Is the benefit of HP that there are more splines to make contact with, thus spreading the load across more area on the Axles....?????

noo....

the drive shaft is up higher and out of the way, and the HP is stronger because of the way the stresses are exerted on the axle... i dont know the exact science.

Awesome, I figured it was mostly bolt in. Thanks!

xj's use different attachment style for the sway bar endlinks. you may need a different driveshaft, zj's like cv joints everywhere for some reason.

all brackets are in the same locations though. if you want to retain abs you'll want to use your knuckles, xj non abs knuckles don't even have the boss cast in for the abs sensor.

though abs can be a drawback on the trail anyways.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
