Thank you Jerry. I've had good luck with Gates in the past. I'll look into them.

I did order the Mopar radiator after some research and personal experience. My previous TJ I used an all steel radiator and it didn't cool as well as the factory setup. A friend of mine tried several all aluminum aftermarket radiators and had major quality issues. He had to return 2 or 3 before he got one that didn't leak. So I'll stick with the Mopar radiator and just get some Gates or Goodyear hoses. Thank you again.
