came together with 1-1/2” to spare.
    Lesson learned on this phase.....electric fan comes with zero anything. I wanted the 3000cfm so all the mounts, wiring and relays are up to me.

    Cooper is doing his pretrip once over on the mini. He says I’m hogging the garage

    I'm sure I've asked this before, but what did Stockton charge you for those wheels? I assume you provided donors?
