    radiators

    Hey, need a new rad for an 05 TJ 4L. Any one have any suggestions on brand and where to get one in the Hamilton and GTA area?

    Going to call Dewildt in the morning for OEM pricing, i figure the original lasted 9.5 years and 370 000 kms so they can't be that bad.

    Would like some other options incase the OEM is a retarded price. Already checked 4wheel parts $330 CDN for Omix ada

    The Are Cheap at any Discount Auto parts store however I recommend going with an all Metal Rad in either stock 2 core or upgraded 3 core... They are not easy to get this side of the border unless you know where to get one...

    I run the All metal 3 Core in my MJ and Would NEVER run a Cheap aluminum/plastic one ever again...

    I am not sure if this will work for your year tj however I ended up replacing my 97 tj rad with a rad from a yj. Got it for about 100bucks new and its all metal.

    Thanks guys. The Tj is my daily driver so i needed one quick. The top cap split on the original. I picked up a Specter one for $120 .
    The dealer wanted $380, and i couldn't get an all aluminium rad quick enough.
