I was going to go with the AC Delco APP985s, but NAPA quoted $15 each for them up here in the frozen north. No complaints with the Champions though.
Holy smokes I bought some for the wife's WK last weekend and they were only $3.xx here.

Since 4WP owns Rubicon Express now, I wonder just how much "falling out" was involved or was it more a case of "we're going to pimp our in-house product over yours" ?

Just ordered a replacement radiator (Ready Rad) from Advance Auto, along with a new 195 degree thermostat and gasket. I've seen topics about these radiators not being great, but I had a coupon code for $40 off any purchase over $100 and I'm broke--so for a total of a little less than $130, wishful thinking that it will do the trick.

Drilled more holes in it. Also cleaned out a lot of sand and mud from the interior.

I've yet to pull my seats. How difficult/time consuming is that? I'd like to pull my interior out to clean the bedliner really well before taking off the tonneau cover and putting my windows/top on for the winter.
