You wanna see what just pissed me off?

You see that little black spot on the road??? That's a little bit of coolant coming from my 2nd radiator...

First one was replaced under warranty but this one I'm guessing will not be.

Griffin radiators. You will have to send in your radiator and they will build you an all aluminum radiator. It will be pricey, and a pain in the *** to send it in and wait for the replacement, but it will be the last radiator ever put in your truck

Thanks for the tip but I can't afford the downtime or the really expensive.

Hey man look at the vista pro replacement. Part number 438400. Summit racing has it for a little over 600. I have heard nothing but good things about them and i heard they have a lifetime warranty. Im not sure about the warranty tho.

Thanks fatboy. I've got a friend looking into it for me locally and I called 1800radiator and they want 800. If my friend can't get one I'll probably order that one. I'm going to try to put it in myself.
