Anyone running a GDI 4-row rad. in CJ w/ AMC v-8?

i'm in the market for a radiator for my scrambler project with an AMC 360. after a little searching, i have found i can get a GDI 4-row (p/n 436010) radiator for $210 or a Modine 3-row (p/n 583) for $145. i have always used Modine in the past with very good results. the scrambler will be used for everything from highway to mud to trails and rocks. i'd like to stay with the Modine and save $65, but if i need 4-rows, let me know. thanks for any info! matt

Re: Anyone running a GDI 4-row rad. in CJ w/ AMC v-8?

I'm using a Go Dan Industries (GDI) 4 row radiator in my CJ5. I have a Chevy 350 and an electric fan in my CJ5. The GDI radiator works fine for me. I do not live in a very hot climate. There are a couple things I've noticed about radiators lately, most aftermarket radiators are import manufactured, including Modine. It's not easy to say if 3 rows or 4 rows is better. The number of fins per inch is also an important factor. Just for a comparison, my GMC pickup has a 3 row radiator and I use the GMC to tow the CJ5. I think having air flow though the radiator is most important, which is why I have a manual switch on my CJ5 electric fan.
