Driving to work this morn I see white smoke coming out from the grill at stop lights. Popped the hood, and driver side top corner of the radiator is steaming away.
I haven't even got to my cv's yet and now she's crying for more parts.
Checked the local part stores and found one for 150 bux. Not too bad of a price I guess.
Will I ever get cought up on maintenance enough so I can do fun mods instead of replacing things?

do you have the I6 or the v8? my radiator did the same thing and I have the v8. It was really easy to replace. if you have the v8 and have questions let me know. I replaced mine less than a month ago.

No ****. And I ordered rear shock bushings sleeves from KOR last week, paid as much in shipping as the part cost, and I'm still waiting on the part a week later. I think I'm going to start a "KOR is a bunch of d-bags" thread. Let em see what jeepers think of their deals and shipping prices/times. Hell, priority mail would be here by now and cost $9 insured. Instead, I got to pay $17 FedEx ground that takes a week on am $18 part that fits in a ziploc. Ok, just needed to get that out
