Thanks man. This is actually my entire wiring system. Everything else in the truck will be removed and this setup will be in a custom made center console all within reach while in the 5 point harness. This, the radio above it, and gps-gauges is all I will have. The switch bank is from eBay. I think it was $59 with breakers, it's for marine use that's why it has goofy markers.

The TCCM probably didn't need to be changed, but I got it off eBay for $15. It's such a common thing to break on those, when they're in the passenger kick panel. It turned out mine was burried in the dash. I still decided to swap it just because I had it though. I like the mechanically controlled cases a lot better.
241 was the only cheap way to have a mechanical transfer case that bolts to a turbo 350 transmission that is a driver drop case. This zj is getting a gm 5.3, th350, 241 case.

That looks great. While you still can I would weld some bearing cap supports. Not needed, but easy to do now.

Haven't done anything today, but just want to brag on my Jeep club. Red Dirt Jeeps kicks a**. You all are great, but its awesome finding a wealth of help/information/wheeling buddies just around the corner. We have 179 members right now and always have activities and wheeling trips. If anyone is in Oklahoma, get with me so you can get with RDJ's.

If you have the skills, do this. Take the wheel, caliper and rotor off. Remove the three bolts that secure the hub assembly to the axle - probably good to get your ABS sensor removed and out of the way. Remove the entire hub assembly (including the nut and axle) as everything comes out in one piece. Find a way to take it off using a cheater bar and vise, or take it to a mechanic and pay him for removing the nut. When you take your axle out, keep in mind that if the Zj is lifted high enough on the side you remove, then your diff fluid won't leak out.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

I put mine boot down cause from what I have read, unlike most shocks, on the bilstiens if you dent the body, it will **** the shock. They aren't as durable as most shocks.
