Bodylift radiator relocation

After seeing a few of the body lift photos from the massive number of body lifts going on in the forums, I think I screwed up on mine. Can anyone post pics of their radiator relocation from under the hood and ground-level at the front bumper?

I'm pretty sure I did mine wrong, or at least missed something. The lower plastic piece and one of the two radiator-looking things is visible beneath the bumper on mine and I haven't seen that on anybody else's. My kit was already missing lower radiator mount drop brackets, I'm wondering if there wasn't something else they forgot to include in the packing or something in the instructions I might have skipped or just simply screwed up on.

I have a thread somewhere with pics on how to leave the rad in its original place. Just turn the plastic fan shroud upside down, it fits great and it keeps your rad from hanging so low.

I think I figured it out. I dropped the radiator, I think I needed to just drop the upper shroud and possibly just remove the lower one. I'd take more photos but I left my camera at work. Somebody slashed my tonneau cover thursday night, insurance is gonna cover it though.
