I don't think that will help, the leak is from the seals going bad. The "core" refund is where you give the store your old part. Generally done with parts that can be rebuilt.

The new box will...

Do not ignore vibrations, shimmies, wobbles. Losing a drive shaft on the freeway will cause a ton of damage and cost you a lot of money.

If you are running larger tires it isn't that rare. The stock gear isn't really that robust. Mine is doing the same thing, but much worse. If you are absolutely sure it isn't the hose, you can get a...

I would be concerned about your CV joint if it's chirping. Disconnect your front shaft at the diff and tie it up out of the way, don't need to pull all the way off just yet. Drive around and see if...

Yeah, I'm seeing the more and more that I read, the more I find I am an idiot to pay someone else to do it.

Did you burp the system when you replaced the radiator? You could just be working the air bubbles out, causing your levels to drop.

Are there any distressing symptoms, other than coolant loss? I...

Is there a sealed beam option for those of us who can't spend 100 bones on lights right now? Something around 20 bucks that are better? Or are all sealed beams just awful?

I would imagine there should be something stamped on the inside (model # or serial #), behind the housing. Maybe? Are you able to open it up?

I agree with these guys. Just sell the 4 banger and find a 4.0. Although if you have deep pockets, money is no option, and you just have to keep your rig you might as well go for a V8.

CJ and YJ owner HATED the TJ when it first came out. The biggest complaint was that it wasn't rugged. It was seen as being too "car like" in the interior.
