well got a dual pass 19hx31w aluminum radiator off of Jegs, i trimmed some of the sheet metal on the front clip and got almost 4in of space in between the pulleys and the core. it is slanted about 15 deg to gain a bit more room. i hope this is enough cooling for the cumming but that was the biggest radiator i could squeeze in there. the intercooler should be interesting but i plan to mount it low like they do on the 2013+ ram diesels.

Any other cummins swap guys have any trouble with cooling?

In my experience, Cummins engines generate so little heat that even a smallish radiator will be fine. But always go with the biggest one you can fit. Better to have more cooling capacity than you need than the opposite.

well been a busy month. I havent gotten to work on the old girl as much as i wanted. started fabbing up the cage and seat mounts. i ended up removing the windshield latches so the a pillar would fit tighter. i got 2 mastercraft seats and with them mocked up into place i decided i needed a tilt steering column. the side support on the seats made it to hard to get in and out. i may have to shorter the window roller handles beacuse they touch the cage with the door closed. small problems but no big hassle.

the cage is 1.75 120 wall dom and the less important parts are 1.5 120 wall hrew. im going to tie the cage into the frame

so tilt steering column mock up went great. its the jegs 28 in bare steel 1"dd column $285. it uses a standard gm plug so wiring will be easy but it fits prefect the firewall fitting will be easy to modify and just a bit of gringing to the dash. you can see the markings for grinding in the photos. i think when its painted it will look stock and a good easy upgrade for anybody who wants to do it . the stock mounting fits perfectly
