Personally, I'd scrap the Advance Auto radiator idea and get an all-aluminum radiator, if you plan to keep your truck a while. CSF 2969 is the radiator to get - its all-aluminum and will last a long, long time, as it has no plastic tanks to crack and go bad. For more information, see this thread:

Just do a GOOGLE search for CSF 2969 and you should find it via several online outlets and eBay.

Get the largest TOC you can. Can't hurt.

Check the specs for the all-aluminum CSF 2969 here:

This radiator should more than handle your needs - I have a 5.9 magnum in my 3/4 ton Ram 2500 with A/C and 4x4/automatic transmission and its doing great.
