Bob was working on a aftermarket radiator with a built in electric fan combo. I dont know how far he got on it, but I talked to him on it for like 30 mins one day. He was working with a major radiator manufacturer.

May be worth a email to him and see how far he got.

I've haven't had a problem with my rad , nor do I know of anybody who had a problem with one other than a guy who put a bolt through his.

I can't think of a way to make one better than stock design. To me its basically a flat bucket with fins. Not much room to improve on the concept of a bucket. Maybe larger coolant capacity, or higher coolant flow? :dunno:

Maybe I should buy some stockers and paint em' then I could sell them on ebay as high performance. $$$ :D

I wouldnt think replacing the radiator with 2500 radiator would make any difference if it works at all. Temp is controlled by the t-stat anyways. As far as e-fan goes i would def do that. That will open up more HP.

The viper fan is on back order

Yeah, whats wrong with the stocker. Just install a 180 or 160 if the 180 doesn't cut it.
I think he was just working on a way to improve the cooling volume while staying with in the small area that Dodge has there.

Out of all the 1500 sized trucks, Dodge has one of the smallest radiators. Again, your right, the stock if fine. I think it was meant for those who want to run some major power in hotter areas.

The reason dodge can get away with a smaller radiator is because they do not have the a/c condensor in front of them adding heat.

Best advice out there.
Trucks warms up faster,stays cooler in traffic,and better performance and gas mileage.
In 2 years of towing my controller has worked without a single glitch.
Just buy a kit,dont piece it together and expect it to work right.
