He was just driving to work lol! All I had here at the house to get him going again was a 249 from a 95 v8 ZJ. He has a 97 with a 4.0

Does it make sense to anyone else that we had to cut the shaft about a half inch to make it bolt up to his tranny?

Best upgrade that I have ever made to my Jeep, by far! The amount of braking power and the pedal feel are worth it alone! It is truly a night and day difference! I can only imagine how good they would work on a stock size wheels and tires.

If I had known what a difference it would make I would of had them waiting for me before I got my Jeep home 3 years ago.

I have a 94' grand cherokee that I just bought and I will be installing another Vanco brake kit on it ASAP.

Stupid Canadian/Quebec politics are making us pay the European market price when we should be paying close to what you guys are!

On topic: today I DROVE my ZJ! After starting a new job where I walk from home, it's nice to get back in the drivers seat! Especially with all the recent fixes and maintenance, she's running well



Even with the high gas prices, I still smile when I drive the ZJ (buddy snapped this pic quick today)

Putting new head lights and grill on mine tomorrow. Been waiting for this stupid part to come in. Now if only I could find someone to purchase the other one now setting in my yard that I have no use for...life would be going pretty good.

Oh, anyone lookin for a 5.9 and in GA/southeast area? If so i found this one http://chattanooga.craigslist.org/cto/3194531126.html i assume it's still avialable, I'd love to get it but I for sure can't afford it.
