3 core radiator price?

Where's the best place to buy a 3 core radiator for a 1979 CJ7 with a 304? I run too hot in the summer and too hot in winter with the plow mounted. I can google and find them around $150 but I am unsure of the quality. Any sugguestions?

I forgot to mention that my 79 with 304 has the quadratrac automatic. I am also missing the fan shroud so I was thinking about picking one of those up too right away. Thanks again for any suggestions.

If I can't hunt it, fish it, f**k it, or wheel it, I might not be that intrested in it

i got mine from a local parts store for about $155. That was the best price I found. Its a 3 core for a v8 or I6 I don't know if it has the attachments for the trans fluid though. $150 seems to be a good price for what you are looking for.

Definitely get that shroud though! Otherwise your fan will just bat air around in the engine compartment... the shroud makes sure it sucks it past the radiator only...
