just wanted to raise my voice at how CHEESY some of the STOCK PARTS have been
i only got 185,000 miles out of the stock radiator hoses on my Y2K, 4.0L, CHEROKEE!!!
FORTUNATELY the first failure was next to the thermostat housing & i was able to just cut the holy portion off, push the shortened hose back on the housing, clamp it & continue my trip
it was ALSO fortunate that there was a coiled garden hose hooked to a faucet beside the curb where i pulled over
coolant spewing on the hot engine produced an immediate steam event, which alerted me and i was able to pull over, affect repairs and continue my trip w/o any overheating issues and no engine damage
when i got home, i had all the hoses & belt changed out
185,000 miles, GO FIGG'R
