The 6cyl core support has a different radiator mounting brackets.

Guess I would probably get the V8 radiator core support as the opening for the air flow is larger.

If I remember correctly, it doesn't cost very much for the pieces to weld on for the V8 mounts. I bought mine from TBP when I did mine. Cut the old mounts off and open the hole and weld the new ones one where the instructions tell you to. Then the stock, or 4 core supports will mate right up.

You will be much happier if you put in the v8 core support. Mark in San Diego; Beach City broncos.

I second the use of the V-8 core support. If you don't do it at least make the cut out for putting in power steering while the motor is out. It isnt much fun to do it later with everything already in the engine bay. Clean, sterilize and paint the engine bay while the motor is still out. is is such a pain to do it once you get the engine back in.
