Radiator and fan change 2014 to 2015

I am removing the radiator on my 2011 to send to Myler's for straightening and repair of several in-the-field JB Weld repairs.

I haven't seen any posts on this, but doing a little research I noticed that the radiator and radiator fan have changed for 2015. The legs of the fan mounting bracket go to different pionts on the radiator and the mounting tabs on the radiator are formed differently and relocated to match the fan bracket. The top tanks are shaped a little differently.

It appears that the fan motor and blades can be switched between the two brackets, but if you are replacing the radiator or fan with a different year model, you will need matching parts.

That took a fairly 'keen eye' to spot, GoMotor.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
