JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Any mods for the uh lower radiator grille area

The exposed portion of the radiator under the bumper just seems unfinished to me. Anyone made up an insert or something more aesthetically pleasing

was thinking of putting more fog or driving lights there.

Well thats not the area I am referring to but that jeep does have 4 vertical bars in the aforementioned section that looks nice. Did certain model years get something different

Quote Originally Posted by corpulent Well thats not the area I am referring to but that jeep does have 4 vertical bars in the aforementioned section that looks nice. Did certain model years get something different The 04s have nothing down where the bars should be. Its totally open

Im actually looking to do the same thing. Put a 20 single LED Bar down there. Itll be somewhat hidden and keep the overall look of the front clean. On my 2004 Limited there is about a 2 inch gap between the lower radiator and chrome fascia that I eyed as a potential. Any thoughts

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Tiny Radiator crack

I noticed when i was poking around under the hood while she was running that i have a TINY TINY crack on the radiator where the upper hose comes in on the passenger side. Can i do anything to stop this (JB plastic weld) Or something besides replacing the whole radiator It doesnt leak out too bad at all... It is the Original radiator... Any feedback would be greatly appreciated... Going to keep a gallon

I replaced the radiator a few times in my jeep Grand cherokee with 4.0L. If you have lots of patience its not that hard. Raise your jeep with either car ramps or jack stands. Make sure that it is safe to 1) Remove the front bumpergrille. You will need an electric drill to remove the plastic rivets. You will need to buy new plastic rivets from Harbor Freight Tools (if you dont have plastic rivet gun

JEEP CHEROKEE whats the best way to flush out my radiator in my 2001 xj cherokee

what is the best way to fully flush out my radiator to remove all of the old coolant from the engine block and heater system

Just finished using the PRESTONE Super radiator Flush (2-bottles for 12-quarts and above) in our 2001 jeep cherokee. Took a long time to get system emptied -- running clear with distilled water -- (jeep radiator tank [2001] is plastic with lousy plastic draincock assembly difficult to get to without a sidewinder ratchet went and bought one as book says to remove entire front grille assembly) -- added

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE I ZJ ZJ AUX Lights Behind Grille

So i have seen this done a few times on different WJs but none that i really liked on a zj so i decided i would do it myself. The main issue when it come to fitting them in was the space and how i would mount them. Overall i think i found a method that would work and did it fairly cheaply. i did have to cut out some plastic from behind the grille but once the grille is on you cannot tell its missing.

once i got through here i fed it into the front grill area through a hole near the headlight i then ran it across the front of the car and hooked it up to everything else Here is the finished product I will get some good daylight pics tomorrow and add them to the thread overall cost - around 60 hope everyone enjoyed the thread. Totally cool. May I be so bold to suggest your next mod... httpwww.jeepforum.comforumf13z...t-mod-1321764

JEEP CHEROKEE 2000 4.0 Radiator Drain

Im gonna lose it man Just spent a half hour screwing with the radiator drain plug on my 2000 XJ. I cant get that thing to turn more than 14 turn and nothing comes out. Im worried that if I try to turn it more Im gonna bust it and have to buy a new radiator. Any suggestions Is it supposed to turn more than that Thanks

tite spot. In that case lower rad hose works fine. Can still make a mess though. I changed radiators. The replacement petcock seems easier to operate. Still have to take the grille out. Anyway dont let any of these things drive you nuts. Treat them as challanges. Try to think of a way to get them done. Look for different solutions to the problem. Theres always a way. If all else fails I ask my jeep

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE I ZJ 1998 ZJ Radiator Removal

It appears to be leaking. I read in some youtube comments that sometimes the radiator seems like it is glued fast to the AC condenser and people have a heck of a time with the removal. Is there something I should know about before I begin this little project I still havent ordered a radiator yet either. Thanks

I just replaced the leaking radiator in a 97 ZJ. The condenser and radiator were stuck together with a foam strip on each side. I used a long slender stick to help separate them. I did not remove the fan or fan shroud but it might might have been easier to do that as there would have been more room to access the trans lines and bottom hose. You will need to remove the grille to access two of the cover

That price is about the same as the one Ive got coming from Ebay. My objective is to try and increase my survivability when I have to drive thru deer country. I think those deer are beautiful creatures but they sure can be stuuuupid. You look right at them they look right at you... and then they jump right in your way at 50mph or more. WHam. Im told by experienced vehicular deer hunters (haha) that a grille guard might not totally eliminate all damage but it should reduce it -- save your radiator and headlights and make the difference between getting home that night or getting to spend the cold night out there with your fresh roadkill . Funny thing is Im not a hunter and I dont even have a rifle. But hey who needs the rifle... I just use the whole jeep

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE radiator air seals

replaced the radiator on my 4.0l all the rubbers on it were dry rotted and falling apart. the fsm says they must go back on. i cant find anything anywhere about them. the engine temp is running higher than id like. not overheating. around 220deg. to answer a few questions the cooling system is not leaking all components are new. engine is running right. has anyone had this problem know where to find these air seals Thanks any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cant say a lot about jeep foam yet but on my V12 Jag that foam is very important. Everything on the underside in front of the car is there to keep as much air as possible flowing through the radiator. When its done right all the air that enters the grille has to flow through the rad. On that Jag foam pipe insulation worked well around the rad. It had a viscous coupled fan like the jeeps.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 5.9 Radiator Advise Needed

I did a search and couldnt find the answers to my questions. My buddy has a 5.9 with about 180k on it. He needs it to last him another year or so. He doesnt take it off-road and it is not used to tow. Could he replace his leaky radiator with one of the ebay specials that are 1 row Or does this jeep NEED at least a 2 row Also any special tools needed to tackle this job I am guessing that the grille and header panel are going to need to be removed. Any other input is appreciated. Thanks.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Radiator removal problems

Im really struggling to get the viscous fan off in an effort to change my radiator on my 2002 Liberty. I need a tool hold the water pump pulley in place but cant get hold of one in the UK. In the USA there is a tooll available here httpwww.amazon.comLisle-44180-Clutch-Spanner-WrenchdpB000W0WSPI I was going to make my own and would be very grateful if someone can measure the length of the holes on the

i dont remember pulling the fan off to replace mine but i replaced the condenser at the same time. we were in a fender bender the ins co paid us then the ac went out no biggie then the radiator had a hairline crack a few months later. i pulled the grille and bumper cover out and did it all from the front as i recall. i also made it a point to bring my wife out when i had it all apart just to see the look on her face when her jeep had no face while she looked at the skeleton she almost cried.......

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Radiator

You never know until you ask so here Im asking Blew a hole in my radiator overheating the other day in McDonalds drive thru. My question is do you have to take the whole grille and bumper off to access the bolts Or can it be done an easier way With this heat and all and not having a garage Im tryin to it easy and quickly. Which I know it may not happen but givin it a shot haha

I have a 2000 WJ Laredo with two fans (electric and water pump fans) because of towing package. Its a 4.0L engine. If you have two fans (electric and water pump) it may be necessary for you to remove the bumper and grille. I have removed the radiator TWICE last month because I forgot to retighten the tranny line male fittings. Removing the bumpergrille isnt that hard but itll take you an extra time.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE front grille

Is it just me or is the front grille on the Liberty too open and just a big invitation to radiator damage. I can see some stones have already bent the radiator fins in a couple of places.

I forget exactly where I saw it but I came across this grille insert that went between the outide casing and the radiator itself. I think it was meant to add more bling bling but its honeycomb pattern would be useful for at lease deflecting some road debris. But then your shiney honeycomb grille thingy would just get all marred up.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE radiator muff

Im struggling to find a winter radiator grill muff I want to get the heater blowing hot instead of luke warm..the blower & heater are fine ( upgraded resisier etc ) it just cold here -10 last night can anyone help .

First off does your factory engine temperature gauge show a normal temp reading ( temp needle in the middle) Also when in all honesty have you had your Liberty in a real shop to have the cooling system flushed and re-filled with the correct coolant (No I didnt read all the comments to this thread.) You can buy chrome grille trim incerts that restrict the air flow through the grille. That will help.

JEEP CHEROKEE is my cherokee not supposed to have a radiator cap

i have an 88 and theres a coolant leak from the lower rad hose and i noticed theres no rad cap or no drain caulk either. is that stock or did someone put a different radiator in there at some point

Quote Originally Posted by berlinetta no drain caulk either. is that stock or did someone put a different radiator in there at some point Assuming that you mean drain petcock there should be one on the lower right side of the radiator.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE 3.7 RAdiator change out question

Well looks like the radiator in my friends Liberty has failed (as I just sold it to her I feel obliged to help fix it ). Anyway Ive searched alot of great info on here and found that nearly all UK 3.7 jeeps have the additional fan so that will need to come off. What I cant find though is any reference to removing the hoses that seem to go in around half way up on the RH side (looking forwards). Ive

JEEP CHEROKEE grille guardbrush guard where to get them

ok so im haveing a hard time finding one that bolts onto the bumper that is just the simple two uprights and two cross bars. i saw the warn transformer brush guard and grille guard which are apparently differnet things but one costs 100 dollars while the other is 400 what is what here i dont mind headlight guards too but want to stay under 100 dollars thanks

Hey Kyle You and I are both in the market for grille guards. But under 100 Im not sure that would get very much... but then I think were looking for something a little different. I want a full width grille guard that covers the headlights. For this at first I found MANIX from TRUCKADDONS.com. That would have been a nice one at 560 delivered.. but they never could deliver it. 2 weeks turned into 4 and

JEEP CHEROKEE Radiator coolant looks like terd water....

That one should get people to wonder lol. 2000 cherokee Sport 4.0L I flushed my coolant system yesterday at the house with the t-fitting spliced into the heater hose method. When I initially turned on my garden hose the fluid that came out of that radiator looked like mud. It continued to look like mud for 15 minutes. That lead me to a more thorough inspection of the jeep for any indication that the

Do NOT use hose pressure as you will kill it.

JEEP CHEROKEE Are XJ radiators supose to leak or something

I recently changed my radiator in my XJ because it was leaking. I also changed all the hoses and what not. I also flushed the system too. The problem is that it will leak in the same spot as before Which is on the lower pasenger side of were the radiator sits. Is there anything else that needs to be done Are XJ radiators supose to leak

I had my radiator leak at the exact same spot. Replaced it and it isnt leaking so far (1mo ago)...but Im still using a little bit of coolant (from full to add in about 2 days) which is either a coolant consumption issue from a cracked head or still cycling air out of the system. Are you sure its still leaking there or are you just missing coolant I would check the drain on the radiator and make sure

JEEP CHEROKEE Radiator and Condensor for 91 XJ

My friend just recently wrecked his cherokee. Hit a pole head on. He needs a radiator with the AC condensor also. Does anyone know where we could find one. We do not want to buy a new one. Also the front grill parts. Like the grill surround headlamp bezels turning signal lamps. Does anyone know anyone that has some just sitting around. Or where would be the cheapest place to find those parts. We have searched junkyards in 3 counties and have come up with no luck. Help

His also has the closed rad. system where he has to check the fluid levels through the overflow bottle. Are you wanting to sell yours or were you just informing me of what the radiator system was like Does it have the small air conditioning condensor or whatever that is in fron of the radiator closest to the grille I will offer a fair amount if you are willing to sell and everything is there. Thanks XJBill
