Default Suzuki Samurai coolant?

Maybe a stupid question but anyway:
I've recently bought a Suzuki Samurai (1992 model) and I'm thinking about flushing the radiator - the truck is only going to be used for off-roading but it's been a bit neglected and I intend to give it an overhaul before using it. I understand that it's not a good idea to mix the different types of coolant which is fine, I think it's got orange stuff in it at the mo, but as its probably been years since it was flushed out I'm going to start from scratch. The service manuals I've found online suggest Golden Cruiser 1200 - no idea what that is but it seems my choice is between silicate based or OAT based coolant - anyone know which I should use?

Thanks

Flush it and use Prestone.

Use a no silicate coolant as its not good on aluminum
