Without a ratcheting wrench, the driver side sucks. Otherwise, it's a pretty easy job.

On both sides, as well a MOPAR one for the rear driver side window. Tomorrow I'm hooking up my factory fog lights and possibly getting never used Bushwacker fender flares and 1.25" wheel spacers (4) from a dude on CL for only 400, but even then I'm gonna try to talk him down to like 200.

Looks just like the Delco starter I put on mine a few weeks ago. At least they're stupidly easy to change on a V8 ZJ.
