I purchaced this radiator as an upgrade from the stock 2 core brass unit my 81 CJ8 had. While they say it fits AMC 6 and 8 motors, the fan hits the radiator with a 258 I6. I had to order an electric fan in order to get this to work, the listing should say V8 or V6 motors not AMC 6 as these were Inline and much longer than the V type motors. After I installed the electric fan it works great.
doesnt come with rad cap and the cap is rare no eom cap will fit this rad
I would like a simple replacement with durability & performance enhancement to the old worn out stock Jeep Radiator in my 1993 YJ Renegade. Will this radiator Direct fit with existing mounting holes and space allocated in the engine compartment? Utilize a standard off the shelf radiator cap? Allow adequate clearance for the standard engine driven cooling fan? Utilize the factory cooling fan cowl? Connect to the factory Overflow canister?

Hi Chris The Replacement Aluminum Radiator will bolt into the stock mounting holes. You can use a stock off the shelf cap rated at the pressure recomanded by Be Cool. Aluminum radiators are ment to use electric fans on them as the stock shroud will not fit and in a lot of cases the stock fan could hit the radiator. It will connect to the stock overflow canister. Thanks

I've heard that there are mixed reviews regarding having fan belt driven radiators vs. electric fan radiators. Can you please let me know what would be the better option and why. I have a 2004 Rubicon TJ and would appreciate your input.

JP, In order to run an aftermarket aluminum radiator you do need to run an electric fan due to the stock fan shroud not fitting. The belt driven fan does pull more CFM however uses more power from the motor to turn. With the Be Cool Replacement Aluminum Radiator Module for AMC 4 or 6 Cylinder Engine with Manual Transmission an electric fan is more than enough to keep it cool. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Although the website identifies this product as "fitting" my 92 YJ 4.0 w/manual tranny, it does not state that it is "Direct Fit". Is there a difference?

Be Cool Radiators is based in Essexville, Michigan and was founded in 1994. Original founder Roger Rosebush had been involved in motorsports since adolescence and back in the day, he and his siblings built out a 57 Chevy with a 427 big block engine and used it for illegal street racing. Rosebush became hooked on designing and building more and more powerful engines and this endeavor eventually led him into professional race car driving. Motorsports evolved into a desire to engineer better cooling systems for ever more powerful engines. Be Cool Radiators has, from its founding, had one focus: making the best easy-install, bolt-in aluminum radiators for your Jeep. Shop Be Cool Now
