I have been working on several projects involving Mud and Guts, one of which is relocating the radiator.

I didn't see a PRCs sticker in that display! GRRRR. Why did you have to move the radiator? Mud?
I haven't recieved my new larger PRC/SSW stickers yet 8) That SSN sticker will be coming off before it leaves the garage.
I needed the radiator higher to keep it from getting packed with mud and for better air flow. I will also be getting a new Fluidyne radiator.

What size and color do you want? Mud 'n Guts needs a PRC sticker!

Nope, they are prototype mounts, I had to block them out until the patent comes through.

WOW Looks really nice, How much cooler does it run? Worried at all about mud coming up from the rear tires?

When its done it will have a bed cover that will keep the mud from the rear tires off it. I haven't been able to take it for a long ride yet to see how cool it runs

Cool! I can't wait and see the long term benefits (I am positive they will be many!)

Just wondering if over time if all of the bouncing around and such would cause the rad to crack. I'm not sure just seems like a weird angle. I could see if was resting on the down tubes instead of hanging from them. Like I said not knocking it b/c it looks great just wondering.

Crap never mind I looked again. I thought those tabs were part of the rad and they are not. So the rad is resting in your mounts. Sorry.

As you noticed the mounts that its in are rock solid. The mounts are attached at the cage with rubber insulated mounts so the shocks to it should be minimal.
