All you need are the ZJ cables, nothing else. Bough mine from Rock Auto, was DORMAN Part # C660058. On Rock Auto they have pictures, just double check it's the correct ends before buying.

Thanks. Just ordered them. I was under my jeep the other day and realized that it didn't even have the bracket for the cables to attach to. Not sure why anyone took the time to remove it, but I got one from a part out.

Totally forgot about this.

Everything got done before school started. From the last picture I was scrambling to get it done and don't have any more pics. Basically though I got new Nitro Chromoly shafts with Spicer joints installed and new Spicer ball joints. Got everything buttoned up and went wheeling with unlimited04. This was unfortunately my last wheeling trip of the year!



This is late August of last year. As of now that axles are doing great, not issues. Can't wait for summer to come and do some more wheeling.

Update:

Changed the gear oil in both axles this morning! The gears look GREAT! Rear oil definitely need to be changed, it had turned into a nice metallic paste, and the front was a bit metallic. I think the obvious answer to that is the rear is the main drive axle where the front just spins not under load. I think I can call the gear install a 100% success.

Great write-up. I just made a large order from ECGS and re-read your thread. I have a buddy that's going to weld my brackets and install the gears front and rear.
