Does the radiator mount directly to the frame?

    Hello. I lost both of my Dad's biological and stepfather over the last 3 years.

    My biological father left me his Jeep CJ5 Renegade 1980. My Dad was elderly and I am trying to go through it as I am not sure what his capabilities were.

    I have questions, one specifically now.

    Does the radiator mount directly to the frame? or is there a rubber type buffer kit that bolts in between , that I can install? Thanks

    Radiator mounts directly to frame. There aren't any factory bushings, isolators or radiator support on the CJ or YJ.
