I have a 2013 RT with manual transmission and my radiator is leaking so I'm about to order one and replace it. My build sheet says I have "heavy duty cooling system". When looking around I'm finding all kinds of mixed info as to which radiator I should order. All of the parts places offer a standard and heavy/severe duty radiators and the hose sizes and core thickness are different. Does anyone know off hand if the heavy/severe duty version is indeed the one I need?


Anyone replaced their radiator and have some tips or pointers on the best way to go about it? Does the entire front bumper have to come off?

Have you tried taking it to a rad. shop to get it fixed? Might be a ton cheaper and easier too.
Modern radiators are aluminum cores crimped onto plastic tanks - not much that can be serviced, unlike the old brass radiators.

The Severe Duty II radiators are on SRT models - don't know if the hose diameters are different between heavy duty 5.7 and Severe Duty II used for SRT applications.
