Radiator opinions

I'm looking to buy a brand new radiator for my ranger. The best deal I have come across is this SIlla all Aluminum for 130 bucks and free shipping.

Silla Radiator Aluminum Core, Aluminum Endtanks

Versus this All Aluminum Radiator on Ebay for 185 plus 30 bucks for shipping. And they won't let me pick t up from their warehouse even though it's practically around the corner for me.

1985 1986 FORD RANGER BRONCO II ALL ALUMINUM RADIATOR: eBay Motors (item 280407035450 end time Jul-04-10 17:14:55 PDT)

Are Sillas Reliable? I don't want to throw trash parts in this truck I would like it to last another 20 years before another major thing goes wrong. So quality is what i'm shooting for here. But if I can go cheap AND have quality that would be awesome too.

Thanks Guys.

never heard of sillas radiators...

a year or so ago I bought a Ready-Rad to replace my oem unit. that ready-rad lasted 5 months and then broke again. I managed to get my money back from O'Reilly on the piece of junk and ordered a Visteon from RockAuto. Supposedly Visteon is the oem maker for Ford. I compared it to the oem...looked pretty much the same. I figure if the oem lasted 11 years, the Visteon should last a while.
