No big hurry, I am probably not going to try to crack the A/C nut until next spring.

hey guys, i went with a 4.0l radiator from my local yard, cut and dropped the radiator support down and welded it back in. fit like a glove and got it all hooked up, damn thing leaks... good thing is the yard has at least 10 more to choose from. however i found this online this morning, anyone with experience or thoughts? 3 row all aluminum, i'm tempted to just get it and see what happens.

If you don't want to tuck the radiator into the core support further forward than the stock location, then yes, that model looks like it should work fine.
