Default Radiator front or rear.



Not sure I want to build the front frame section wide enough for the radiator again. Thinking of putting it in the back of the truck.

front

seems more simple. usually easier to package and hoses/whatnot stay shorter (easier to route)

truly no real answer, just opinions and you'll have to flip a coin and decide

The rear is a good option. It's safe back there and no mud can get in it.

Have you even gotten the front Axle at full stuff, put the hood on to simulate where that'll be and see if the radiator will fit between the two yet?
