http://www.nissanproblems.com/problems/transmission.shtml ..You REALLY need to read that page. It explains a lot. Nissan has extended the warranty for their transmissions in those trucks to 8 years/ 80,000 miles and beyond, even higher mileage with a pro-rated co-pay. That site explains your rights, resulting from a class-action law suit

I have read this page, but the warranty has me paying 2500 out of pocket because of mileage, if I replace this radiator myself it would save me a lot of money if I was certain this preventive measure would work.

If your rad is original and hasn't failed yet get a separate trans cooler installed and totally bypass the radiator to save your transmission. They will mix coolant and trans oil and ruin transmission.
