Default Ultimate Cummins Radiator

I just wanted to let everyone know about my recent search for the best towing/Hot weather ultimate radiator. I found the standard aluminum core with plastic tank radiators that come in the 2nd Gen Dodge cummins trucks, but thought how could this thin radiator keep my truck cool in the hot weather running air conditioning and endless traffic jams around the Chicago area. I found only one source for real radiators with four core and all metal meant as a direct bolt in replacement for the Dodge radiator. BTR Radiator at 401 Dixie Red Ave Jefferson GA 30549 PH 678-382-2101. I purchased the radiator through Ebay I don't know if they sell direct or not. The first radiator showed up at my door with damage from rough handling at Fed Ex, but with a phone call to JD at BTR he immediately sent out a new one even before Fed Ex processed the damage claim. In this age of it's somebody Else's problem I was impressed with his professionalism and only hope all suppliers would follow his example. I would recommend this radiator and this company to anyone interested in truly heavy duty cooling for their Dodge or probably any Diesel.

I am the worst at thinking about taking pics while working on something. I should be more considerate as I personally love to see everyone else's pics. I will try to take some after install pics if you are interested. Might take a couple of days.

Default Pictures of the BTR Cummins radiator

Sorry this took so long for the pictures. I just uploaded them. Keep in mind this is the radiator that got freight damaged, so you might see the damage in the pictures. The one I installed is not damaged.

I think it cools better than the stock one and is all metal so should last a long time.
I haven't pulled anything yet, but stays cool even with the hot weather in Chicago and heavy traffic with the ac on full blast.
