    Radiator compatability.

    Are the radiators the same as the gasoline models? Has anyone dove into this? Having trouble trying to source a diesel specific radiator. But can get the gas ones all day long.

    I have seen other say they used 2.6 rads - they are bigger than the 2.0 rads. Find one with 2 row core and all metal like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/CSF-Radiato...53.m1438.l2649

    The diesel is wider with 2 row core. When I converted to the gasoline truck the diesel radiator didn't fit. So I used the radiator for the 2.0 and just watched it really closely the first few hundred miles. I drove in Texas heat this past summer and never had any problems. If I ever get to installing the air conditioning system then I will install an electric fan with a shroud since mine currently does not have a shroud. If that doesn't work I'll probably custom order one with an extra row and that should be more than enough.

    Look into the Montero radiators. They will fit with some mods. The second gen for the Montero SR is what I have to use.
