Anti-freeze again

I hate to bring this up again, but I couldn't find a definative answer by searching.

My 98 Trep overheated today (the radiator fan harness came loose) and it looks like just about all the coolant boiled out. I went to Pep Boys and the dude behind the parts counter punched in his computer and said the orange Prestone 5/150 is recommended. It says on the bottle that it is Compatible with DC vehicles 2001 and newer, and HOAT formulations including Zerex G-05. Sys it meets the specifications for DC MS-7170, MS-9769 Is this the right stuff for my 98?

DO NOT USE DEX COOL!!! I started to do some digging for info and found out that they had alot of sludging problems with it....And I believe it. My brother had 2 Malibus with the orange Dex Cool, and had cooling related problems with both. Thank god, I didn't put this crap in my Trep....I am returning the 2 gallons I bought to Walmarts tomorrow and stopping by the dealer and getting the green stuff (Mopar)....better to pay more than have big problems down the road....
