Installing Aluminum radiator

I'm looking to put an aluminum radiator in to replace the original which is leaking. My question is how how is this to do? Can I do it myself or should I just let a shop do it?

It's a cake walk, If you have a helper it can be done in less than 1 hour. I just did my 02 a month ago. 3/8 ratchet, some metric sockets deep and short well. a drain pan and pliers.

Jeep TJ - Metal 3 Core Radiator Installation

Pretty easy overall. I would definitely do it yourself. It's the first thing I ever did with no experience. If you have any trouble you can PM me

Doing this install yourself will be a great learning experience. I highly recommend it.

Check out another helpful install guide here: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/yhst-...stallGuide.pdf
