Is it just me or is it as tight as it looks from the pulley's to the core support?

nah, it's just that I dont have any pics from the side yet. Not only does the stock radiator fit, but it fits with the T100 clutch fan too. I would love to use an electric, but I want to avoid any thing that might break down up in the mountains and just stick to the mechanical fan.

A long time ago Marlin got a radiator from a diesel Toyota truck that's alot thicker, maybe a 4 core? 3? anyways, I'm thinking I might need a larger one too to help keep this engine cool - Im sure its not needed, but I just like to keep things as cool as possible. Crawling around rocks doesnt move much air through the radiator anyways...

So I am even wondering if I can use that thicker radiator and still be able to use the clutch fan. The 3RZ really isnt much longer than the 22R, but its alot taller...
