    Welcome to Jeepz.com.

    I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to. Here's a shot of my 2005 TJ - is the part you're referring to in the photo?

    Be sure the fin density is the same or higher using an after market radiator. Especially if you ride in hot locations or high altitudes. Some tried double and triple core radiator but experienced overheating when crawling or standing.

    Thanks for replying Terry , yeah it's that grill in front of the radiator , that's with the 2 bolts on top . Is that just a grill guard and if so, besides blocking debris from hitting the radiator is it necessary ( non off-roading ) , i made grills out of radiator cover metal for myself (2011 unlimited ) And for couple of friends that sit right behind the front grill , that also works as a guard ,but do have to remove the stock one to install mine , just don't want to have them both on friends Tj if it is not neccessay . The pic is how it sits on mine , but I can remove my whole front panel.

    My Jeep came with that Chrome cover. The chrome cover doesn't do anything other than cover the factory grill, and doesn't have any sort of radiator protection or screen. Not sure if that helps you or not.

    My bad! Thought you made radiators not grill or radiator guards.
    FYI blocking air flow can result in lower mph and overheating.

    That guard on top helps force the air through the radiator. So it is needed.

    When driving above 35 mph the air forced through the radiator is enough to cool the engine. With enough air flow, the clutch fan does not kick in and load the engine. With blackouts the engine will load most of he time and mph will tank.
