The 392 V8's radiator can travel 0-60 MPH in 4.3 seconds. The V6 radiator, not so much.
well to e honest, if i could find something that has better cooling capacity my v6 rad would fly out of the engine bay in less then 4.3 seconds @60mph

You must have figured out something the engineers hadn't considered, like ideal operating temperature.

Yes, like the time they engineered the exploding flywheel clutch combo or maybe the time they engineered the loose steering gears in the steering box . Or maybe, was it the time they engineered a very fragile plastic oil filter cover that guarantees an expensive replacement every few years because the base is made of the same material. My most favorite would be the easy access to the spark plugs though . This is something the engineers have been considering for a while. I f by chance u receive a bad plug .. think about it ...no consideration given . What worries me most though, is the 40 degree temp spikes that occur on hot days at stop lights.

Engineers aren’t perfect. And like most things, are bound by cost. That’s why unfortunate things happen.

Engineers are indeed perfect. It's their management that are flawed. ;) ;)

Supposed to be a different grill and fan on JT I'm not sure what else. This is a picture of my JT's grill if that looks different

The Jalopnik article above shows the subtle differences of the grill. The slots are slightly wider and the grill screen is more open.

The JT grille is exactly the same shape and size, the snap in covers have larger holes. They are interchangeable.

They are larger ...doubt this alone would fix anything as far as my experience tells me.

Well they have the diesel and might eventually put a 392 in the JT. If they do, it makes me wonder about the real reasoning for not offering the 2.0 given the cylinder pressure (and BTU’s) created by the other two at typical tow rpms.
