Hey guys

I recently purchased an 04 WJ Limited 4.7 HO for cheap that had been smashed a deer. I ended up getting an all aluminum eBay radiator and used hydraulic fan/shroud assembly. Just went to bolt them up and the radiator doesn't line up with the shroud and mounting points properly. Looks like I could make it work by trimming off the top of the shroud so I can slide it down about an inch...my question is will this affect the balance of the assembly? Apparently the fan, motor and shroud are all balanced together as a unit and I don't want to ruin it by removing some of the plastic

Not sure how much your planning on cutting, but I remember trimming a little bit off the shroud as well when I replaced my radiator in order to be able to slide it into the spot. I never had any temperature control issues afterwards.
