When my TJ radiator blew, I went to Mac's in Boise on Chinden. Think it was under $150 and they had it in stock. Sure, the Mopar radiator is a best buy but I would not hesitate to get one with a lifetime warranty. I know Mr Blaine and Jerry B and their advice is good however I would price that Mopar radiator first. You could try to talk with Dennis at Autozone in Mtn Home, he is my brother; call ahead and see what he can do for you. He works part time, not sure of the shifts.
Purple's water wetter is good for a max of 10* difference and the old stuff mixed with water and not antifreeze. You do not want to run your temp much lower than 200-210 as the computer will fight it and basically run worse. Pre computers, yes; now, no. Serious motored drag racers and mud racers use it, but they don't usually run a computer.
Change your thermostat which is likely what caused the problem; change your rad cap, and maybe the waterpump if you were having problems there. Be careful with the drain plug on the new radiator, they can strip out easily. Before you leave the parts house make sure there is one in the box.

Northwest Motorfest-will not have the rock crawling demonstration this year. The event is July 13 and 14th. Big Jack had a stroke recently and they were not even sure until a couple of weeks ago if the event would go on. There was not enough time to secure a sponsor to pay the fees to set up a course, etc.
Great cars and trucks to go check out though.

So you're going to crank your music to drive them away? Well that's sounds like a courteous thing to do.

Ok, I'll take the Steve Miller band over rap any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

You're forgiven...

Marble Canyon (aka Rattlesnake Canyon). Hardcore rock trail near Grandview. This buggy (Lehi's) has 44's or larger tires on it. The rocks in Marble Canyon like to roll under your rig and quite often have you turning into a turtle-high centered.

Hope that works because I don't know how to fix it.
