Xpress Flush the coolant, run some radiator flush then drain, refill with fresh fluid then put a new radiator cap on.

4x4mike I believe that every lb of pressure the cap has it adds 3 degrees to the boiling point of the coolant.

goatman I would also flush the coolant if it has not been done in awhile along with a new cap. Make sure everything is in good condition to prevent boiling over as being stranded is no fun.

Handcannon44 cool thanx for the insight my cap says 16 pounds is that the right one

4x4mike A lot of people don't realize that something so small can do a lot for a vehicle, the radiator cap raises the pressure in the radiator which will also raise the boiling point of the coolant. glad u fixed that problem before something worst happens to your jeep, like blow head gasket.

gfarris It's the radiator cap. Only had mine for 2 weeks and drove to meet friends 4 hours away to show it off, and had the same problem. Replaced the cap an "No Mas"!

or is this normal
As long as it isn't overflowing out of the expansion tank you should be fine, that's why it's there. If the radiator cap is over 10 years old I would replace it anyway. Make sure the replacement is the correct psi.
