I was smelling a burnt liquid. Had it inspected at Bettenhausen Jeep and was told the radiator had a Leak, they quoted me 750$ for Radiator, 300 for Liquids such as Freon, and 1100$ for installation.
I am Most likely doing it myself w some help w experienced friends. Question I have today is
Are there any Aftermarket Radiators that out perform the Stock Radiator or is the stock radiator the best/only option within that 1000-2500$) Range. Any recommendation and advice is welcome. I don’t know much but I’m determined to learn and appreciate any moment u spent replying to me thank you TH community.

This one looks like it has the external oil cooler brackets but I would check with the seller to confirm






OEM

Those front brackets are for the air-to-water cooler for the supercharger, isn't it? I just installed my FI Chiller and was all up in there. Didn't see any other coolers in that area.

In order of install looking from front: Supercharger heat exchanger > A/C Condenser > Radiator.

You are probably right.
I thought it was an oil cooler.
Nevertheless the Trackhawk has these brackets for a cooler
that all the other GCs do not.

I got you. I'm thinking for myself since the heat exchanger is removed on Hawks with the Interchiller installed, those brackets aren't necessary.

Well if you're never going to remove the interchiller and put the heat exchanger back then get the one without the brackets but they're the same price..
My mechanic made up some kind of brackets for the heat exchanger
when we put the 3 core in

So with the Stage 2 chiller and how I mounted my core, room is a premium up front. How much thicker is the radiator? In reference to the OEM mounting spot, does it protrude forward more, or possibly more towards the engine side?
