I need to get a new one too. Ive looked into em a little bit and the best one I have found is by SCF imports. DPG offroad offers it, but i talked to dirk today and he dosent know when he's getting anymore in. At $165 + the quality of the product, I will be waiting til he gets some more. just my $.02

That one should serve you just fine. I replaced mine recently because it was practically bleeding fluid.

I have the two row in mine, as I read someplace the two row cools better than the three. Got mine from the place in your link. Works just fine.

Got mine through my mechanic so I don't know where it came from. It's aluminum. Works just fine so far, after a year. All metal is better than plastic.
I'm not gonna go over that......

got mine through the radiatorbarn site works great. all metal (allum) 2row. jerry (I think, maybe Mr. C) was the one who suggested getting the 2 row, said that the 3 just wasn't worth it that the 2 would work just fine, and so far it has done its job better than I expected. quick and easy install and it came in about a week or a little over but all and all very satisfied.

Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
