How much are the stats for the 6.4L looks expensive.

Awesome! I recently put a new rad in my 6.4, but there were no mishimotos in stock. I had to have the truck fixed so it got a vista pro. Although they have plastic tanks, they have a lifetime warranty too. Just wish I could have had the mishimotos for a few hundred dollars more.

After owning a 6.0 and now having a 6.4, I'd say that the rad replacement was one of the easiest things I've done so far. Didn't think it would be as easy as it was.

Stats, hoses and cap were $130ish I think?

Worse to do in a 6.0 truck? Given the amount of stuff in the way to get rad in/out its not a bad job. Skinny arms would come in handy in some spots though for sure.

Just general fixes not rad specific. After always fixing my 6.0 and laying over the motor for everything, a 6.4 rad looked like no fun. I was done in a couple hrs.

I noticed my EOT and my ECT are much closer all the way to up to operating temp. Havent seen more then 2-3* difference. I was seeing closer to 10 mostly before.
It runs cooler, cools down faster.....which is normally a good thing but in this weather I want the heat!! (-30*c).
I was breaking trail in about 2.5ft of snow in 4hi today just trying to get it up to temp and couldnt get past 194/196*...
