my engine just bent a blade last week, and ate my radiator, wasn't running it hard at all! didn't have a shroud on it, not sure what happened. fan clutch seemed to have a slight amount of play, so I put a new one on. just don't truck electric fans for towing yet.
no idea if this is common or not.

You forgot to tell them that the truck you passed pulled you home on the trailer. :w: You should make you truck go faster than 80 that way I can't pass you back next time. :na: What a fun night that was.

looked a little closer and think the motor mounts are the cause of thr problem. the engine moves forword and to the pasenger side a lot when u load it down.

my buddy replaced 3 radiators in his jeep because of motor mounts being bad. i told him the first time he didn't believe me. jack your engine with a floor jack and see if there is any cracks. just think if you broke something that means your doing something.

I would check out the transmission mount its commonly overlooked, and when they fail they can cause more stress on the motor mounts as well....just my two cents
