Sounds like a head gasket.

Check your overflow and make sure it's not leaking

If not head gasket ( my first guess ) is you might have a loose hose and it is spraying coolant. See if any is on hood or fan.

It might be old coolant from a leak. If you don't see and oil in coolant or coolant in oil not a head gasket. Also you would see white smoke for that gasket.

With the engine dead cold remove the radiator cap and check the coolant level, if it is full put the cap back on, if not top it off with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water and put the cap back on. check the overflow tank if it is at the cold line leave it there, if not fill it to the cold line, Monitor the overflow tank level over the next few days when the engine is cold.

If the level drops you have a leak somewhere, then you will need to evaluate where. If there is no drop in the level then it is probably from a previous leak, wipe it down and monitor the place where you found it, if it returns then you will have to trace it further.

Yea I been checking the the fluid on the radior n the over flow the raider stay the same but I think it's been taking the antifreeze from the over flow. Do any one know if the antifreeze go through the intake manifold ? Cause it look like it leaking from there

Should not be in manifold. You can try taking a highlighter and drip some water through the sponge and it will put blacklight reactive fluid in radiotor. Drive for a full day and that night take a black light under hodd or where you think the leak is and you will see it glow. Leak found

Well it's an option if want to try. If not overheating you should be fine. Just remember jeeps leak. Very common problem. If anyone ask why just say it's marking it territory lol
