ebay / aluminum radiators

Post  Mark on 4/8/2016, 5:00 pm

Anybody replaced their radiator with a 2 or 3 row all aluminum one like the units on ebay ?
I'm going to ned a radiator soon and i've seen stock replacement units on ebay for as little as 55 dollars and all aluminum units for 125 and up.
I found some nice looking all aluminum units for 160.

This one looks like the one i'll get.

The winch, license plate, a/c condenser are all hindering air flow and the fact that the radiator is clogging up is causing it to run a bit too hot on the highway in summer.

Was keeping an eye on this just because I plan to replace my radiator as well. Pinhole leak in the bottom. Was looking at at least a 2 row since Winch is blocking front cooling now (although my engine has never run hot before).
Only reason I havent done it yet to give you feedback is I blew a piston last week of February and its pretty bad so Im actually doing an engine fix, so ill wait til its in before even touching the radiator.
The 3 rows is probably best bet for you. I dont have a/c so ill probably just grab a 2 row unless i find a good deal.

Just had winning bid on radiator,$165.00, 3 row all aluminum 2.2 inch wide core.
I'll keep you posted as to how it fits and quality of product.

I'm considering complementing radiator with their electric fan/shroud.
