So I figured I'd share this with you guys. Had my lower rad hose pop today on my 1JZ MK3. Found a Gates replacement hose that worked perfectly after some modification. Gates part #: 22043 is the hose. According to the internet the hose is the upper rad hose for the 1994-2002 Dodge Ram 1500-3500 V8 Gasoline models. Has the bends you need to fit the hose to the water pump housing and have the hose bend down towards the swaybar going to the rad. You need to cut about 8-10 inches off the end that connects to the radiator and about an inch off where the hose connects to the water pump housing. Works perfectly though, and is the perfect diameter. So if you ever desperately need a rad hose that works with a JZ swapped car in an emergency, look for this hose!!!! It's cheap too! Only costs $21.43.
