New radiator

Since I am new I thought I would ask the folks that know. I have a job 1 2008 fx4 with 148k. Looking at radiator I see 2 plugs look like putty. Mechanic says radiator is holding pressure fine. Question does anyone like griffin make a replacement very good radiator that will out perform the notorious bad factory model ? Thanks for being patient with a newbie

I really like the look of your truck very classy. Since I got a good price when I bought the truck I want to put best parts in as things need replaced

There is an all aluminum rad you can buy that I've seen at some performance shops and also on eBay.

Ones on ebay are for the 7.3 and 6.0 guy said could rig it to fit don't think so. Tried Detroit Radiator they only do big rigs. You would think with the number of these trucks on the road someone would make a decent replacement. Think I will check with some off-road shops and see what they have. Thanks again

I missed the radiator leak when I bought mine , a storm hit 2 minutes before I arrived so everything was dripping... Anyways, just picked up a new upper hose + tstats from rockauto for about $60, and found a used radiator on ebay for $150 which he says is good and pressure tested. Installing this weekend and if everything works out I'll have saved about $1100 bucks over what the dealer wanted.

Going to attempt a driver side blower door motor install also once the radiator is done.............................................. ......................

Well sir looks like you made out good deal. I just want to upgrade each part that needs replaced. I sent the following to Bullet Proff Diesel and this was their response. Maybe if there is a demand we will get a Bullet Proof Radiator ?

Hi Mike,
At this time I do not have a upgraded radiator for the 6.4L. I am in the works with our radiator supply house to get some all aluminum radiators for the 6.4L. If you want I can put you on the list for one of those. If there is anything else I can do to help, I would be glad to. Thanks
