How-To Diesel Swap a Cherokee – Coolant System and Intercooler – Part 6

This time we’re talking about cramming all those fancy finned aluminum boxes up behind the grill. Will they all fit in there?
Here are some common questions about this stage of the swap that we’ll talk about:
Can you use the XJ radiator?
Is the stock radiator too large or small for the TDI?
Are the outlets in the right place?
Do you have to relocate the radiator?
Can you still fit an AC condenser?
How large of an intercooler can fit, and where to mount it?
How did you route the hoses?
Should I buy cheap silicone?

This one is a real information dump, and answers a ton of helpful tech info that could otherwise slow down your swap progress significantly. Cozy up with a note pad to watch this one and hit that SAVE button cuz this is one you’re gonna refer back to a bunch!
