Do you not want better cooling? The early TJ's had a 2 core and because of overheating problems switched over to a single core pretty early on.

Remember that you get what you pay for. Read up on here about replacement radiators and you may change your mind about a cheap radiator.

X2. And it's a single core radiator, no matter if it has 1,2, or 3 rows inside that core. The OE radiator started with 2 rows but went to a single aluminum row in the early 2000's for better cooling. More rows do not necessarily mean better cooling, all that depends on the type of use the vehicle is used for and the dimensions of the core and its row(s) inside.
