I have a 1998 Wrangler Sport. I have noticed small leaks of antifreeze but can't pinpoint it. Does not always leak. May go days and no leak, then all of sudden it reappears. Does not run hot and radiator remains full. Water pump going bad? Need help.
Also look at the radiator itself. Ours was doing similar, kept finding a drop or two here and there. Finally caught it in the act. The top left solder joint on the radiator was cracked,and it would weep coolant. If the Jeep was running down the road it would get blown back onto various spots on the engine. Soon as the engine would shut off the little bit of coolant on the radiator would evaporate from the heat.
Cleaned up the area and soldered the spot, no more problem.

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.
Where are you seeing the drip on the ground, more towards the radiator, front of the engine, rear, sides etc... There are a lot of places it could leak from. Coming from the back or sides then it could be your freeze plug has a small hole in it. From the front of the engine it could be the water pump, thermostat housing, hoses etc...
It could also be the radiator leaking at the seams. I have had 2 of them (plastic) do this in the past and they leak more when cold as they expand when they get hot. I have this same thing going on now with a Dodge truck using the same plastic radiator material. You need to find out where the fluid is coming from first of all.
Best bet is to have a compression test done. The mechanics around my area don't charge just for the test. I recently noticed a leak as well had the test done and found out it was just my water pump gasket.
