  • 900.00 big 40 radiator

    I'd shop around. Even if they recored that radiator, it should be less. Sounds like maybe this shop is getting the price direct from the engine manufacturer, any good shop should be able to find something common (cheap) the right size and fab the mounting brackets if necessary, that's only if there isn't anything direct from the aftermarket people that will bolt right in.

      I agree, 900 is way too much. I'd also look up RADMAN here on the forum member list and see if you can send him and email asking his opinion. He's always been dead on with the info he's provided.

        Well, there's a lot more diesel pickups than Big 40 's
        I also think that radiator shop is trying to hose you big time.

            A radiator shop trying to "hose" you? Now that's funny.
