I highly doubt it. I've driven with mine through SoCal, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas...my temp gauge needle has never budged from it's normal spot on the gauge. Look at how many other vehicles that are out there that have even more restrictive grilles. And my grille is much more restrictive than most others i've seen on other Jeeps.
Thanx a lot. I will feel more comfortable doing it to mine now. I live in florida it gets hot but I'm sure not as hot as it gets out there. Thanx again and your grill looks killer. Nice job!!!
I did not get the track bar yet but i will someday. The ride is way better then stock so think about getting the nitro shocks if you havent already.
Im also looking to add the quick disco's. Will you be doing the install?
Yep, I'm doing the install myself and I did get the nitro shocks. I didn't get the trackbar either. I wanted to just wait and see how it panned out. I've got a Rubi with the e-disco on the swaybar so I didn't get disconnects.
You're not the only one that's told me that the ride is better than stock. I'm wondering if that will still be the case for me since I have the rubi shocks and some stiffer springs (18/59) already.
Added a pair of velcro straps from Home Depot to hold the top more neatly as suggested by another member the other day, makes a huge difference.
Then picked up a buddy and cruised downtown to have a couple of beers on a patio in the sunshine (showing off my new wheels might have been a minor ulterior motive).
I just came back from Hobby Lobby with two packages of velcro straps (totaled $1.50 plus tax, they are on sale for 50% off)...to do the same thing. Much cheaper than a boot, and come winter time, the soft top will be easier to manage.
Took wife Loretta and her namesake Jeep to Moab for a cruise thru Long Canyon....Not bad for a Wednesday morning....met 4 folks from the Netherlands at the BIG fallen rock. They were headed up, we were headed down. Nice folks and they knew their Jeeps.

SO JEALOUS!!! Not one legal spot here in the whole state of MD except for a stupid beach thats 3 hours away...going Saturday though to Rausch Creek in PA with a big group to pop my cherry!!!
Well, it wasn't exactly a legal place for me to play... haha... its just a regular park with bike trails...
We have to drive about an hour and a half to get to the nearest 4x4 park. There is no public land around here either to just go play around on. Everything is private. Pay to play. It really sucks, and I feel your pain!
This is my Jeep. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
