I just used the stock one for my swap.  Actually, I think my current one is alluminum but it is a "stock" radiatior for a 73-87 C10.

How did you run the hoses? That's one of the main things that puzzles me

Get stock hoses that would fit a 2000 or whatever year truck it came from. I believe I had to trim one or both of the hoses but they worked.

Don't be fooled by anyone telling you LS motors take some kind of funky radiator.  If you have a good radiator in the truck (HD and preferable aluminum) just bolt it up like stock and run any 1999-up upper/lower radiator hose and trim to fit as nucknoel89 posted.
