    My 98 Dakota still has the original radiator and not leaking.......yet. Anyone still using the same one after 20 years or more? When the day comes I have to replace it, recommendations on who to get one from? Been looking at Rockauto.

    A Rad will last until they get all jacked up inside. I bought a Rad from R.A. for my K1500 a few months back. It is bigger than stock and the truck ran 20 degrees cooler.

    That's where my OE was leaking from too. Didn't have an issue up until it overheated.
