Radiators.....which is best?

1 (single) Row, 2 Row or 3 Row?
I have 4.0, AW4, A/C and a tranny cooler. Who is a good place to go with or should I start looking on Ebay?

This question really needs to have more information behind it. Radiators are like lifts IMO... ie, what do you plan on doing with your Jeep.

Since most of us rock crawl, a 2 row is best.
However for higher performance applications (where speed is involved), a 3 row would be better suited.
I personally dont think that a 1 row serves a purpose.

I for one grabed a 2 row from NAPA (aluminum) and couldnt be happier.

Thank you Muad'Dib!
I actually just got off the phone with Napa and found that they do have the one you decided on.
I plan on daily driving and mild to hard offroad. i have not ventured too far too the rock crawling as of yet. I am running a 4.5 with 32's and fr-rr LSD's

The Alumrads are nice, but they have plastic end tanks i was heartbroken when I found out b/c they're so pretty and seem very well made....

x2. i have the 2 row aluminum (yes it has plastic tanks) and i rock crawl with the a/c blowing and auto trans working hard and i dont have ANY of the all too common overheating problems. be sure you do a new cap, hoses, ect. i also recomend all factory fans (steel fan with HD clutch and 97+ acc fan). this is what i run and it works for me. oh, call 1800radiator and tell them you want the aluminum rad. they are based in las vegas and free shiping. BTW i have a stroked 4.0 HO (4.7)
