Fan Shroud

Hello Im a newby to the Jeep world and loving it. I snagged a CJ 7 for a good deal with more on it than I could ever get by without my wife freaking out.

Question: It has a 350 chevy v8 in it and an aluminum afcoradiator 24 by 19 inches. I need a fan shroud for this but not sure what to get. I see Summitt has an adjustable one that you cut out etc. I am not sure if this will work due to how much space is between the radiator and fan. Any suggestions on where to look. I would like something less than $100.

See pics!

I wanted to get a good look at the undercarriage
I could use a front window frame if anyone has one that they would sale!

Nice pics. You could have cleaned the bottom and spayed some nice undercoating and paint.

Fan shroud since it has a new engine tough to find. Here is a suggestion I saw here was a guy had SBC and had electric fans but needed a little bit of a shroud. Very ingenious he used a smooth black plastic trash can $10 at hardware store and fabricated his own. The curve was good and it was cheap. Just a thought. Love the CJ!!!

That is nice thanks for the input. I was thinking of finding an aluminum cookie sheet that would fit, cut the hole and put a diamond plate strip around the fan.
