If your looking into having an after market one made I'd hate to bust your bubble but there is a reason no one is making one. Way to many things attach to the radiator on that truck so the bracketing that have to be fitted, machined or molded in drives up the production cost quite a bit. Also the hose mounts are quick connect style so will require machining as well, the core is so large it will have to be specially made. In order to even have any made you will have a minimum number required to produce. Its honestly not cost feasible to make these, your cost alone will make the final cost for the consumer double if not more than double the price of a OEM replacement. Meaning that your purchasing base will most likely not even cover your overhead and you will lose your investment.

Again not telling you this to rain on your parade but there are companies out there with much more capital who are not doing it for these reasons and they are getting a much better deal than you would on manufacturing and materials. I'd hate to see someone who means well lose a lot of funds chasing after something that will not pay off in the long run.

I believe Mishimoto told me they would have their aluminum 6.4L radiator rolled out by early 2013.

And they might, but look at the 6.0 version they make. Its 1100.00 so its already almost twice the cost of the stock 6.4 one, and keep in mind it doesn't have the machined quick connect hose nipples or any of the associated bracketing as well its over all much smaller in size. I'd be willing to bet that the finished product if it ever makes it to market will be in the 1600-1700 range and most likely short lived due to lack of movement.

You are probably right. I just hate replacing a flawed radiator with another flawed radiator.
