Radiator Leak

So my radiator has been flying threw coolant and I know there was a small leak with the hose but then I kept seeing a bigger spot on the passenger side by the drain plug. I went ahead and changed the hose out today and that is all ready to go but just above the plug it continues to leak and im not sure what it is. I narrowed it down and found the location so ill post a picture up and I was hoping someone could help me trouble shoot a little. Thank in advance

If you look close you can see a little coolant dripping on the back half of that bracket

Make sure that you are not losing coolant into your oil. I doubt it, but double check. This is a common problem with Jeeps. Sometimes the leak will be small and go on for years and sometimes it rips the plastic radiator apart. The stop leak stuff can plug the radiator or heater core so I am not a fan of that product. You can change out the radiator or continue to watch the coolant. Just remember that if it is leaking the day may come where it will leave you stranded. I would just change out the radiator, but that is just me. Stick to a OEM radiator or an all metal one. The cheap ones from Autozone are not OEM radiators and have been prone to go out even with their lifetime warranty. Save your self money and time and just change it out once.
