    photo_1.JPG photo_3.JPG photo_2.JPG Hello All,

    Been a while since I have posted. I have managed to get a lot more done to my 96 5.0 swap. I am still having difficulties with keeping it cool.

    I have used the 96 Ranger heavy duty radiator (4 core), a 180 deg thermostat and still it will run hot at a drive through. I have a new fan clutch and the correct shroud.

    Can anyone tell me what radiator I can use that will fit without too many mods? I have no lift or lowering kits installed nor do I plan to.

    Had the truck painted recently, let me know what you think.

    Dean, this is mitch. If its still overheating, I was told by this good ol boy to do a cowl induction hood. If you do that it should help. the big motor doesn't make air through the grill easy. I've looked into it and wanted to do the conversion to my 88 4x4. Hope that helps. :)

    How do I get off the plugs on my 2004 3.0L edge?
