Wrangler overheated, need radiator. But where to buy ? Advice appreciated.

Hello to the Jeep community!

Forgive me if I've posted in the wrong forum category, as I wasn't sure what the appropriate one for my post would be.

Just yesterday, my 04 Wrangler X (4.0L 6 cylinder) overheated on me while on the road. Immediately, this brought my attention to the radiator and when I had the chance to inspect the part, I found signs of coolant leakage as well as damaged fins. Now I need to replace the part, and I've narrowed it down to two sites that I particularly liked. Now the problem is, I don't know if they are legitimate vendors. I've been scammed in the past and I can't afford for it to happen again, so I'd just like verification before I make a purchase. Anyone ever dealt with

I don't know about the ones you listed either, but I bought my CSF all metal radiator from radiatorbarn.com. Like Linda, I experienced very good service from these folks. The all metal CSF is a popular replacement for when the factory one craps out.

Mine split and was leaking yesterday. I didn't have time to wait on a cheaper mail order, my local Carquest Distribution Center had six in stock, I went ahead and paid the $165.99 so I can replace this afternoon.

Get the all aluminum radiator. The stock one likes to come apart where it is PRESSED together. All metal one is welded.
