Replacement Radiator

What brand did you buy?

I was going to go back with the he factory junk but people say to but Mishimoto. Looking at reviews on the JK MM radiator on several online retailers, it gets horrible reviews.

You can buy several stock rads for the price of one of those. Same failure rate based on the reviews out there-

Forgot to add I'm on #3.....at 112,000ish miles.

First one was my fault/ran straight water to get home from work and the steam buildup blew out the left side completely-lol.

Got about 50,000 miles on both of those. If this one holds out until I hit 150k I'll be happy.😀

I recently replaced mine with an OEM radiator. I try to stick with genuine Mopar parts. Here's the one I bought https://www.moparpartsgiant.com/part...5056633ab.html

I installed a MM radiator back in February. So far its working great in the 120* heat of Yuma, AZ. I didn't pay for it strait up, got it as a trade but was still new in the box.
