    Heavy duty radiator

    Hey guys , looking for some advice on a heavy duty radiator for my h2 itís a 08. I need a new one and really would like to upgrade, any suggestions? I have found a few but they are either dirt cheap or crazy expensive.

    Why the upgrade? Was your H2 running hot beforehand?

    I do a lot of towing around 5600 lbs give or take, itís on 40ís and geared to 488 and lately itís been getting hot sometimes even when not towing itís got 188k and I checked for leaks. The radiator is a cheap one I put in about 4 years ago so Iíd like to get it up to par. And no it didnít run hot before Iíve been on 40ís for a while now and never had a issue

    Hopefully some H2 owners chime in with firsthand experience. I don't recall hearing issues with the OEM setup in the H2 - it seems to cool well, and maybe that's the way to go. With a lot of towing, maybe upgrade the transmission cooler and/or put in auxiliary fans. For my H3, I saw temps go down a bit in every day driving when I went back to OEM vs. cheap aftermarket.

    How hot is hot? If youíve run this set up for a few years and no issue, and it just started, I would run the same radiator. Only problem the 2ís really had radiator wise was leaking from the cooler fittings. Maybe another issue going on? Tstat or such?
