    Ok i think I have replaced everything I can but the Radiator...

    I have replaced 3 T-stat. 2 Caps, coolant/water/waterwetter.
    and rebuilt the fan clutch...

    When it get hot or the truck is under load, it starts to over heat.
    I toss on the heater and things go back to normal...

    I am 99% sure the Radiator is now blocked and clogged and just can not disapate the heat any longer.

    So who makes a good radiator?
    i know the single Row OEM unit did great for 11 years and 116K miles.

    Did the v-6 and 4WD drives have a larger 2row? if so will they fit?
    I sorta think they will not.

    I see Radiator barn has 2 choices.
    a signle row an a 2 row about $40 differance in price.

    is $180 a good price?

    The 2 row will keep you soooo cool... for $40, I would do it in a heartbeat if you plan on keeping for a while.

    LCEngineering is the shit. But a bit pricey. The quality is there though.
