    Anyone relocate thier radiater to the rear of the truck...I have a chopped off 88 suburban and was thinking of moving the rad to the rear for protection and to save some weight up front, I may even toss the cradle also, along with inner fenders...would probably build a box around the engine for protection/water/mud splashing...we do lots of mud/bush running, also the truck does not see street duty, only off road carnage...I'm already running electric fans, so that's not a problem....was wondering if there was any problems with this setup, and what you used for coolant lines and where you ran them....just looking for input....

    I seen a Nissan w/ a SBC stuffed into it that had a bed mounted radiator. He used galvanized pipe to run it to the back. Light gauge like chain link fence pipe. He used hose to connect it at the ends and ran the pipe down the frame.
