01 Coolant Reservoir

Howdy all.
I have an 01 Classic, and I've com across a crack at the seam on my coolant reservoir. It's right at the top ad is about a half inch long. Now I've never overheated and I don't think it's been there for that long, but I wa wondering if i could fix it with some JB weld, or if i need to replace it. Is the overflow reservoir a pressurized area that needs a proper seal?

Don't use JB Weld, as the flexible nature of the recovery tank will make the JBWeld want to separate from the tank.

Clean the area with sandpaper and some degreaser, and repair the crack with RTV Silicone rubber.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

I had to replace mine awhile back because something sharp on the body where it was resting poked a hole in the bottom of it. It was less than $20 and the only extra thing I needed was a tiny clamp for the hose.
