As far as I know you can only install sky hooks on a ZJ because it has a unibody and is very well balanced.
Only with a ZJ Got to love them!


Wow, My ZJ was really dirty back then!
This is a freaking cool picture... but, where are your drive shafts??

I would highly recommend also getting a muffler bearing gauge for your ZJ.
My left muffler bearing just went out and if I wouldn't have caught it quickly I could have really screwed something up!
I don't know why the ZJ's didn't come stock with one!



Get one before it's too late It saved my rear!

You should also be sure to get the compressor for the 9ers blinker fluid, since they use a much more dense fluid it is sometimes difficult for the 9er's to transport the fluids quick enough, but the compressor will add that little extra and make sure it gains some extra power and smoothness for the blinker fluid, (common fix for the 9ers Blinker Fluid Low issue)

That was dirty, this is clean! Although I have cleaned it up some more.


You know you drive a ZJ 5.9 when you spend too much time cleaning it.
I kind of enjoy laying under my ZJ and keeping her clean. Maybe I should seek a little

I still have a 249 TC and could burn out the VC when using sky hooks if I didn't remove the drive shafts. Also the muffle bearings where removed just to be safe.

I've never owned a zj with a carburetor belt, but I did install a new double roller throttle body chain. Love it as it never slips.

I installed a carburated antifreeze compressor for my water-cooled o2 sensors. Straight up bolt on for my power differential circulatory pump.

To help with the double roller throttle body chain I added some hydraulic chain tensors, they work great! I never have any slack. I did have to remove the pull starter though to get everything to fit right. But I think its worth it!
