I think the originals were made by a company called "Modine".

What does it cost to have a three-row radiator rebuilt in Austria?

Ahhh, could be that they changed in the years from one to another supplier. Thats normally.
Rebuilding is about 300-450 Euro in Austria. My luck is that i worked for some years in AC Business, from there i have a contact to a Radiator shop in germany, they will do it between 200-250 Euro includes shipping to me. I hope that they will have the 3 row available...

You radiator does not have the three rows?

I do know that in later years many Jeeps were made in Canada. I think that started in the early 1980s.

Modine was the gold standard in the day, (60's -> 70's) most OEM's used them.

Yeah. I thought the name was right, haven't bought a new rad since 1996, it was a Modine.

After I posted that, I did do a Bing search to confirm my suspicions. Good to know I'm still right sometimes.

Can also get a 4 core unit. Mostly for the 401's. Got one in my '81 when I was getting ready to do the deed.

I'm not in the prissy group, but I do enjoy the "qualifications" to get in.
Plus, I've had a 4-row Modine for 15-20 yrs. Good 'un.

Hey Rod2!

Hope you are doing well Sir!

Yea looking at your J truck and not calling it "Prissy" is a farce!

You did it right! That qualifies!

My dream is gone.....

My buddy from the radiator shop called me today that the radiator repair will cost more than estimated...so it would be cheaper to buy a new one. Yes that`s life here in Europe...

So i took a look at TGW, they have a nice set for a good prive including new hoses and so on.

Any experiences with?

All I can say is be careful. Find a good used one, or one for parts to make one good out of two. Search for my posts on new radiators. Bottom line is that three new radiators later I'm now using the original one with patches.
