Aftermarket Oil Cooler

So I've had the ol leaky oil cooler for some time now. Been delaying doing the job but it's finally time.

Has anyone used a napa oil cooler or any other aftermarket cooler vs paying the big bucks from ford?

1995 f-350, 108,000 miles and climbing, second motor with approximately 130,000 miles on it.

DIY Intake, stage 2 injectors from Rosewood, 3" DP to 5"side dump with a 6" Tip

HPOP, 6.0 IC (anyone have a spyder?) and E fuel to come

You can reseal the cooler. No need to replace the whole thing

Its a pretty shady looking cooler, looks like its rotting etc. If my truck were a southern truck with no rust, id agree. But without being certain, my first instinct with this cooler is it should be replaced.

If it is in decent shape I will re-seal it and keep it as a spare.

I appreciate your advice tho.

I'm not sure you can get one through Napa, I tried and couldn't. I think Alliant power makes one, not sure.
