Fits perfectly for a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Good purchase for older car which you really don't want to spend a lot of money for a radiator. Not a brass radiator; plastic / aluminum. Change your upper and lower radiator hoses at this time. Warning this radiator is not easy to install; you might consider having this done at Pepboys service center instead especially when they have rewards coupons.
 A reasonable replacement for older /high mileage car
Pros Price
Cons installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

You guys are great. I needed a radiator for my 1968 Camaro. I checked out Pep Boys on line and found a direct fit radiator at a more than reasonable price. The best part was that it took less than 24 hours and I was able to pick it up in store. Perfect fit no modifications needed, I bolted it in hooked up a couple of hoses and was off to the cruise night. Thanks again, you guys are great.
 Exceeded my expectations.

Perhaps better than the original. It's very well made. My son-in-law installed it quickly with no problems. I've since put several thousand miles on the vehicle with no cooling problems.

radiator went in with ease, would have given it a 5 but it didn't have the top mounting studs so it has some movement at the top the original didn't have.
Pros Price
Cons missing studs
Yes, I recommend this product.
