'03 Liberty Sport Radiator leak

The radiator is leaking on the top driver side. Don't get that much heat from the heater either.

1) Can I replace this myself OR do I need special tools other than a ratchet, pliers, a screw driver and some time?
2) Where can I get a new radiator at a reasonable price?
3) How long to replace?
4) Can I just use something to stop the leak?

Yes you can do it yourself with regular tools (no special tools required)
I got mine here: http://moparonlineparts.com/mop-parts/#parts
Definitely get a Mopar. Aftermarket rads don't last in these vehicles (I know from personal experience)
First time give yourself a couple hours. After that you could probably do it again in less than one hour.
Stop leaks are never a permanent fix and doing it right is the way to go. The stop leak stuff may work for a bit in an emergency but probably do more harm than good in the long run.

BTW make sure you refill with HOAT coolant. None of that "universal" stuff.

02blue is wise. Absolutely go with a Mopar radiator.
