Default It was bound to happen...

Lost control Friday night and ended up in a ditch in the local wildlife area. Im fine aside from a couple of brusied ribs. Ill put pics up later..

But on to the damage:
radiators cracked. pepboys wants 170 for one, or should I just go to the junkyard?

The AC cooler mount is now crooked. have to take a torch to it and bend it back?

the metal pipes that take tranny fluid from tranny to the radiator are bent.

no body damage what so ever... idk how I managed that.

That sucks dude. Get a new radiator from a radiator shop not pep boys. Dont get one from the JY, alot of them are clogged up and its a waste of money. Some shops have them brand new and tested for alot less than pep boys

I was probably doing 35ish and was slowing down going into a bend, I had sand in the brakes so they grabbed fast than i thought they would, so they locked, and my momentum was just too much. The stump that messed me up actually saved me, if i had go another 2 feet i would have been in a 20+ foot deep canal...


I already took the old one out so I can do the labor myself. Ill check if theres a radiator shop around me...

Though I too recommend getting one from a Radiator shop::

I have used the Napa Heat Buster radiator in my Jeep (added 30cubic inches and 800lbs, needs lots of cooling).
It was dirt cheap $100/ish. And has lasted 9 years so far with no leaks/overheats

Throwin' it out there.. I put in a new radiator around christmas time. The cheapest I found was from radiatorbarn.com I believe. I will find the link for you.

EDIT:
For my truck it was:

http://radiatorbarn.com/search.php?product=radiator

Lifetime warranty and free shipping! Super Easy to install also

EDIT:
Oh and just noticed you have the same year and engine as mine so that should work for you!
