Restore flush alternative?

After calling all my local parts stores, both Dodge dealers in the area, two Cummins service centers, and my local Fleet Pride, NO ONE HAS RESTORE! wtf...........


Is there an alternative that can be used? I looked at the Fleetguard site, and read about the chemical make up of Restore. I cant seem to find the same properties in any other coolant flush. Most of them talk about cleaning out oil/grease and scaling/rust.

There has to be another brand of flush that has the same properties?!

I had a ton of problems trying to get it from fleetpride or any of the dealers listed on fleetguards website. I called cummins and they knew exactly what I was talking about. They had 2200 Restore in stock and 700 Restore plus. I sure wished I had called them first.
