If it doesn't have to be new you could try a boneyard.

I went through 1-800-radiator. I think I paid like 150 delivered. All aluminum, none of the plastic tank BS. I think all motor sizes use the same rad.

our junkyards suck!!! im hoping its the radiator causing it to heat up, don't do it all the time but on occasion, already changed the water pump and I can hear the fan clutch when I start it.

How about the thermostat? They can hang up sometimes too.

RockAuto has one as low as $92

Most seem to hover around $130-150.
