No pics, as this scenario happened before camera phones and digi cameras, but I used 340 zip ties to mess with a buddy. I put em on the front axles axle end ujoinnts and some going on the rear dshaft by the tcase
Had him wondering for weeks what the noise was. Was a great prank
I did the same, on same buddys new mustang about a week ago. He acted really stupid , donuts and such. Next day I.did a zip tie going barely thru the wheel from the shock. Also did a hose clamp on the dshaft. He called me tonite about mad vibes and a clicking sound. I said that 8.8 musta broken a c-clip. He about to tear it down as we speak.
Reason for prank: he put a fake rattler tie to the brake with fishing line. I left work, hit brakes, felt something hit my leg. Looked down and was tossed up between shoot at it or jump out
You forgot to add duct tape! haha Ive got my vacuum canister held in with zip ties and used duct tape and some silicone to seal up all the useless holes in the fenders. On my brothers old Jeep the transmission cooler and the sway bar both use zip ties. His first Jeep we bought it without a fan shroud so used zip ties to hold the overflow bottle in till we got a shroud.

Don't forget bungee cords too. They make a great inexpensive shovel holder for the spare tire. I also use them around the rear seatbelts and the roll bar to keep from flapping with the top off.
Zip ties are everywhere under the Jeep. ARB air lines, wiring, etc. etc. I also use Zip ties for storing the soft top. Small ones to hold the two frame ends tight together, and one big one around the top to keep it all together. The whole soft top and frame can then be picked up and out of the Jeep as one easy to handle piece, then stored.
I have a 2" Velcro strap wrapped around my HiLift handle when I'm changing tires or what ever. It keeps the handle from dropping down and doing the "auto-drop" where it snaps up and down uncontrolled.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
