    I can't help but notice that your user name is tundra3400, If your interrested I will need to to find out if the plate will mount the same between the V6 to V8 radiators because the part#'s are different from V6 to V8 but all yrs are the same from 2000-2006.

    I am just wondering if you have to drain cooling system to take shroud off the Gen1 like you do on the Gen2 and if I had the shroud I could make the plates and find a member that wants to do this so I could have the cooling fan assembly paid for and then use his truck to do the fitment.

    I had to pull the upper radiator hose to pull my shroud out.

    You need to drain out a little from the cooling system to remove the shroud. I drained out about a half a coffee can's worth of fluid when I removed my shroud today. One thing that I forgot to do was to place washers back on the studs for the water pump pulley and WOW I knew it RIGHT AWAY. Running without the stock clutch fan and while moving the truck runs the same temperature as before - 192 degrees. Stopped, in a drivethrough, the truck got up to 202 degrees. Outside temperature was 45 degrees.

    I will sell the kit with controller and everything for the first one as a courtesy for $350.00 and I will not be making much as I will be buying a shroud and then research time and then the time to do the drawings. but it will be a complete bolt on all connections made and the plate will be powder coated.

    Awesome, I was wondering if you'd try this. So far it's been a worthwhile mod and I'm looking forward to an electric fan for next summer. Btw, LOL at the water pump pulley

    The noise it made scared the hell out of me. Glad I caught it right away otherwise it could have been serious. Truck seems to run with a little more power and definitely revs faster. Could be all psychological but the mileage is better already.

    I just don't feel like there kit is designed for the truck as it doesn't cover the radiator, but I guess you can't look a gift horse in the mouth!

    good eye texasranger, and what kind of dimensions/info will you need in order to replicate the plate?

    I just need a shroud as that is how we did the drawings of the Gen2 kit.

    I would be inclined to agree with you but I have a reservation about this. It is my opinion that there are two factors at play here. First, the radiator is over-sized for the truck which is a good thing when people actually use it to tow with. Second, cooling is a function of air passing through the radiator so unless the shroud has space to allow the air to pass through all of the radiator it is not necessary to cover the entire surface area of the radiator.

    Just my two coppers for what they are (or are not) worth

    idk if i could take mine off and send it to you so that you could dimension it. i was looking at the cost of a new shroud and its $83 for one shroud and $13 for a second shroud. im not sure if they both are needed but im guessing that the $83 one is the one you would need.

    When you get this mod up and running send me a message. I plan on buying one before spring.
