I agree with the above, if you into deep mudding, then yeah, do it..IMO..it is a must!! don't wanna hold up the ride cause of over heating due to a mud clogged radiator..

I've had this exact situation and it is no fun! Sine relocating it I've had ZERO overheating. I also run Purple Ice in mine.

I have the Wild Boar relocate. A little pricey but worth it.

Building your own isn't hard. Just fab it up and fit before you paint. I made this mistake painting it while its on was a little harder.

I decide to build my own my plan is to use 1/8" steel and build a stand for the radiator like on the how to but im going to build a cover around the radiator that bolts to the radiator stand to hide the radiator and drill 1 1/4" holes in the front to get me the air I need. im hoping to start tomorrow I built two of my snorks today im going to wait to build the inake snork when I get my carbs jetted and back on the brute. I will post befor and after pics when im completely done with the build thanks for your help guys
