Re: Build thread: daily driven tow rig

Get the kit. It is something like this:

I don't know how much those vary by year. That particular one was the right one for my '96 XJ and for The Varmints' "97 ZJ.

Be prepared for a bit of battle with that monster Torx bolt. It was no problem on my "96, but the ZJ was tight. You will want leverage. The socket won't fit, but you can take the insert out of the socket and use a doubled up wrench on that. Or you can get the L-shapted Torx wrench (like an allen wrench) and add a cheater pipe on that.
