Look very closely around the perimeter for any cracks. Do you know what Job # the truck came off? If you can, find out the build date for the truck it came off. The Job 1 trucks had a lot of radiator issues.

Jan-Jun 07 Job 1
July-Dec 07 Job 2
Jan 08+ Job 3

As far as price, I would think it would be worth maybe $300ish. For $1,000-$1,200, you can get an aftermarket radiator.

i would sell it for 300-350 if its in real good shape. if the fins have some damage then 250. problem is its a used item with no warranty so you won't get top dollar
