Griffin Radiator Upgrade for Jeep J-Trucks and the Grand
Griffin cooling system products are well-known in
the automotive field and desert racing. For maximum cooling and precise thermal protection, Jeep 4WD trail
rigs often run Griffin radiators and electric fan systems.
There are two HD videos covering the J10 Jeep 4WD truck and
installation of a performance Griffin Radiator. See the two videos at the 4WD Mechanix Video Network's "4WD Tech How-to Channel"
Jim Harmony's multipurpose 1984 Jeep J10 pickup needed more radiator for
mud bogging, trails and rock crawling. Fellow racer Robert Daly approached Griffin about a radiator for this
model and discovered the application was not available. Griffin offered to make a radiator, using the OEM J-truck
unit as a prototype.
Robert Daly shipped Griffin the stock radiator from the J10. The truck
was originally equipped with air conditioning, a Torqueflite and an AMC 360 V-8, which still powers the
pickup. Griffin not only built a heavy-duty replacement radiator, they also pledged to make the design available to
other Jeep owners with this radiator configuration.
Jim Harmony's J10 now has the ultimate highway, off-road and racing
radiator. The two 'how-to' HD videos were shot live at Robert Daly's A-1 Upholstery shop during the
installation. They share the radiator, Griffin's Spal fan system and other needs associated with the
radiator fit and electrical needs.
