    which side does the radiator need to come in and out on? lots of people do that swap so someone will make the radiator you need. they made one for me to put a 302 into my 87 wrangler and not many people put ford motors in
    no more jeeps at this time. next time it will be a cj with a v8

    Don't go cheap and get a Mishimoto radiator, hear bad things about them. I just installed a Howe Aluminum radiator in my old Jeep with a 6.3 L. It seems to be doing fine. Also had a custom shroud made and installed a two speed elec. fan.

    Speedway motors.. They have aluminum jeep conversion radiators, or regular chevy radiators,. I put one in my jeep with GM v8 and its cools awesome, I rarely turn the fans on. $129.00 + shipping, I think mine was around 155.00 to my door. The 129.00 aluminum radiator doesn't have any mounting tabs, you can make your own or they will sell you some. For a fan, look into ford tarus fans, I have one in my jeep and they move a lot of air.

    I used a volvo 2 speed fan on mine because of the amount of air it moves. Also heard great things about Ford Taurus fans but they were a little to big for my build.

    Well, I tried to upload a picture of my radiator with the tarus fan on it, but cant seem to get it to load. I used my computer to take the picture and used the "insert image" on here but it didn't work, worked in the past?? My radiator is 26" wide and 19" tall and fills the whole radiator area, but fits perfect. you may want to go a size smaller just to be sure it fits. You are wanting a radiator fan correct? your not looking for a heater fan too are you? if so, as mentioned, the blazer heater fan is the way to go.

    I know shell Valley makes a good body control seems a little bit expensive and US Body Source seems to have make a pretty nice body too if you get the heavy duty version
