Hey, I'e got a problem with over heating. Do a lot of running in the mud and muddy water. Thinking of moving radiator to the back, but heard the stock radiator is not really big enough. Any suggestions? Been looking at a PWR.

Thanks, Zack

The rad is likely partially plugged.
Also try Evans coolant.

I'm sure it has dirt and mud in it that you can't see. I take mine completely out and wash it with the fan off.

I would also bet it is plugged. I will also say we have installed the PWR on our 2009 with an 840 kit. The Fan is much larger, the fan shroud is much larger, the radiator holds more coolant and the fan pulls way more air through the radiator. The PWR will run cooler then the stock radiator no question.
