In this exclusive, 4WD
Mechanix Magazineinstalls the latest Griffin radiator prototype for the Jeep XJ
Cherokee. Fitted with twin Spal electric fans and a matching shroud, the package offers an advanced core and
tank design. Optimal for the tight space in a Jeep XJ Cherokee engine cooling environment, this radiator
does the work of thicker-core, big tank systems that cramp the engine bay. This is a direct replacement
radiator, as you will see in the complete 'how-to' HD video
The large radiator at right is
the traditional Griffin high performance unit for the Jeep XJ Cherokee. A substantial 2.5"
core, large-tank design, this radiator has served racing applications in the 300 horsepower range.
At left is the new prototype installed in this project, an advanced technology radiator that fits into
the XJ Cherokee's confines—yet cools as efficiently as a massive 'high performance'
In the HD videos, Moses Ludel
installs the latest Griffin prototype radiator and describes its fit and performance
gains. Boasting twin Spal fans mounted on a Griffin shroud, the all-aluminum radiator includes
a built-in brass transmission cooler for the AW4 automatic transmission. This is the most advanced Jeep XJ
Cherokee radiator design to date.
