Thermostat Housing Spewing Coolant HELP

SO i decided that I would change up the thermostat, easy enough. Well now i have gasket #2 on there and I thought it was fine, till it reached operating temp and not its literally spraying fluid out of the housing. I think it may have a crack in it? Ideas? I replaced all of the hoses and the thermostat. Where can i find a new housing for it? I dont even know what to take pictures of if you guys want to see, so please anything you can do.

You can buy that housing, look online, Napa has it and I think Autozone too. You can also upgrade to a high flow model, there's a thread on here with a pic of it, I found it when I replaced my system.

right here where I said:

Store Locator | NAPA Online

If the link doesn't work, just go to napaonline and select your vehicle and search thermostat housing.

Man, your napa guy stinks. I can walk into the local napa place and describe a part and this guy will find it. Here, I think the one you're talkin about is the third one down:

OEM Replacement Hoses and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH3


and here:

Cooling System Parts - Radiators, Water Pump, Fan, Radiator Hoses & Belts for Jeep Cherokee XJ by Morris4x4

or here:

Search Results - Quadratec
