Went to change the driver side cv boot. The slack was a little too much for my liking , so I'm going to get a rebuilt for $47.99 @ Auto Zone w/$10.00 core charge . Going to change the passenger side later ! Well I got the cv axle in and greased the tie rods and ball joint put the tire on, set it down, and took it for a test drive, NO CLICKING NOISE !!!!!!!! and a big from the little missus ! Damn this JEEP STUFF IS FUN !!!

the fabber39

I use the 98 FSM for my 97 all the time. I'm probably breaking my ZJ every time I work on it because of it.

I've used a 96 fsm for years on a 98 and 2 97s never had any major discrepancies or issues.

Here's a picture of 2 of the wheels I just painted. Don't mind the blue tape, that's marking the location of the wheel weight. Trying to finish the other 2 today.

That looks sweet! I need to do that to mine! Any ideas how it will hold up if you have your tires changed out?
OT: Finally transferred the head unit from my dead mustang to the zj. Now I just need to change out the blown speakers and suggestions on speaker brands/where to get them?

Crutchfield.com
They include brackets and adapters for installation and instructions for those of us who need them haha. I have kicker DS60's in mine and I love them... Unless you're planning on getting a new amp I wouldn't spend too much on speakers beacause the factory amp runs out of power long before my speakers ever reach their peak lol

I believe you should only need the new belt and a 14 or 15mm box end wrench. Place the wrench on the tensioner and rotate clockwise to remove the tension on the belt and then remove the belt.

Make sure you route the new one correctly and you'll be done in 5 minutes.

It is. It's a 15mm. And I've found it easier to use a ratchet. Theres a bolt through the face if the pulley. Loosen that a couple turns and then theres a bolt behind the pulley that actually moves the pulley up and down. Easy as pie. Just remember the route the belt follows

If you forget the belt routing there should be a picture of it right on top of the radiator. Theres a whole bunch of information there, actually.
