Re: WJ brake upgrade for a 2001 XJ... Simplified?

01 XJ, 4.5" lift
JKS O/A trackbar mount with RE1615 frame side bracket.
JKS drag link & tie rod with WJ ends Mounted on top (Goferit inserts).
Question is
What Pitman arm are you guys running, Last time I did this I used an arm (I was told) that came off of a big Wagoneer, a buddy recommends a ZJ pitman for the 1" drop.
Thanks in advance

Thats all an aspect of how you setup your trackbar.

I always use a stock pitman arm.

Using the JKS Axle bracket top hole & the. RE frame bracket, the drag link @ the pitman arm seems to be about 1" higher than the track bar connection.
A ZJ pitman should line up drag link & track bar on frame side.
What do you think?

Re: WJ brake upgrade for a 2001 XJ... Simplified?

Front brake Hoses, I have a pair of 95 Chevy truck front hoses (ACDELCO 18J2677) they are plenty long, BUT it looks like they are going to contact the tires at full turn, Is it safe to use a tubing bender to bend the tube on the caliper end inward to keep the hose away from the tire? take a look at the photos below.
What Brake lines work best with the conversion? Can someone recommend some stainless braided hoses? PS: My XJ sits at 4.5" lift.

You don't need a tubing bender. I use those same brake lines on the team naxja car.

Just bolt everything up, and then bend them with your hand. They hold up fine.
