It kinda pissed me off, I ended up draining the radiator and pulling the lower radiator hose to put it in only to find out I'd have to modify the sway bar mounts. I coulda squeezed it in there but my trans cooler lines get in the way.

i've got addco bars, the clamps are even thicker with a higher ridge than stock. i used a piece of 3/16" flat stock under the back 2/3 of the bushing/clamp that the brace doesn't sit under. fits like it was meant to. too bad the addco poly bushings squeak like crazy no matter what i do.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Try adding a grease zerk to the bracket, or get the energy bushings if they fit your application. They did not have them for the front on the WJ so I made my own, it works pretty good.

Yeah, Kevin wasn't kidding when he said you should use the EB clamp...I found out the hard way too

Bought 2 tweeters and a fog at the junkyard for $10.50. Hopefully these tweeters are a little better than my blown ones that like to work occasionally. Also stopped to talk to a guy about 2 5.9's he had on his used car lot. One looked like sort of a basket case, and the other looked like a basket case that he had spent some time trying to cover up.

Make sure you put the correct winter air in the tires.

Dillion, you got one of the cleanest ZJ I have seen. Very nice.

Drove it to the airport to drop someone off.
