CrockAuto has a few too as well as Summit. For the cost difference I'd install a new OEM with new full strength coolant mixed 50/50 with distilled water. Some online Dodge parts are fairly reasonable. Price versus aggravation

replace the whole tank DO NOT REBUILD the number of hot cold cycles flexes the joints and even though the o rings and tank end are available the price diff with antifreeze and labor it just does not add up

Yes, they're plastic tanks.
I've changed some before. Not that hard if you know the procedure & the radiator has to be r&r'd either way.
Is aluminum any better?
My understanding, aluminum is rather rigid & prone to cracking. Maybe not as bad as plastic..
This one, if original, lasted 11 years and just over 400k mi, so one more should get it pretty far. And my miles vs heat/cool cycles are pretty high. 500 mi per cycle on average.

I just went to O'Reilly's and bought a new radiator for not much. They had a discount for ordering online so I took out my phone and ordered online. Finding tanks then replacing them is a hassle and there is no warranty.

Side note, I talked to a guy that turned down $17,000 for an 01 without many mods. Stock except for FASS & gauges but clean body & 200,000 mi.

The price I saw for O'Reilly is $245.
A stock replacement from the rock house is like $125 with shipping.
Guess the local lifetime warranty is worth something, but the all aluminum version is $200 & claims 35% better cooling
