Owners of ’72-’86 Jeep CJs know how hard it is to find a performance cooling system that is as capable and durable as their Jeep. That’s about to change as Flex-a-lite is now shipping its all-new, bolt-in Flex-a-fit radiator and electric fan combo for these vehicles! And there are configurations available to fit CJs with stock engines and also to accommodate the popular GM and Ford V-8 engine conversions.The core of this combo is a Flex-a-fit radiator featuring dual 1-inch all-aluminum radiator core that is hand-welded in the U.S. to the Flex-a-fit sidetanks 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 is mounted to the Flex-a-fit sidetank and not through the radiator core. 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. With this latest introduction Flex-a-lite now covers thirty years of Jeep CJs and Wranglers.

The Flex-a-fit radiator is available with or without a fully shrouded 15-inch Flex-a-lite electric fan that moves 3,000 cfm and comes pre-mounted to the radiator from the factory. The fan draws 19.5 amps and includes a control module for adjustable temperature setting and air conditioning relay. A terminal on the controller allows you to connect a manual override switch to turn the fan off for water crossings. Our optional 20-ounce overflow tank (part #32013) can be added to the sidetank channel as well.
