Had to cut the metal guard on my Jeep Cherokee at the radiator neck, and had to trim the plastic fan shroud to get the radiator to fit. After these modifications, the rest of the connections fit and the radiator has been performing superb. While I saved on the install doing it myself, I could have saved more time knowing I had to make the mods. Double check the radiator neck and fan shroud before beginning. Mods weren't hard, but I needed power tools to get the metal cut.

So far, this radiator is not leaking, so it's an improvement from what I had before, in that sense. Otherwise, this is the worst aftermarket part that I have installed in a long time. Every once in a while one might come across something that wasn't quite designed or built to OEM tolerances and it can usually be overcome with minimal frustration, but this radiator was a flat-out joke in that regard. The part shouldn't be represented as 'fitting' a Jeep Cherokee if I have to hack off part of the fan shroud bracket to allow the shrouds to fit, drill my own hole in the bracket to mount the trans cooler line brace, and then spend more time 'modifying' the body of the vehicle so that the lower ATF cooler fitting can allow the radiator to sit down in its mount. As it is, the fitting is resting up against the body, which is not ideal. If the fitting was bent either at more of an angle, or closer to the radiator, it would have been fine.

I'll admit that the bracket trimming is not difficult if the radiator is not in the Jeep, but I had already set it in and started to attach hoses, etc. to it, and didn't want to have to remove it, modify it, and then re-install(why should I have to anyways?!!!?).

Bottom line, I had to put a new radiator in a vehicle with which I was already familiar, so I budgeted a couple of hours, max, to get it done and it ended up taking a lot longer because of this garbage, so plan on at least an extra hour, if you're lucky enough to read the warnings on the wall before you plunk down the cash. I did not, and paid for it with my time.

You tricked me this time ReadyRad, but never again.

      Comments about Ready-Rad Radiator:

      Easy to install for the most part. I guess as easy as you can expect a radiator change to be. You will need a tool to remove the transmission cooling hose (lower one) I clipped the end off a large magic marker cap and was able to insert that into the fitting to detach. Needed to modify the replacement brackets that hold the AC coil in place (trimmed the L brackets a little so they would seat better). Engine runs a little cooler but then again the average outside temperature is 25 degrees right now.

      Decent for $ but hd to make modificatios

      By marco

      from albany ny

      Comments about Ready-Rad Radiator:

      Seems to be of decent build and some exchange of parts from old radiator is expected like top and bottom plate so condenser could be held on. The big issue for me was the quick disconnect for the lower transmission cooler line didn't fit the brass tube coming out of the new radiator. I measured the tube diameter of the old and new radiator and the new had a bigger dia. This seems to be a problem per Jeep forum. I ended up cutting off the quick disconnect and putting a tube and a couple of clamps to hold it together. so far no leaks.

        had to cut body so lower tranny cooler line would fit. also lower tranny cooler line adaptor leaked because the flare was to small and didnt seal on the o ring. I instaled a fatter o ring witch stopped the leak but the line wont tighten completely gana keep an eye on that.The same adaptor would not insert into the quick conect it had to be sanded and forceably put together

        Comments about Ready-Rad Radiator:

        Used as a stock replacement for leaking factory radiator also replaced the hoses, water pump, fan clutch, and added a 180 degree thermostat at the same time. I read the previous reviews about poor fitment specifically with the lower transmission cooler line attachment and tried it anyway. Did not have any fit issues; everything went together as it should. I did have to use a utility knife to trim a sliver of plastic off the fill neck to allow my new radiator cap to fit, no problem, took about 10 seconds. I would definitely recommend this part as a good stock replacement

                Was a little worried with all the comments about how much work was required to make this fit. In the 95 Jeep Cherokee, it fit perfectly. The top mounting brackets came off of the old radiator and fit right on the new and at that point it was identical to the old. This was my first radiator replacement and it was much easier than expected.

                    This radiator is the OEM replacement, it is formed to be like the one that comes on the car from the factory. People commonly do not take enough loose for the proper installation and will retrofit to save some time. With proper disassemble the part will fit fine. Hope this helps.
