One will not cool better than the other. Chrysler did change the transmission cooler line fitting sizes during one of the later models. The bottom fitting on my '98 is a 3/8" press on hose, whereas earlier ZJ incarnations used a screw-on fitting. The top fitting changed too.

They cool the same. I have a new all aluminum radiator in storage for the 5.2 if anyone is interested.

FYI, Autopartsway.ca has the metal-tank 2-core and 3-core ZJ rads for $101 and $103 respectively, and there's a coupon code in the website for 8% off that basically makes shipping free. I ordered one yesterday since my rad is literally falling apart and temps are starting to get high.

I got the cheapest one Rockauto had for a temporary fix until I could afford a better one. That was over a year ago. Darn thing has worked great.

I did the same thing. Except I went to Napa and got their cheapest, as my old radiator was pissing coolant all over the place. That was three years ago...
