My bad for the spelling on that one, freakinheep thanks for the info, I've looked it up not to long ago and I was gonna adjust the linkage but I just wanted to find out if it was common or that my transfer case was shot, and as for tow points im working on doing that now, my rad supports surprisingly still solid but id love a KOR rad support, I've been planning on getting one since I got my jeep but..... my job sucksssssss so I don't have much money to work with.... at all lol but me and my dad are working on just getting oem tow hooks from a junk yard, better than nothing right?
Oh and zander im probably gonna try some of that, I do plan of offroading but im deff gonna try some of that other stuff
Yeah the factory tow points are better than nothing, but I ripped one off getting pulled of of a hill, so keep that in mind when using them. Dont snatch with them.
IMO, the best thing to address first on a ZJ that you could DIY,
Lighting- Factory ZJ lights suck. If you are good with wiring, a few hours and some supplies will get you better current to the lights, which have crappy harnesses to begin with. Also, AM autoparts.com has the headlight lenses, brand new for $40 shipped for both, with bulbs.

[QUOTE=slayercr23;12630497]How would i go about Stroking it?[/QUOTE]
your transfer case shifting problem might have something to do with this part. look under your jeep at your linkage...there is a midshaft that the rods rotate on that is supported by 2 brackets, one on the side of the tranny and one on the body. the tranny side has a grommet that gets worn out and the shaft will pop out and hang and cause hard shifting. for 2 bucks, this little grommet makes a big difference.
yeah lets see em did you just wind up drilling into the unidody rail and does anyone know how strong they really are? Saw a write up on another website where the guy took one bolt off the bottom radiator mount and then just drilled another hole to mount the hooks. looks easy and much less then spending the hundred for the factory brackets in the front. Any thoughts ?
you need a backing plate. the unirails are not strong enough to hold onto the hook with any force applied.
seen a couple guys turn their recovery points into missiles because of improper mounting for the expected force applied.
'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
Yeah, I had to drill the rad support bolt to 1/2" and drill a second whole... took 3 hours though but it came out pretty well. And I do know its not gonna be as strong as like a KOR rad support but hey, I saved like $100 so I think it was worth it. And I don't plan to do any serious offroading that id need much more strength
Im not up state at all lol I live in Suffolk county, its in the middle of the island, there's not to many place to wheel around here... the sickest spot here I went to and got busted for trespassing.... but I know a another place with no posted signs and its a popular place around here.
