Noticed coolant underneath, mostly on the center link / drag link that ran over to the passenger side but also on the axle as well. Looking up from underneath the bracket the steering box is on is wet but I can't really tell without digging further. Anything like that common on this POS? No coolant topside tho, I know that's common but.....?

Anyone thinking about buying one of these hunks of junk, mine has 27,5k and it's been broken more than it runs.

Looks like it's the bottom rad hose. Odd, this is rad #3 but they never changed the hoses, only the faulty style radiator. Are these as simple as it looks? Pull the lock ring out, take a bath in coolant, snap in the new? What about the flange it mates to, does that get replaced as well? How fun is that?
