Radiator question

Is there a difference in the 4.0 radiator and the 5.2.
Wil the 5.2 radiator fit with the 4.0 hoses?

IIRC, the hose connections are on opposite sides for the 4.0 and the 5.2/5.9 radiators.

My 93 4.0 has the inlet at the upper right and the outlet at the bottom left. Trans cooler to the left, drain on the right.

I guess I stand corrected. They tried to sell me a rad. for a 4.0 for my 98 5.2 one time, and the connections were all on the same side.

Then they weren't showing you a 4.0L ZJ rad... the 4.0L connections never changed from 1993 through 98. All of them have inlet and outlet diagonally opposite.

Who knows what they were trying to sell me. I went to radiator barn and got an all aluminium! That one was right!! Solved all my cooling problems too.
