BBF radiator clearance

Just thought I'd post up a pic of the radiator mocked up in my truck. #1 question guys have asked me was if there was going to be any room left up front....yep. This is recessing the rad into the core support and not cutting the firewall. Seems to be plenty of room left for 2 electric fans.

Wow... that's pretty impressive that there is still that much room. You going to have any trouble running that hose? It kind of looks like it's aiming right at the pulleys, but that could just be th perspective of the picture.

That rad hose outlet is actually pointed at that valvecover. The t-stat housing and it are at almost exactly the same height.

I have 2 12" electric fans that I have test fit in there. There's not a *whole* lot of room left, but it's not so close it's dangerous or anything.
