SO I got bored at work and drew this, its based off of some pictures Steve sent me he found. Now I just need to slap some dimensions on it and I'll post them on the website under How To's...




Sorry for the quality, the only way I know how to make it so ya'll can all view my .dwg is to export to a .jpg and it gets grainy in the process.

I dont think you need it really, the radiator is going to act as the same. I dunno would just have to put it together and see how stiff it was.

Same thing I thought. If it's good and tight, there shouldnt be a problem with it wobblin' side to side. Who know's though, til it's all assembled

one mine we used 2 cross peices and welded angle iron on top of the square tubing this is done so the radiator kinda floats inside the frame I kinda get alittle wild every once and awhile when the frame is on the front it should protect the radiator if i lay it over if anyone has any ? give me a shout

i just cut the stock brackets off the bumper for the bottom taps and welded them to the rack. then welded some bars goin up wit the ends flattened and bent to the angle of the radiator for the top mount.

I dont have a cross member on mine and it does not move at all. I used two L brackets that I bought at Lowes and just bent the angles I needed and it works fine.
