    Some might know this and some might not so I figured I post it.

    This is a cheap mod to do and only takes a few minutes. Actually it is free if you have spare bolts laying around. For those of us with one piece fan shrouds making them a 2 piece design is easy. They are actually 2 piece and they are stapled together with 3 staples on each side. Just pull the staples out and drill some small holes where they were and put a bolt and nut on. Makes life so much easier when working on the front of the engine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep, mine has been like that for over a year, and I've done it on others... 1/8" machine screws, washers, and loc-tite work great.

    I had to do that when I installed my body lift. Good thought for some who may not know.
