semi urgent radiator question.

This isnt my normal section (6.0) but im a body man and im repairing this truck.....the condenser and front radiator were damaged in the wreck, but my question is the rear radiator looks like it has been leaking for a while (not wreck related) is this common on these trucks?.....now would be the time to replace the rear while I have it apart.

I haven't heard of many leaking radiators on 6.7's. 6.4's, yes.

I'd just replace it.

Its a $700 radiator lol, we're having the insurance company come out and see if they can determine it to be wreck related or find some other damage on it.

There have been some issues with the 6.7 radiators. If you search the forums there are numerous posts and threads. It's usually on the drivers side low where the tank and radiator are crimped together, My radiator leaked in that area at 48,000 miles.
