Picked up a front sway bar out of an '01 WJ for my ZJ, and the trailer wiring for my folks' '04 WJ.

Over the weekend I installed my new stereo (JVC KD-X330BTS) and speakers (JVC CS-DR620). Ordered thru Crutchfield with a sale, buy that receiver and get speakers half off. Big improvement over the worn out stock stuff but is missing a little thump. I will replace the Infinity amp and put some subs under the rear seat later on.

Tried to pull the lower bolt out of the track bar Friday evening after work and before taking my girlfriend to dinner. With a ratchet on it, my feet against the tire, my body sideways, and both hands trying to break it loose, it didn't even budge. I really need to invest in an impact.

Have fun, I just did my rear and my impact wouldn't even touch it. Wound up using a pipe wrench in edge of that star head bolt

The rear track bar axle side bolt has threadlocker that is HEAT RELEASE on it, it's not going to come out without a fight unless you heat it up. Then it comes out real easy.

The front is just a pain.

Nice to know, should I have put thread locker back on it?

Wouldn't hurt, but I wouldn't be rushing to take it apart again just to add it.

I expected it to not be so bad. I guess I misjudged it. Lol. I'm going to try some heat and maybe a length of round tubing to get some leverage on it.
