Radiator plumbing ??

Moved radiator behind cab this weekend, trying to get more wieght towards rear of the truck. -16 or -20 AN hose or 1" heater hose would work as well. Heater hose is cheaper but not as safe. What are any of u using? Going to need around 14 to 18ft of hose.

I havenít personally done it, but Iíve seen short (~12Ē) rubber heater hose to exhaust pipe, then back to rubber. Or I guess you could weld an AN fitting to each end of pipe, and use short AN lines, for more security.

Lonco, thought about the exhaust pipe, but that adds more weight back. Will probably go AN to match all the rest of the plumbing on the truck. Plus feel safer since my son drives the truck most of the time.
