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

Velcro the rear seatbelts to the rollbar when the soft windows are out or top down, keeps them from flapping in the wind.

I don't know that I have any pictures, buy I have zip ties everywhere. Between the wiring, fuel system, transmission lines, and anything else, there's a range of small to big!

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.

Mine:

Note: this is temporary

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.
