    Cab heat

    Up to now I have enjoyed the "Automatic In Cab Heating" system. Now that we are seeing 80 degrees I am wondering what people are doing to cool things down. I hate duct tape but.......

    I love everything about the XX except the heat that comes in the cab due to all of the holes in the dash and the fact that there is no closed firewall. Now that the weather is warming up it has got unbearable. Both my wife and myself are sweating when we go on a ride. So right now I am in the process of installing a rear radiator across the rear bars of the roll cage. I am then going to put a tool box where the front radiator was. I have also installed a winch where the front radiator was. Much better. When Robby Gordon designed it, which he did a great job, he did not take into consideration driver comfort.

    Total investment into the radiator switch is $250.00. new jeep grand cherokee radiator with 3 electric fans, weatherpak connectors, 4- 1 7/5" roll bar clamps, 2 1/2" aluminum angle iron, 1" aluminum angle iron, rubber grommets and some 14 gauge wire. 2 of the fans work like the stock fans did and the third center fan is on a manual switch for when we are sitting still in it and feeling a heat from the radiator behind us.

    No, you could use the stock radiator but it does have one issue. The radiator filler is not on the radiator. It is on the overflow tank which is higher than the stock radiator location. That plus the fact that it has plastic ends on it made me chose the aftermarket radiator. The one pictured above cost me $169.00 shipped with 3 electric fans on it. Ebay. From a 91-99 Jeep grand Cherokee. it measures 12" x 36" with a filler cap built on it. perfect.

    If you use the stock radiator you are going to have to come up with a way to fill it up and remove the air bubbles which will accumulate in it.

    I don't believe that will work. In theory you could move the fans to the other side of the radiator or buy pusher fans but you will constantly be fighting the normal flow of air traveling thru the radiator from your forward travel, so you would be fighting the air flow across the radiator and probably overheat.
