Radiator Question

The radiator in my 1991 YJ with a 4.0 needs to be replaced. I work part-time at the local NAPA and the radiator listed for a 1991 is aluminum with plastic tanks. The radiator for a 1990 YJ is copper and brass. Will the 1990 radiator work in my 1991? I am not sure about running plastic tanks in a Jeep. By looking at the pictures and measurements on the 1990 radiator it looks as if it will fit.

I have a 90 Yj w/ I6 I'll measure my distance between top two bolts and pass side top to bottom. They are 24 3/8 inches across the top and like 13 3/8 inches from top to bottom. This is the bolts to mount the rad to chassis. if you need fan cowling let me know I hope this helps.

Might want to double check the catalog. 91-95 all had the same 4.0 and my 94 definetly has no plastic either in the OEM rad or the replacment. Thought the plastic tops were a TJ thing.

I checked the NAPA catalog again today and the radiators from 1990-1992 are shown as having plastic tanks. I ordered one today with plastic tanks and a aluminum body. It has a limited lifetime warranty. My cost is $122.00.
