Flex-a-lite® 51168LS Aluminum Radiator with Electric Fan for 72-86 Jeep® CJ Series with LS Engine Conversion

Catalog #: 17800.1128
Flex-a-lite® Part #: 51168LS
Description
Flex-a-lite® now offers a direct-fit Flex-a-fit® 2-row radiator and electric fan system for the ’87-’06 Jeep Wranglers with LS engine conversions. The Wrangler radiator/fan combination replaces the stock 1-row radiator with 2-rows for better cooling, and replaces the stock belt-driven fan for more horsepower, quicker engine warm up and manual override for water crossings. The Flex-a-fit system also eliminates the risk of the belt-driven fan contacting the fan shroud when the body and chassis flex while off-roading.
Details
The dual 1 inch radiator core is hand welded in the U.S. to a slimmer Flex-a-fit side tank. The new Flex-a-fit side tank offers a narrower profile but still utilizes the patented “T” tank technology. The “T” channels offer a durable mounting system for the radiator, electric fan and optional oil cooler or expansion tank. The radiator core is protected while off roading because the electric fan and oil cooler are mounted to the Flex-a-fit sidetank and not through the radiator core. The fully shrouded 15-inch electric fan moves 3,000 cfm and comes pre-mounted to the radiator from the factory. The fan draws 18 amps and includes a control module for adjustable temperature setting and air conditioning relay. A terminal on the controller is also included for a manual override switch.
