Radiator Reservoir cap.. gone?

Hey guys,
I opened my hood today, and I found out that my radiator reservoir cap is gone... wtf? lol

Is it ok to ride without it for awhile?
and
Will a Cherokee's radiator reservoir cap fit on my TJ's? I might just run to a junkyard and get one..?

Any help will be appreciated!

You will be fine. Try the Cherokee cap. If it fits your good to go. If not try anything. It's only there to keep junk from getting in.
