The radiators aren't hard to do on the WJ's. I would do a water pump, upper and lower hoses, and thermostat at this time. You're about an hour and half, maybe less from me. I live in Vernon (Mountain Creek). If you don't want to do it or need help I have plenty of tools and experience. Good luck.

Yeah I'm definitely 100% changing the thermostat. No sure spit the hoses, some say do it others say don't. Thanks for the offer, me and a friend of mine are going to be working on it hopefully this weekend. If we run into any problems I'll get in contact with you though

There's no reason not to change the hoses. I don't know why anyone would say not to do it...
If you need anything just PM me.

it wasnt to bad when I did my sisters 04, new thermostat, new radiator, new Chrysler specific coolant. All told about a Six pack's worth of work.... and a couple smokes...

the thing that took the most time was getting the hood to not smash the new rad. Hers was hit in the front before she bought it so it has even more issues than the average jeep......
