Geez. I didn't realize how much negative camber you have at droop!
Looks like my limit straps have stretched out.
I need to double them up or move the mounts for a 3rd(!!!) time.


Shiiiiiiit, I’m probably getting like 17.75” of travel by the looks of that super-Bro camber!

Didn't you know that's how the turdbro gets his aerodynamic stability?
He specifically built that into the truck like the rear wings of the f-22.
"But their mounted the opposite way", you say...
Duh! Ryan clearly knew that for them to function properly on the FRONT of the truck they had to be setup the opposite of the REAR of that jet.

Fixing the overheating problems

Time: 4 hours
Cost: $0
Weight added: 15lbs
Materials: 0.050” 5052 Aluminum
Music: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and The Vandals
Beers: 6
Tools: bandsaw, finger brake, bead roller, drill press

Deleted plastic/aluminum radiator and installed an all-Copper unit that was 0.8” thicker and 1.75” taller. Only modifications required were new holes for my McMaster rubber vibration mounts and a new bottom radiator hose.




Made some ducting to direct air through the radiator. Use some 0.050” 5052. Attached with 10-32 NAS pan heads


Reinstalled everything


Truck stayed under 190F! Kickass!


More aluminum panels to direct airflow:










Moved the coolant overflow hose because it looked awful atop the ducting/shrouding.


Cut all the restrictions out of the stock grille. Approximately 30 square inches of flow-blocking material removed. 2” saw on the die grinder cut the plastic much better than an abrasive cutoff wheel.




More flow!


Gap in the top above the fan shroud doesn’t seem to have any detrimental effects on cooling performance.
