RADIATORS WITH MOUNTING FRAMES
Many truck radiators are mounted into a steel frame that in turn mounts to the frame of the truck.
When you purchase a new radiator, it is necessary to remove the frame from the old radiator and then install that frame on the new radiator. This process can take a good mechanic one hour to one and a half hours additional labor.
In addition, the original frame flexes along with the truck itself and over time becomes twisted.
Re-installing a twisted frame on a new radiator puts stress on the new radiator and absolutely contributes to premature failure of the new radiator.
Active offers radiators complete with mounting frames pre-installed for many popular truck applications which will save labor and extend the life of your new radiator.
