Water pump change out

I'm planning on replacing the water pump tomorrow on my 2011GC. The leak has begun to show and bearing is shot.

A couple questions if you guys can assist,

1. Should I be using the Mopar antifreeze or is there a suitable replacement at a local auto parts store. that works just as well? I'm looking to use a 50/50 mix

2. Are there any additional items that I should consider replacing even though there might not be any indications right now something needs replacement. Ex - thermostat, serp belt etc..? Just thinking ahead

Re: Water pump change out

I believe Zerex makes a Hoat for this. I would definitely change the thermostat as well. Not sure of your mileage but I changed my belt and idler tension pulley at 85K miles I have the 3.6 engine

Good luck!
