Radiator - can't locate pre Oct 1998 version

I need a radiator for my 1999 Rodeo, V6, M/T.

My 1999 was built in Sept. 1998, according to the sticker inside the driver's door.

Apparently Isuzu changed the radiator design in Oct. 98, and auto parts stores only have that one.

I've had 2 from auto parts stores, but neither had the correct mountings for the top of the fan shroud.

My radiator has two 10mm bolts, 12 5/8 inches apart, that secure the top of the fan shroud to the radiator.

The ones auto parts stores have don't, but instead have 2 plastic posts, non-threaded. One would have to use sheet metal screws, but how long that would work is questionable.

Has anyone run into this issue? Able to resolve? It's looking like a special order, which means lots more cash....
