Radiator options for small block

I want to replace the undersized radiator in the Jeep I just bought. I am looking for just an everyday driver replacement. Meaning I do not want to add electric fans or anything of that nature. Can someone please offer a suggestion for a cheap replacement with a built in transmission cooler for the automatic transmission?

The engine is a Chevy 307 small block.

The cheapest "bolt in" conversion radiator I found was 200 may get one just shy of two off eBay but mine came from amazon. I've heard of using s10 radiators or Camaro or lumina but there not drop in peices. Also could do a universal radiator from summit or similar place that's the size to fit it the grill. About the shroud, lots of people say you have to have one, but my good Freind has a yj with a 350 and was running a tiny radiator about the size of a stock jeep unit and a mechanical fan with no shround. His never ran hot and it solely and off road rig, stretched with tons and driven hard. Now is it the best way, prolly not but it worked fine for him
