    The B&M super cooler (crossflow type) is a good choice.
    It pretty much replicates the factory cooler and is easy to mount.

    Just go to your fav auto parts store and pick up the biggest one you can get. They usually classify them by GVW so just get the largest GVW rated one and you'll be golden /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Some folks use an old A/C condenser--I may put one on my diesel truck--the cooler thats on there now is a dinky little joke,looks more like a power steering cooler,so I might hook it up to the P/S instead,after removing it from the radiator core,I hate those nylon "poke thru the radiator"things they give you to hold it on with--who invented those retarded things--the modine replacement radiator company??.They do a nice job of sawing the tubes in your radiator in half. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Not good when its nearly 400 bucks for a new 6.2 radiator. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    It just so happens I have a condensor on my truck not being used, I just put headers on and took the AC compressor off. Anyone know if this works very well?


    I saw in the summit magazine that for $99.00 they have a fan cooled 15,000 LB gvr cooler.
