Could be just a worn rubber washer on one of the pipes to the radiator. If the unit was cracked it'd be pissing out everywhere. That on the other hand is if it IS antifreeze. What color is it? Check the color of your power steering fluid just in case. To do this, put a white plastic/paper sheet under the front end and leave it over night, then work out where abouts the leak is comin from.

check y0ur overflow hose at the neck of rad...I have the same problem. It all stemmed from the overflow hose route to the bottle. It was piched under the battery tay which blocked the flow.

When I purchased my 4.0 1999 Grand Cherokee, I had the dealer install a block heater. There weren't any problems for several years down the road until a small dripping leak of coolant developed around the o-ring where the heater mounts in one of the block's freeze plugs. Not saying this is the only place, but the leak would seal sometimes after the engine heats up, the reappear at a later date. Might check this area if you have a heater.
