Birds nest in rad!
 
I had my grill off to replace headlamps and started looking around, and found my rad was a mess. The first set of fins had some bugs and stones, but when I looked down between the first and second set of fins I found a birds nest http://s1066.photobucket.com/albums/...-141437073.jpg
I wasn't having any problems, but this can't be good. With out the panel off that covers the rad I would never have seen this.

I have the 2009 Ram
i drive places that the Mexican butterflies, hay from bales & bees are prevalent

I went to Home Depot & purchased some expanded metal & corner bead
i didn't want debris in my radiator, power steering, & transmission cooler fins
