Well, I am back at this...again. I think I have found something that will work for this truck.

@bucket do you see any reason this radiator would not work? I may pull a camper once in a while locally (no more than 30 miles from home), but mostly this truck will be for cruising.....not sure if I need a 3 or a 4 row. I may also put on my electric fan I have, unsure yet.

This radiator has a core size of 28-1/4" wide X 19" tall (2 row). Not certain of overall tank width.....I did some measuring on my top rad mount (hole to hole for rubber mounts) and it looks like this would work, just not as thick as a 4 row. This one also won't break the bank.....and my local Napa I know the owner quite well, so if there was an issue I wouldn't have an issue returning it.

Thoughts?

As long as it physically fits, that one should work. 2 cores are fine if they are thick, and that one is.
