Default Radiator??

Hey guys Im new to this forum so Im sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot. Well here is my question I have a 2003 Ranger extended cab FX4 level2 and my girlfriend forgot to set the brake and it rolled into a wheel barrel and then into a wall the handle went right between the bumper and the air dam and dented the radiator all the way back into the fan. My question is where is a good place to get a cheap radiator and also is the AC condenser mounted in front of the radiator?? If so I will need one of thoes too. If anybody has changed these out how easy/hard is it to do and any helpful hints would be great thanks in advance for any help!!!!!!

I got my rad off of ebay for my truck, and it was the first time doing it on this truck for me. It wasn't too hard to do it, but i'm not mechanically challenged! its some bolts, and disconnecting of hose clamps and hoses (MAKE SURE YOU DRAIN THE RADIATOR COOLANT 1ST)...

I havent done an A/C condensor but i bet its a similar job. Somebody will chime in...

ac condenser is in front but toward the bottom if you remove your grille you will see it just below the radiator

Ok thanks for the info I will check ebay. Also I did find a radiator for a good price but it says its for a 2003 Edge will it fit my truck or does the edge hava a different set up?? The AC condenser is it smaller than the radiator?? cause I have been looking online at them and they look like they are the same size as the radiator and they mount directly over the front of the radiator or am I wrong?? Thanks again for the help.

it will work as long as the engine is the same size

A/C condenser is a lot smaller its like the size of a high school text book

Hey guys,

Don't get the A/C condensor confused with the Automatic transmission cooler. The A/T tranny cooler sits in front of the radiator and it's about the size of a text book too.

That's what I thought he was talking about...the tranny cooler.
