Long weekend ahead with my 2001 TJ I6

I've been putting this off for a couple weeks, but can't wait any longer...
I could probably google this and get the info, but i would rather get it from you guys who know whats best for my boy.

My jeep has been over-heating in stop and go traffic..I would have to turn on the heater on to cool it down enough to get to work, and after reading some posts in this forum(which is fantastic by the way)I discovered that my radiator is clogged and it needs to be replaced. Does anybody have a part# for that radiator, and is replacing it a one man job?
Also my valve cover is leaking from the back and I'm going to replace the gasket on that as well..Anybody have a part# and can I handle that myself? I'm fairly mechanically inclined, but not a pro by any means.. I'm also gonna replace the plugs(APP985?) and wire set and the oil pressure gauge(part# difficult to replace?)is not functioning properly and it needs to be replaced as well.
I'm dreading this like a whoppin from the old man, but its got to be done

Some of the old timers say that the Stock one is just fine. If you have extra $ you can buy a full aluminum bling rad if you like.
