replacement radiator recommendatoins

Tried searching for this, but didn't have any luck.

I need to replace the radiator on my '97 3.4L 4WD auto. I haul a dirt bike and tow a pop up trailer with it. Wondering where and what you guys recommend to get?

Not sure if one brand is better than the other or not. As long as it's OEM or equivalent I say go for it? Napa, Carquest, Performance Radiator.

In all seriousness, I agree with at least oem, if not a little larger if it fits due to the towing

I'm checking out the size specs. I definitely don't want to get one smaller. Haven't had a problem towing with the OEM radiator.

Thanks, I'll look into those. Noticed you mentioned Performance Radiator. When I googled Tacoma radiators, they were the first to pop up in the search. I've never heard of them. Not a bad price, plus they offer free shipping and I like their warranty.
