Can I use the radiator from a Toyotsa FJ on my TJ?



Hi,

I having some issues on summer due to the high temperatures (almost 126 F) with my TJ, and somebody told me that the Toyota FJ radiator will fit in the Jeep TJ and this will solve all my heating issues.

What do you think?

you can certainly make anything fit if you're competent with cutting/grinding/fabrication/welding.

It might work but you'll get stuck a lot.

Well all you have to do is look at the mounting points and the dimensions of the radiators and see how close they are in comparison. I personally can not see how one will fit the other without having to do a bunch of mods like cutting and welding and I don't really see how this would be better than just buying a new radiator made for the Jeep.
