Do NOT use the band adjustments in the Haynes manual.
Get the proper factory specs from the fsm for your year. They changed between years often.

Haynes is a terrible manual to own, get a copy of the factory manual.

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

Haynes can be useful for photos. I use a combination of the FSM, Haynes and this forum. Both the FSM and Haynes can overcomplicate things, telling you to remove parts that don't need removing and making jobs longer than they need to be.

They're also good for lining the bottom of bird cages.

I use haynes, chilton, fsm and good ol jeep forum for all my needs. It's like detective work sometimes. You need everyone's stories to get the right one!

96 ZJ sittin up 6" on 35's with 4:56's and a 12k winch. Cuz...why the hell not!?

They were definitely building the 5.9s towards the end of 97 as a 98 model year of course.
