I am looking at putting the earlier style all metal radiator in my 96 FZJ80. the old radiator has 2 bolts at the top on each side to hold the Radiator in the reinforcement side brackets.

Then new metal radiator does not have any nuts to receive the bolts. Does anyone know if there is a different side reinforcement bracket used for the earlier all metal radiator?? reading the posts on mud it kind of sounds like that, but is unclear....

There was never a all metal radiator for the FZJ80. Only 3 row vs 2 row. All metal ones were aftermarket and the ones we dealt with was trash.

Part number from Perfromance is 1917. This will get you the 3 row brass and copper one that is around $260.
