The radiator was fine, hardly any dirt or mud on front grille. It handled that water and mud with no problem, the power range just kept pulling through it all. The mud does get thrown all over the back fenders and door nets but that is in part of the different offset on the rims which put the tires out another 2 inches on each side.Now that looked like fun! Just curious but I know the mud looked pretty thin but how did the Ace do as far as plowing and throwing mud up in/on the front of it? How'd the radiator hold up? One of my concerns is seems like the radiator is up, but is really close to the grill. Doesn't look like it's got much protection .
