I didn't hear anything on my way to work tonight. There's not much exposed strap, and the tail is pulled between the tight part of the strap and the tire. Then I rolled it up zip tied it and stuffed it through the window in the wheel. So far so good. Hopefully my Kolak order will show up early this week and I will be able to install everything on my days off(Tue Wed).

Looks good!
Not very difficult at all. It was more difficult getting the valve covers off than it was to install them lol. Just unbolt the old ones, bolt the new ones on, making sure their aligned properly, and torque them down.

Yeah, a little. The 33's don't really help, I'm sure it would be a much bigger difference on smaller tires, or lower gears.

You don't NEED anything else, no. But its not a bad idea to get hardened pushrods since you're in there anyways. I didn't upgrade anything else.

Have you upgraded the pushrods? If so, can we get a link? I'm thinking about doing this to my niner once I get a few checks from the Army rollin' in

Dropped the stock exhaust and started my dual exhaust project while going through the process of finding the cause of a light knock

My ZJ has been in the fam since '04 and I can't remember seeing it without one except when I pull the battery so I can take it to get emissions tested LOL

Changed out cam sensor, it was getting ratty looking, pulled throttle body and cleaned it and the IAC. Didn't look too bad but sure smoothed out the idle.
