Great minds work alike. I have all those same tools. I live by Matco and Milwaukee. My wrangler too haha

Fit Coach Marshall says:

So everyone knows, factory radiator has a valve on bottom left, reachable at top of bumper level, that you can turn left and it will stream out rather than making a massive mess.

OEM radiators are prone to leak. My lasted somewhere around 60 70,000 mi and a 2018 JK. So instead of replacing it with the same Fiat radiator that Jeep uses (Jeeps are made by Fiat anymore in case you didn't know) I decided to upgrade to an all aluminum USA made performance radiator in August of 2020. Here I am 7 months later replacing that radiator because it started leaking too. I'm so tired of poor made poor quality parts. At least my radiator that I replaced it with is a lifetime warranty and now it's just an inconvenience and half a Saturday. The radiator I replaced it with is from a manufacturer called Cold Case. They have good ratings. So what am I radiator from cold case leak? All those Jeep is used for is a daily driver. Working back grocery store and back.

Great video! What lift is on that Jeep?

kurt nulf says:

when the time comes that I replace my jk radiator its a good idea to replace the hoses ,cap and the water pump also once the radiator is out you have good actress to the water pump and since you stated it has 200,000 miles am sure yours needs replacing also

Getting ready to do this job on a buddy's jeep and wanted to see what i'd need for tools. Solid video, my man. I'd buy you a beer for your busted knuckle and still filming everything.

Quite interesting, the coolant is GREEN in my 2010. Had it serviced at a dealership.

Stan B says:

Thank you for the video!
RockAuto has all-aluminum with two rows of cooling lines from CSF. It costs less than MOPAR OE. Too bad MOPAR does not have all-metal upgrade.The hybrid plastic-metal are all cheaper, 60-100, but i would not trust the plastic. Could not find all-metal thermostat housing for a reasonable price. When it crack, i'll do it separately with less hassle, it's at a high point.

Lol I love ur “socket holder”

Shop told me this would be a 800$ job bc the condenser had to be moved ? What the hell is he talking about I’ve changed the radiator once already and never had an issue with the condenser

Ismael Carrillo says:

Got a 2014 with the same leak same area.

Prismatic Charms says:

Chuc Mung says:

people who claim to be "engineers" design this crap. Waiting for my Tesla truck in 2021. Welcome to the new world of design and the demise of Car Dealer ripoffs, no more $1000 labor bills for a $200 part

frank jerseytomato says:

simply2fab says:

Solid video, looking to do the same and will be my first – can you give a ballpark for how long it took you? Thanks.
