Know a non-dealership source for an oil cooler?

My truck is leaking oil, fuel, and coolant. I've fixed the fuel leak by replacing the drain valve o-rings. The coolant is at the water pump gasket so I'm gonna replace it while I've got the coolant drained to replace the oil cooler which is also leaking.

Anyone know an aftermarket source for an oil cooler? The dealer quoted me $250 which seems a lot. I know I could just hope to get the cooler apart and put back together but I bet it is too corroded for that. (already tried Napa and rockauto)

Any help appreciated.

Oh, can anyone also tell me why it is better to switch to the radiator hose going around the serpentine belt vice through it?

yeah that sounds like a pretty good price, but ive never had one that i could replace the orings on, just clean it up with a wire wheel and lube the orings up good and pop it back together.
you sure your pump isnt leaking from the shaft seal?
