radiator...quetions...1990 yj 4.2 automatic

my radiator is in sad shape ....I need to replace it...I also pull a exmark lawnmower during the summer but I havent tried it with the jeep...my question is should I just replace it with a factory style radiator and add a transmission cooler or will it do fine with out the cooler.
where is a good place to get a radiator...I priced a radiator for $153.00 today.

I bought mine on e-bay something less than $100. Amazing thing was the auction closed on Friday Ithink and Saturday morning it was delivered to the house.

I run a man trans. All of the aftermarket radiators are plumbed with the tranny cooling lines (one radiator does both).

Don't know about extra coolers.

It never hurts to add an auxiliary cooler when you are wheeling or towing. Heat is what kills trannys so any bit of pretection you can get is good. I need to do sone digging, but I once found an aluminum racing radiator for about the same price as a replacement stocker. Better cooling, no corrosion, and the same price. You will definately need an aftermarket tranny cooler though. I am pretty sure it was a griffen radiator. You will need to fab up some mounts because it doesn't have any.
