Radiator Leaking

I've noticed a coolant smell from my truck for the last month or so but could never find a leak well yesterday while I was checking everything I found it the top plastic part of the rad is leaking where its sealed to the aluminum part.

Checked with my local NAPA and they had a new one for $210 but was wondering should I try to find an ALL-Aluminum Rad or just stick with the OEM style which did last 10 yrs and 212k ??

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

Personally I would stick with what has lasted the longest. A All Aluminum rad would look sweet but it also depends on how much money you want to spend...
