    I would stick with OEM coolant. When it comes down to it it isn’t that much more expensive than an aftermarket coolant. Plus if you don’t do a complete flush and more of a drain and refill your only gonna need about 1 bottle.

    I flushed mine on my 2010 and have been using Prestone 50/50 yellow (OAT Formula) since 2011 no issues.

    If you go this route, even though it indicates as compatible with Mopar OAT, I would do a complete flush.

    Also, as mentioned - Mopar is not that much more. I did it for ease of refilling when needed.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
