aftermarket radiators

I recently cracked my radiator after overheating on the trails. because it cracked so easily I'm thinking of getting an aftermarket aluminum radiator. I was wondering who has gotten one and which would be the best for my 05Tj?

This is what I put in my tj when my old one went bad.

Had no problems with it. Fit right in. Was at my door in 2 days after ordering. I don't have a ton of experience with radiators. But I am very happy with it and its price.

Is there a reason why the year models stop at 04? And that is a damn good price id say!

Not sure. Mine is an 02 so I never looked into any farther. I am sure there is someone out there that can complain about this radiator but I have none.

Hm.. yeah I see what you're saying, 03-06 should all be the same so if they have one for 04 it should fit :/
