Welcome 😀

If your planning on keeping it or going offroad, then don't muck about by a new one.
Honestly, you'll spend so much time stuffing around you'll regret it.

I would go with an Adrad as the quality seems reasonable for the price. Mine was just under 300 delivered. Search on the forum, others import Mopar and some bring in LHD radiators and swap the brackets over. Using Adrad is not the cheapest, but it's simple. When you have fitted the rad, move the steering lock to lock on the ground and check all moving part clearances.

Don't buy an all aluminium ebay unit, the quality is inconsistent. They look great and the cooling capacity is bigger, but they are not well put together and they leak after a couple of months in my experience.

Flush the system.

Its not a big job, you'll save yourself a couple of hundred.

Good luck!
