Re-cored Radiators

Send me your old core and I can re-core you a new one and ship it back. I just got a 5 core, dimple rods, straight fin industrial core done up and it keeps my truck at temp even in 100 degree, sitting traffic in downtown Manhattan.

$700 - 5 core, dimple rods, straight fin industrial cores
$550 - 4 core, dimple rods, accordion fin core

both with or without oil cooler lines.

If someone needs a good core or can't afford to be without their truck while Daniel has yours fixed pm me and I can ship him my old one. I just replaced mine and my old one wasn't leaking and looks pretty clean.

I stole nothing. Just haven't seen you guys. Finally moved into the new place yesterday after a month of having to make sure the renovation would be completed by our move-in date. Been a little crazy with having to get all new furniture, schedule movers, etc. Truck was finally driven a little over the weekend after sitting. One block North of Washington Square Park!

My truck is having a little work done and I'm having this done today. I may go with the 5 core, dimple rods, straight fin industrial core and will have them keep the oil cooler lines in. I'll update with how it turns out. I have A/C in my truck.

If for whatever reason this one can't be re-cored I will, but otherwise I'm trying to keep my truck as stock as possible.

Funny, ours didn't come stock with Rhino Lining...

It came as part of the Cookie Crumb GPS option which strategically drips a drop of oil every few feet so that you can always find your way back.

Radiator was dropped off yesterday. After talking to the owner we agreed on a 4 core dimple rods recore. He said that over the stock 3 core that comes in the stock radiator, that the dimple rods alone would be a huge improvement, and that combined with the 4 core it would be around a 20% surface area increase.

One of the shop guys "messed up" and thought my rad was just there for a boil and acid bath clean, before realizing it was there for a recore, but it's not a big deal as now it'll just be super clean when it comes back. Here are some pics in progress.

Radiator shroud is the part that is bugging me due to silly cost.

This is tempting as I need a new radiator, but Genuine might end up being cheaper for me.
