This was not what I expected. By the picture it looks like it is made out of steel and copper, but it is not. It is made out of plastic and aluminum. I will go ahead and use this one since I want to get this project done. I can not recommend this until I put some time driving in off road conditions to see how it will hold up.
Was excited to receive in the mail...shipping email was confusing, said it was a single core radiator but i ordered a two core...still don't know if i got the right one, came in super oversized box, radiator was bent in the center and bowed, parts bag had a hole in it and therefore was missing a transmission line o-ring, no instructions (no biggie), had to strip top and bottom mounting brackets from old radiator and put them on the new one. Due to the radiator being bent install was frustrating and long. Would have sent it back for return but needed to get my 2000 xj back on the road. Overall, this was my first order from 4WD...not very pleased.
The unit fit just fine overall, but the tranny-cooler 90 degree fitting didn't fit as well as it could. With the adapter-fittings they supply, it pushes that line out into the sheetmetal of the air-filter box area. I coped with it, but that line arrived already collapsed a bit (not an open round tubing bend) Otherwise, everything fit fine. I opted to swap the top plate of the new unit with the old unit - thereby having no use for the included adapter-brackets. There are options you can try for best fit in your vehicle. They supply all the necessary adapters for worst-case-scenario. That's one thing that makes this a good comfortable purchase.
Radiator was well packaged.Tanks and aluminum fins good construction.Stamped side mounts hit sides of radiator,left side not flat,effecting alignment of support screws. Wheres quality control ? Original is better,but more expensive.
this will fit with out any alteration 2 core is stock for 4 ,0

I don't see any reason that this Omix-Ada Replacement Radiator would have an issue being used in an XJ with A/C.
