I noticed that my radiator on my 2006 Rubicon has started to leak. The OEM PN is 55037653AC which is around $330.
Has anyone used an aftermarket radiator which is equal to or better than OEM one? If so, can you please let me know the PN.

There have been many radiator discussions over the years and most agree that OEM is the best. Some aftermarket have been known to leak within a year or so. If you can't get the OEM soon enough then I'd try something from Napa, not Autozone, but that's just my opinion.

Do yourself a huge favor and replace with a genuine Mopar radiator. If you don't believe me, search for my many threads about my radiator adventures.

Hey, I bought a Mishimoto back in ah.... 2014? It developed a leak. I contacted them and they asked a bunch of questions, got pics and sent me a new one with slightly different mounting points. I believe the original design put some twist into the rad and the new one didn't. I've been running it since with no issues. I was impressed with how they handled the situation. Just my experience.

In my previous Rubi I installed a Mishimoto transmission cooler (and a radiator), unfortunately its fittings were Metric - 10mm I think. I finally found a Metric conversion fitting.

Go OEM for both radiator and fluid. Don't go cheap on the fluid, it makes a difference.
