it's very very common for TJs, the stock rad has a plastic top cam that crimped to the rad body, different materials expand/shrink at different rates, so it starts leaking over time.

buy a modine, I put one in my old xj and it worked extremely well. Also, you can get a gdi for relatively cheap online. What brand is the radiator on egay?

doesn't look like a name brand to me either, I would just stick with one of the name brand ones, unless you are feeling lucky
