I didn't but hindsight, I would next time.

The more room you have the better you will be. Take care in the trimming of the brackets that hold the tall trans cooler....if you have one.

Ill have to see how it goes. I have plenty of time. This repair is probably going to take a month or more since I have weekends only to do it and only a couple of hours on the weekend at that to get it done. LOL.

Guy, I need some serious help here. I am trying to install my non traditional bracket, and the guys at BPD and Joe Blow here said I can install this without removing the condenser. Now that I have the grill off, I see absolutely NO WAY WHATSOEVER to make this happen. Can someone give me some more detail on how to do it? Joe Blow, did you rotate your condenser counterclockwise and hold it? I'm finding that the instruction for just about everything BPD has sent me are about 80% baked. LOTS of stuff left out, vague photos and explanations, etc.

Im dead until I figure out how to do this.

@brazosdog02 If you want Joe Blow to see the tag you have to actually tag him with a "@". Like @joe blow . Other than that, I can be of no real help with your dilema.

There isn't a video so far as I know that displays what I am trying to do. I took my bumper off and the radiator support.

Anyway, it doesn't matter now. I think with the bumper off and the radiator support out, I can get it in there. I'm going to take another stab at it this week.

Sorry bud, I have not been on here lately.

When I did the BPD stuff It was difficult to install the conventional condenser bracket but DOABLE. Obviously the radiator has to come out. If I had to do it again I would also remove the bumper and the entire front clip (plastic that houses the headlights). Then and only then will the entire condenser flip up to the right of the truck.

When I yanked my engine, is when I performed the latter....made life easier

Hope that helps

I got the damn thing in but the condenser lines are stretched so far forward that I am genuinely worried that the lines and fittings are going to bust. At teh factory, they install lines that are the proper length for where the condenser, but when you have to pull it forward 2", that's too much.

Is this normal? It's slammed so hard against that unconventional bracket that it rubs on the rivets and power steering lines. Is this normal?

I don't recall my bracket rubbing anything when I put it in and my ac lines definitely weren't stretched to fit

The EGR does to your engine what smoking does to your lungs.

Remember you can always improve on a design until the EPA gets involved.
