Default Heater Core replacement

Could anyone out there please let me know what the correct replacement heater core is for a 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4 door, six cylinder 4x4? A link would be great if possible. Thanks!

This is a thread showing how to replace the heater core without having to take the dash apart. Heater Core Swap in 30 Mins

It isn't hard if you want to do it the easy way. Just cut the incoming and outgoing lines to the core, remove the bracket under the dash by cutting it, cut new lines to the same length, secure the core with heater hose and clamps, then pop rivet the removed bracket back into place using some small c channel. I fixed mine this way and have not had a problem. When it goes again, it will be another easy fix.

Did mine this way in 2.5 hours last Saturday, including bumping the system afterwards (would have been quicker if I could have found my stupid hack-saw, haha!). Mines a 2013. I cut the bracket a little differently than some of the others, and was able to just leave it out. I lost one mounting screw below the glove box near the center consul, but you can't tell it isn't there, everything is still very solid. So I'm happy.
