Default Radiator Hoses '93 Hardbody

The Nissan dealer I go to said they discontinued the radiator hoses for my '93 Hardbody. It's a 4cyl. KA24E engine and stock.

Any suggestions or recommendations as to where I can get close to factory replacements?

Much Appreciated

Gates makes all the replacement hoses. I’ve had very good luck with all of them.

+1 for Gates. Almost all of the hoses in my truck were replaced with new Gates ones in 2012. They've been holding up fine.
