Done with Mishimoto - what other options?

So, the 3rd Mishimoto radiator I have installed has been leaking for a bit now. Tired of having it spot everywhere I park and having to constantly check and top it off. Just go back to stock, or has anyone found any other options?

OEM. There is a reason they have plastic end tanks. Check your cab mounts to see if they have deteriorated before you put a new rad in.

Never had an issue with mine from these guys. It also has the proper sizing in the transmission cooler ports.

The new radiators from Ford, I am told, no longer have the driver side upper bolt. Try leaving that off your next radiator.

So, I'm interested in experiences with them too.

They make positive statements (marketing of course) about upgrades over OEM for strength/ longevity.

Yeah, I can never fully believe marketing hype. They do sound good though.
Griffin made a solid cooler for my Jeep- 2 quarts more capacity and more rows. They dont make one for the SD though.

Mishimoto says they're an upgrade over stock too. Considering my stock one lasted almost 40k before it started dripping, and the Mishi's ranged from 7k to ~25k before they started, not so sure I believe them or anyone else's marketing. The XDP looks interesting, seems to similar to stock with the plastic tanks. Haven't heard too many problems with people's stock replacements either, sure far fewer than those of us that went with Mishi

Which radiator do you have? I bought a Mishimoto MMRAD-F2D-03 but after reading on this forum how it doesn't like heavy duty applications I reached out to Steve @Mishimoto and he hooked me up with a MMRAD-F2D-60 (the actual heavy duty one) for the cost of shipping. They seem to want to keep peeps happy, at least they did for me.

Edit: NVM, I missed that this was a 6.7. Still, he might help you with whatever it is 6.7's like.
