97 radiator

My 17 year old radiator is leaking from plastic end cap.
I need truck to get to work can't disable it.
I tried to order new radiator from parts house.
They have 2 . Single row or 2 row.
Shot in dark anyone know what I have here with out removing first ?
97 XLT extend cab 4.0 6cyl 2 wheel drive with ac automatic trans.
No bells whistles.
Thanks in advance. Its getting cold here in Northeast New York

Most likely 2 row seeing as you have the biggest engine with an out trans= most heat produced by any drivetrain configuration just an educated guess. But hey even if you have a one row a 2 row would be considered an upgrade i put a two row in my 3.0l last time and its nice here in Georgia brings temps down by about 5 degrees but even in New York it should still be a good upgrade.

just get the 2 row, or the 5.0 v8 radiator. way better, but I think the 5.0 and 4.0 have the same radiator.
