    Mopar OEM would be my first choice but have read positive reviews with aluminum radiators from Rock Auto under the Spectra brand. Some low price ebay radiators have had problems with poor fitment issues etc. Perhaps it's best not to skimp on important parts of your jeep

    You've got a good idea for the radiator and you're receiving sound advice. My suggestion is to put your Jeep up on ramps or a lift to either remove or replace the bottom hose and clamps. That gives you a good opportunity the check the steering and suspension parts, make sure it's all tight and go ahead and lube it. :)

    Steering with the acception of the box is all new and I lube my Jeep at least 4 times a year. I am replacing ball joints, and wheel bearing assemblies when I put the 4 inch lift next weekend
