    I would bring it back to the dealer. We had two JK's on the last ride to Dry River and if I remember correctly, they both had issues with the radiator, but one eventually kicked on later.

    Shoot Dragline a pm, he has a JK and learned a lot about his on the last ride.

    I second the dealer. Don't touch that sucker cause it may void the warranty. On such a new jeep, that would be sad.

    Yup, I agree, take it back to the dealership. Sounds like a defective cap or a hair line crack around the filler neck. I thought I had radiator problems but everything is fine, sometimes it seems like the fan doesn't seem to kick on when it should. Miljeep is right, I learned a lot about the JK on the last ride, especially about the emissions (evap can) system. Make sure the switch (white in color) on the back evap can is keyed and locked in, if not it will come out at the most inopportune time and mess up a lot of stuff.

    Take it to the dealership.

    Also for you JK owners out there that like water and bogging, you might want to check your air intake. They are lower than the TJ's were.

    That's reassuring. At least you didn't have to pay for it.

    Where are our Jeeps manufactured now? More importantly...where were TJ's manufactured?
