It's me.....I did this modification to my bumper to get more air to the lower portion of the radiator....look at your bumper, and then look at this picture of mine, and you'll see why...... :
I moved the license plate down, and after removing the plastic crap, drilled two holes in the bottom corners of where I wanted the opening to be, and then cut them out with a sawzall .....after I got it all cut out and smoothed up, I painted the openings with flat black spray paint.....the bottom of the radiator is where the cooled water flows back into the water pump......I decided a little better air flow there would help....have no way to tell how much it helps, but it cools well......
P.S. you will also note that my trans cooler (Tru-Cool Max # 47391) is mounted behind the Grille...had to grind off the back of the grille to put it there, but that's where I wanted it, as I did not want it in front of the lower portion of the radiator....
Different, yes, but it all works well.....
