Radiator with 4.3 chevy engine swap

I have a 1982 CJ7. When I purchased it the owner had the original 151 cubi inch 4cyl swaped with a 4.3L Chevy V6, however the radiator is the stock one for the four cyl. Does anyone have any suggestions for a radiator that will mate up with the CJ7 and handle the cooling needs of the 4.3L Chevy. I have not over heated so far but with the hot summer in California ahead I want to get it replaced.

I am in the process of finishing a 2002 4.3L into a YJ. I used a radiator for $200 from extreme radiator.com. It is a conversion rad so it bolted right in and the hoses are on the correct side for hte chevy engine.

I haven't had it running yet. So I will tell you that I don't know for a fact how well it works. I am also using a novak elec fan.

Thanks for the info. Do you by chance have the part number from extreme radiators?
