Custom High Performance Cooling Radiator

Hey, does anyone know where to get a high performance cooling radiator? Or, where I can get one built for a Hemi Ram truck?

You would have to order a custom radiator for something else and make it fit. The Dakota 3 core aluminum radiators fit the front with condenser taken out. The real issue with our trucks is the side mount crap. The factory radiator is more than sufficient for anything we can throw at it the fans are the issue.

My 03 has just under 1.75" thick core. Most of the radiators I've found only have a 1.44" or 1.0" core.

In most areas there is a radiator shop that services the oval racing crowd. They will build custom radiators. I had a shop who did radiators for the Langley racers build one for a Toyota with a SBC in it. Ran about $350 back then which was twice the money for a stock radiator.

Hell yes, then use a huge crank driven supercharger with a massive inter cooler.

While waiting all day for an a/c tech to show up and figure out what the heck is going on with my real old a/c system. The manufacture doesn't have any info or parts for........

Anyhow, found a radiator that will work.

The 1.44 thick is a versatile radiator. It's used on 2500 5.7 hemi rams also. It's even listing for a 3500 Hemi Ram. Never seen or heard of that truck.

Anyhow, have located one near me. Going to go and check it out.
