Its getting close to time i should probably have my radiator redone or get a new one. It does not leak and i dont have any issues however i do have alot of bent fins, some quarter size areas as well (i assume from rocks or birds).

If i am going to keep the truck running well i need to keep it and i dont want to put it off and then get stranded beside the road. Which always happens when your broke lol

So i was wondering if anyone has installed one of those "behind the grill radiator protectors (bug screens)" and how is it working out for you?

Thanks

I have a rock & bug screen in front of the fins on the radiator & A/C cooler
I went to Home Depot & bought some Expanded Metal & Drywall Corner Bead & a short piece of plumber strap



look close & you can see it

I have some plumbers wire as well as aluminum screen materials, I may rig up one to the grill itself on the inside.
