Glad I'm not the only one who parks next to the window when I'm at work so I can stare at my ZJ

The only difference is the amount of current output. Hooks up the same

got a new moog sway bar link from amazon and the top ball joint spins when I put a nut on it and try to tighten it. the passenger side link, that is still original, doesnt spin and I can tighten it with no problem. my question is, do I have to put more grease into the ball joint because it already came greased? or do I have a defective part?

I have moogs in mine and didn't have an issue tighten it down... Mine came pre greased and ready to go in. Maybe pump more grease in?? That's odd

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Got my header delivered today.

In 2 weeks I'll be doing my 99+ intake, header, "703" injectors, new valve cover gasket and new PCV grommets and PCV valves.

Then I need to buy my exhaust. It's gonna be 2.5" from the header collector back
