Go to a screen shop & have some made. I tried the perferated panel type screens & found them in summer heat & BIG moutains pass's to be too restrictive. These custom built window screens have worked KILLER !!

Planning on doing the Al-Can Highway next year and was worried more about the stones kicking up than heat issues. At 24k I already have a few hits. Do you still have the panel ones, if so let me know I'll buy them from you?.....

Thumbs up Saved a radiator

Gene Sweeney Jr.'s guards stopped a foreign object from penetrating the radiator. Bent , battrred but not penetrated. Saved the day, and the trip.
Haven't had the overheating Scott experienced (but then again , here in Tejas, my fans ran ALOT this summer!!)
