Flex-a-lite Radiators

Thinking about changing out my stock radiator for a Flex-a-lite Radiator, I have a 2014 JKUX. If you have one, please give me your thoughts. I figure that all aluminum would transfer heat better.

I would stick with OEM.

Okay, I'm gonna be the bad guy here and ask: Why?

Does your Jeep run hot? Are you having problems with overheating? I'm not knocking you, but I've lived in FL, TX, SC and LA and haven't ever considered buying an aftermarket radiator.

Seems like good money that could be spent on tires or a lift. Again, I may be totally wrong here, and missing the point entirely. If that's the case, please let me know...

Since your jeep is a 2014, have you considered the warranty? If you ever have overheating problem that damages the engine, chrysler might bitch about the new radiator and you'd have to fight to make them pay for the repairs.

In my opinion, if it aint broken, dont fix it!
