    Mine just pooped a chicken on me this weekend. It seperated where the rubber and the steel meet. I removed the system and went mud bogging on Sunday. Didnt notice a change in temps.

    Hi
    If the cooler was there for a reason, you should have it repaired, in the long run, you would not regret it.

    I'm looking into getting the biggest coolers I can find. I belive in biggest/heaviest duty is better. Just need the fundage first. It sucks having to be a responcible person and paying bills first. I'd really like to put the money into the Blazer, but bills gotta come first.
