Whats best aftermarket Radiator?

Are they all the same, or should I go after a radiator that is better made and performs good?

(My radiator has had small leak ever since I hit that gas can a few weeks ago, that I posted in the general ranger forum).

Its a very small leak in the gasket I have, and Bars-Leaks didnt stop the leak, so am going to have to replace the radiator.

Tried to Google, no luck. Where do you buy these at, and why is Expo a good pick?

He means a radiator from an explorer. Are the rad on the ranger and the explorer the same?

the explorer radiator is a direct bolt in if you get the right one, not to mention it is a dual core and not a single core like rangers.

I am looking at the all Aluminum radiator from Genesis in California.

Is all aluminum a good way to go?
