Radiator hose clamp favor URGENT

Hey could somebody who still has the factory constant tension hose clamps on their radiator run out and tell me the number on the tab of the clamp on the bottom of the radiator? The part number says it's supposed to be 32 mm but there's no way. A 42 mm won't even fit on it. 47 will, but I'd love to know the definite answer before I put this thing on and fill it up. Thanks so much!!

I just crawled under for ya. With my old eyes and a broken-ass flashlight it looks like "47."
On an '06 4.0L

That's odd, the Mopar Parts Manual says the bottom hose clamp is a 32mm and the top is a 55mm.

Could it be an aftermarket radiator?

27 3200 2983 1 ER0 CLAMP, Hose, 32mm Black
28 3200 2366 1 CLAMP, Hose, 55mm Black

Though it seems like the above answer with 47mm may be what you're looking for.

Click on the below page out of the Mopar parts manual to make it big enough to read.

Fantastic guys, thanks so much for the quick response! I was going to do the 47, glad the hear that's what's on yours. I don't know what's up with the 32 Jerry, I wish I still had the original clamps on mine but before I started doing the work, somebody along the way replaced almost all of them with worm gear clamps. Does yours say 47 on the tab as well Jerry?

Edit: I am replacing a year and half old leaking Griffin with a Mopar radiator. Griffin under warranty thankfully.

Guy on jeepforum says his 2003 says 50 on it. Guess either one would work?

I know that I am late to the party but I have on 03Rubicon that is mint with 24k miles and my clamp looks to say MU with a 50 below it.

The radiator outlet diameter is 1.5 inches. Allowing for the hose thickness, no one with a speck of good sense would suggest a 32mm clamp for that application. (In round figures, 32mm = 1.25 inches.)
