    Cool Radiator question

    Can you replace the stock radiator in and 2004 Silverado with one out of a 2005? I read somewhere that this is possible. Just looking for some more reassurance. Thanks for any feedback.

    Why not just replace it with the same part? Works for GM not you.

    Are you wanting to go to electric fans or just straight up replace the radiator? Anyway way I think they are the same



    If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

    Current:
    1999 GMC Sierra SLT Z71 | 5.3 Vortec | Spectre Cold Air Intake | TransDapt TBS | Hypertech 30005 Tune | 2005 Chevy Tails | Denali headlights | AWS Bug Shield | 265/75/16 Mastercraft Courser A/T | "Ghetto" painted tailgate | Boss HD Speakers | 2005 Overhead Console | Dual Thrush Turbo Mufflers
    Future:
    Bigger Amp Alternator | Electric Fans | Oil/Trans Fluid cooler | Re-done exhaust | Paint | Interior Restoration/upgrade with newer model stuff | Window Visors (In channel) | Tint | Low-Profile Tool Box | LEDs throughout stock cab locations | And whatever is spurr of the moment

    The 2004 used a clutch fan and the 2005 used electric fans and a wider radiator, the wider 2005 radiator would require a different fan shroud.

    The reason I was curious is im wanted to run an electric fan in my 04'. I read that the 04 radiator is suppose to be 28" and the 05' 34". However my radiator measures 34", so would an electirc fan setup from and 05' mount up on my radiator?
