Re: 05-10 grc bottom lower opening

My guess is that if you covered that space you would severely hinder the cooling ability of your radiator. That opening is there for a reason. The only thing you could really do is maybe a wire mesh or expanded sheet metal.

Re: 05-10 grc bottom lower opening

Quite a few people have covered this space with a diamond pattern mesh (looks pretty good, IMO).

If you search around, I am sure you will find a few threads about how to do it. It is a pretty simple mod.

Thank you for your input.I didn't want to completely cover it, just something there to not let bags,or big trashy stuff get in there

Re: 05-10 grc bottom lower opening

Putting in the insert like pictured above will not negatively impact cooling performance. The overlands have this covering from stock. In fact, if anything it is a little bit safer, as you don't run the risk of a rock hitting your lower rad.
