Default Radiator Replacement 98 ZJ

Sorry if this has been gone over before, but the search function isn't working on my wife's Iphone.
I need to replace my radiator and have never done it before. I'm wondering how difficult it is and what all goes into the process. I've done basic things before such as brakes, starter, alternator, etc. So I'm hoping it's something I can handle. Thanks for any help.

You expect me to read every word in a title? The radiator is a piece of cake ro replace. Drain the coolant, remove the hoses and cooler lines from the radiator, remove the shroud, remove the top of the core support, a couple of bolts and it's out.

Yeah....98.
Thanks for the info, sounds managable. Are there any common sticking points I need to worry about?

There may be a clip that holds a transmission cooler line to the shroud that might give some issues, and the factory hose clamps can be a real pain if they're positioned facing down.
