TJ 5.2 318 swap radiator?

For the past few months I have spent hours upon hours researching for the 5.2 swap into my 2000 TJ SE and i'm yet to find a definitive answer regarding the correct radiator to use. I am well aware that AA and Backwoods both offer modified radiators for the swap, however, I am on a student budget and i'm not inclined to spend $300+ unnecessarily.

If anyone has any input regarding this issue it would be greatly appreciated. The motor I am looking at is from a '98 dakota, is there a possibility that rad could be used?

thanks

I doubt the Dakota radiator can be used.

Its probably too rectangle shaped where you need something that is more square.

Oconee Off-Road sells V8 conversion radiators starting around $190. I'm using one of their radiators with my V8 conversion and its working fine.

Yes, I'm using the stock fan shroud.

I was able to use the stock clutch driven fan on the V8 so I did not have to use an electric fan.
