    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.
    I got an OEM. Whole setup, everything needed. In a bag, just needs a box and a stamp.
    In south OC, if you want to save postage.

    If you look at the B&M cooler it has ‘Tru-Cool’ stamped on it. Buy a Tru-Cool from Amazon or E-Bay and save about $40.00. The plate and fin models cost even less.
    Purchase a more durable stacked plate model #4589 in the 8.5x11x1.5 inch thickness or model #4590 in 11x11x1.5 inch thick which will also fit in the Tacoma.
    The picture is from the back of the box of the stacked plate cooler I recently purchased and installed in my truck.

    C635ED0A-2528-4F8D-B3F4-FA9A4C0766E4.jpg I understand. If you were in the Portland area I’d deliver my small OEM cooler and bracket to you for free!
    If you are retrofitting I’m guessing that you’ll need to route hoselines from your radiator cooler to the stock one in front of your radiator. Aftermarket is the way to go. It’s easy to make your own brackets or have someone else do it for you out of Home Depot aluminum strips. No one except you will ever know. The dealer won’t care and and a larger cooler is a big improvement over stock and won’t void your warranty if that’s a concern.
