This is a excellent replacement radiator for your Dodge Dakota that has the HD Cooling option, especially since the OEM radiator is discontinued and no quality aftermarket radiators make one with a 1.5" core. The only thing that I had to do to complete the install was (1) Open up the holes on the factory plastic shroud to align the bolt holes and (2) Add spacers to the electric fan since the threaded post that were welded on the radiator were short and without the spacers the fan would rub on the radiator when it would come on. Other that those two minor issues, it is a very high quality radiator and keeps the temperature of coolant/engine down better than the stock OEM radiator. 5 ⭐ product!!!!
If you need a radiator for you Dakota, don't hesitate to purchase this one.. You will not be disappointed!!!!
