Default HD fan shroud mod for quick removal

credit here goes to uss2defiant for the info on how to do this, just providing more info here on how to do it.

this is a MUST if you have the heavy duty cooling system (if you ask me) the heavy duty cooling has the electric fan and a huge shroud with a clutch fan.
the shroud cannot be removed until the clutch fan is loose, which is hard to do with the shroud there...

first remove the fan shroud (and clutch fan).
your shroud will look like this:


cut off about half and inch of material from the bottom lip of the shroud where the taper stops. i drilled a hole at each corner and used a jig saw and reciprocating saw to do it.

end result:


now the shroud can be removed with the clutch fan installed. just half and inch of material is all it takes!

Same idea as the CRD. I kept the lower section for our iceberg puddle refreezing break-up season. Serpentine iceberg encounters can only be bad.


Ahhh, I now see you get to keep some shield on the bottom. Cool!

i think the tricky part is getting the right sequence of the sides to pass the tranny cooler lines and the upper radiator hose.

Definitely is, once you wiggle it a few times back and forth it clears past those though

I had to do the same thing. A lot easier to get it out of the way know.
