Leaking radiator?

After just driving my jeep I came back out to look at it and notcied a huge puddle of what smelled like nothing so I assumed it was water/andtifreeze. My coolant resivior was empty.
Also, The whole underside of my jeep was wet, on the transfer case skid, oil pan, and tranny. Could this spray be from the radiator leaking? I think it could be time for a new radiator if this is my problem
If anyone could diagnosis this problem it would be appreciated.

Check the weep hole on your water pump. I bet that's the cause. Option 2 is probably the radiator.

did you get the OEM replacement radiator or go with a aftermarket one?
