    The absolute best solution obviously, is replace with a KOYO rad without a built in cooler and then run an external cooler.

    But if I wanted to just do the rad then I would go with the Koyo A1998 as listed in Ripcord's thread?

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    Nice! I'm a little jealous. My 98 is getting a cheap lift to start out- Revtek spacer front, OME coil/5100s rear; but that will probably be ditched down the road for bigger and better things... SAS. :D

    Well if your going to do the SAS no point in nice coilovers now. I'm interested in how these icons will be compared to the kings I had on my taco. I did have Sonny soften up the low speed dampening on these so they should be pretty smooth, I guess my suspension can handle armor now ;)
