On my fan shroud i have the heater outlets, but they just poor air out the back of the motor. should i plug them with freeze plugs or should i let them be? I have heard that one is better and vice versa. so what do you guys think? This is a baja forum, and all of you have them so i figured that you would know.

Plug them up so air will rush down over your cylinders.

guys i swear this is a true story.

my brother had a 95 cherokee with a big lift and a set of super swampers. it was a sweet jeep. he was driving home from corpus christi(about 4 hours) and his drive shaft broke off at the u-joint Surprised . what he did was reatached the u-joint with duct tape, threw her into 4wd and drove another three hours home Laughing !

to this day either of us don't drive without duct tape in the car.

I made a water pump belt for my Landcruiser out of duct tape one time. It got me off the mountain and home so I was happy.
