jeep pickup v8 shroud on 78cj5 w/360?

i need a v8 shroud for the 360 in my cj5 and a guy told me he has one off a jeep truck with a 360 in it, will the pickup v8 shroud work in my cj5? will it bolt up directly to my radiator? dont want to buy it and it not fit, thanks in advance

? Do some measuring. Width and height of rad. vs. rectangular hole in shroud. Measure distance from rad. that fan spins in and compare to round portion of shroud. Ask if you can test fit first or return policy. If they won't work with you go some place that will.

why not just order a new one from the Jeep dealer, they arent that muchm, and itll fit for sure.

because honestly my fun loving piece of jeep vehicle keeps me kinda poor : ) and if i can get a shroud in good condition off some one for $25 rather than $70 new than i need to save the money and go with the used one, its hard owning a jeep when your poor but i wouldnt trade her for the world : )

if your that cheap ( I am too) go to Lowes or Home depot, get some flashing and some sheet metal screws and give it hell

its called a "stock car" shroud.. haha

Ozarkjeep's suggestion is a good one. You can produce a professional looking shroud, made to order for only a few dollars worth of flashing material. Four Wheel and Off Road, Jan 2001 issue, page 105 has a good article on fabing up a shroud. I've got it scanned to disk, so if anyone wants it, shoot me an email.

Happy Holidays and Safe Jeepin'

looking to buy a used shroud has nothing to do with being cheap,. if everyone had so much money, we wouildnt be looking to buy each others used parts would we?

well it comes to a point where its either you FIND ONE or you DONT!
many times your forced to spend the $30 extra for a known to fit, good condition shroud, OR your forced to make do with something else.

good luck searching.
