replacement radiator

What brands are you guys using for Radiators in a 2003 4wd 4.0? I got looking at Rockauto and the only one I recognized was AC Delco.
Are there any american made radiators out there for our Rangers?

Just use OEM if you would like, or the junkyard.

Summit has some, higher flow rates than OEM.
All depends on what,you are looking for and how much you want to spend.

Auto Parts Warehouse has some too.

Single row radiators work as well as two or three row units.

I had to replace the radiator on my truck about 2,000 miles ago. I used an OE spec one from Advance Auto and it works great. Fit is excellent and has all the correct linkage for the built in transmission oil cooler as well. Still might put an AUX tranny cooler on it one day, but it's got 135K on the truck and never had any problems with the built in cooler in the radiator for the tranny oil.
