All the ones I've seen have been relocated to behind your head in the center, that way they still get airflow. I had a photo of a Wolverine with this setup in my YXZ Test Ride thread however I think it's disappeared, I'll see if I can find it again.

This is the Wolvy with the radiator in the bed, a pretty useless picture but it looks like the radiator is mounted lower than what I though.

My design will replace the plastic hood completely with a powder coated metal one that has radiator incorporated into it.

The entire hood or just the the removable piece above the battery and fuses? If the entire hood is being replaced, I'm subscribed and want to see this project. Never mind, I want to see this project anyway.

2014 Viking
29.5" x 12" x 12" Outlaws
2 inch lift
Soon to have a full JBS set up and Fusion CDI.

I Live for mud, beer, boobs and good times!...not necessarily in that order.

Yeah x2 can't wait to see it. The Can Am mudder quad bike has the radiator like that, up on top laying slightly up from flat at the back.

It's actually the hood part that is removable and I have had it built for a little while but got side tracked with other projects. I don't have the part fabed up where the radiator will bolt to but when I get down it will all tilt up to allow access to battery and electronics.

This is the starting point. Obviously the radiator will mount above this point at a slight angle. Hoses will come up through this piece to mount to radiator.
