    I was trying to get Joe to take me in his little truck but he has plans and I am going shopping for appliances and cabinetry.
    The good news I am also looking for Garage (He Shed) plans. going to try to get plans ready and submitted for permits so we can start building as soon as the house is done.

    What a great day! Big thanks to @Wattsy and @Krusty Krab for all the spotting! Stock Bronco on 31" Firestone A/Ts, no lift, and just an LSD in the rear. I'm not sure Ford had that in mind when designing the OJ Broncos! I have to admit that there were more than a few times I didn't think we'd get through. For me that trail was 2-3 with a few 4s! I don't know if your son's pickup would have done well on that trail with its long wheel base @Krusty Krab.

    It was nice meeting you, your gal, and your dog @NV1971FJ40!

    Hey John, I don't know your screen name here on mud. But Here is the link to the radiator I mentioned. The 3-row is $495 plus tax and shipping and includes 16" Pro-Series Electric Fan and Shroud, 2 x 13 Polished Overflow Tank, 48" Polished Stainless Steel Hose kit (4 end caps to make 2 hoses) for that price. Just the radiator is $215 and the fan and shroud is another $170. It is rated for engines that produce up to 500 HP. The 4-row is rated at 800 HP and warns "Due to these tanks being thicker minor mods may be needed to fit the core support." I don't know what they mean by "minor" but my guess is some shaving to fit it into place. They also have transparent inline coolant filters and other nice accessories on their site.

    You can learn more about Evans Waterless Coolant here. Even Jay Leno likes it! Here's a video on how it works. Summit Racing and Amazon both sell it and I think you'd need 5 gallons (19.9 qt)? Makes sure you go through the instructions on the Evans site to do it correctly.

    I'll let you know when I am ready to purchase my radiator if you want to order one with me.

    Thank you sir! I would have been screwed without some amazing spotters and everyone's patience.
