Re: Cooling Problem. Any suggestions?

While we are discussing the cooling problems, did a CJ ever come with an overflow bottle? I'd like to add one to mine, but I'd like a decent looking bottle. NOT just any bottle bungie corded to my inner fender.

If the CJ never had one, how about a nice aftermarket bottle?

Any suggestions?

My CJ came with an overflow bottle. It was in bad shape, however, so I replaced it with a generic one (got it at Discount, I think). Make sure you get the new style cap, it's a little different from the ones without the overflow bottle.
