What radiator for a V8 YJ

I bought a 1990 YJ with a Chevy 305 installed and it has a single row aluminium radiator with a fan delete to a electric fan in it now and on the road does great but on the trail it gets hot. Just wondering if anybody out there is running a V8 and can help out what radiator would fit without buying that BIG $$$ one.
