I went with a $350 Mishimoto aluminum radiator in my JK when the factory one broke. Less than 6 months and I was looking for a replacement of the Mishimoto due to cracking. Apparently it is a common issue with the Mishimoto for the JK. I bought a $98 amazon unit and have had no issues yet with over 6k miles on it so far. Even one of the reviews said that he had Mishimoto issues and bought the amazon unit and hadn't had a problem since. Just my .02 cents.

I have an 04 TJ with less than 80,000 miles and have replaced my radiator twice. I bought the first replacement radiator online but when it failed I no longer had the info on it. I bought the second one at Riebes Auto Parts and it has a lifetime warranty. So if it starts to leak like the stock one and the second one did, I will just take it with my receipt back to Riebes and get a free replacement. I have never had an issue with overheating so I didn't see a need for a more expensive radiator.
