need new radiator

Has anybody out there dealt with radiator.com before? Looking for a radiator for my 93' wrangler -- is it tough to replace the radiator, thermostat, upper/lower hoses, and water pump? I also need a great repair manual. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I know people who have dealt with them and have only heard of good things regarding their service and price.

Replacing what you listed is not hard at all. You can do it with a simple socket set and screw driver.

Any Haynes or Chilton manual at a local Auto Store will give you details on this also.

I've heard good things about em so I'd say go for it!
Like Keith said, I don't think you'll have much trouble installing the new radiator

I went to a local radiator shop and had my radiator rebuilt. Basically all new guts with the same top and bottom. It had 2 rows of coils but there was room for 3 rows, so cooling capacity was improved. I think it cost around $150.

I bought radiator from radiator.com
I have a 89YJ 6 cyl 5 speed. They give you free shipping life time warranty fit perfect. Also had it the next day total cost $151.00. For me it was better than the local shops around town.
