Alright guys so today I lifted up my hood and noticed a wet fluid spot on the inside of the hood, I looked to see where it was coming from then cleaned it up but i noticed it again tonight.

My questions:
1. any idea what it's coming from?
2. Just wanna make sure, should there be anything in the empty spot in the far right corner?
3. Being safe, are the way i positioned my lights/winch cables ok, any better way?

Just wanna make sure everything is OK, thanks for the responses! The Empty spot? My winch and Light wires, all safe or a better way?

Is your radiator cap seated properly and tight?

Is your radiator wet around the cap/ edges? Mine does this too but not as bad. It's been going on for a few months and as long as I keep it topped off with coolant I don't really worry about it.

I think you guys are right, I just went out and looked and unscrewed the radiator cap and it doesnt look like its screwed on all the way. The fluid is the same color as the stuff on the hood, I tried to get it back down but it wouldnt budge. IDK if the PO replaced the radiator or not.

When I first got my jeep the owner had the radiator replaced before I picked it up and it took me a little while to notice the cap wasn't seated right and fluid was weeping out. The cap will only properly sit if it's put on correctly, notice the notches on the cap and radiator.
