You'll be ok. Just stick em in there. I kind of like it when they blink faster. I never had a problem with them in my XK. They were some cheap ebay specials too. I probably paid what you did for mine. If you have a link to them, and they light up, I might be interested in some too

You got it right, I think. I was unaware that any ZJ came with factory sliders. Some came with dealer installed side steps and all of them come with rockers that rust out (but they're part of the unibody so I don't know how you'd get one of them off at the JY). If the Orvis came with sliders, I know my next mod.

One per coil. I put two in the front sandwiching the BB to even it out.

yep. it was just me being ignorant and not realizing the difference between and step bar and rock slider. they look similar, so this entire time i thought they were the same thing.

So just thought about this while at work. The jeep had 227,xxx on it. Who wants to guess that the tv cable has never been adjusted? I think I'll do that this afternoon.

To be honest I don't know what it stands for. But It's the throttle cable. And with time it stretches
