tmcd94 I flushed out the radiator and it was extremely dirty water coming out at first, then cleared up. And I was expecting to have to get a larger radiator for the bigger engine. Im probably going to a car swap meet tomorrow and will try to sell it there

jokerchief462 If you are putting a 5.0 in a Jeep get a three row rad. You could clean the old one up and sell it. Your going to need a little more cooling capacity.

Hockeygeek21 Its probably just rust, flush it out and un hook the top and bottom hose. Then take the garden hose and put it in the top part and run it till it comes out clear

Muddy radiator

Im in the process of taking out my engine and took a look in the radiator and it looked like it was just full of mud. This is my first jeep but previously working on my bike I knew that you couldnt even use tap water because it could ruin the radiator. So Im guessing that Im going to need to replace this radiator. Just would like to hear what you guys think and whats a good replacement radiator. Im swapping a 5.0l in her if that makes a difference
