e-bay aluminum 3 core radiators

Anyone here have experience with the inexpensive 3 core aluminum radiators on e-bay? At half the price of the name brand ones I am a bit concerned but thought it may be worth a shot. It's either that or an OEM style replacement. I can't dish out $300-$400 for a radiator. Anyone?

I did not have good luck with the Chinese Ebay rads, they replaced my first leaking one no problem, but it didn't last much longer and it was a pita to keep replacing it. I went with the Griffin 1 core off road rad. It has been great, no leaks and it keeps my jeep cool even in the desert where most of my wheeling is done.

Good info. I may just go with an OEM type replacement.

I don't have one personally but I've heard a lot of good things about champion.
if I was looking for one I'd give them a try.
