Strangest radiator leak I've ever seen

I noticed over the weekend that I had a cooland leak. After cleaning the whole thing up and crawling under it I found that where the tranny cooler line comes in to the lower tank is cracked. I haven't been wheeling in months so I know that there was nothing that hit the line. It just cracked by itself.
I'm going to JB weld it until I get some time(and money) to replace the radiator. I know this though, the next one will be all metal, the plastic just lost my confidence.

Any suggestions for a good 2 or three row source?

Griffin, Howe, Ron Davis, Champion, or AFCO. Ive run all of them in different applications with good success. Stay away from B-Cool. Ive heard good things about 4WD Hardware house brand.
