It's a direct bolt on. Unbolt old one, bolt on new one, crack open a beer and smile.

ONLY the ZJ V8 tie rod and adjuster is solid and stronger compared to the hollow XJ AND ZJ normal ones.
It will just bolt in place as shown here: http://www.stu-offroad.com/misc/tierod-1.htm

You have to be far more specific as you dont mention if the ZJ is manual or auto or what yours is either?
This site will tell you once you have those specifics.

converting from the close system to open without changing your radatior using junkyard parts. Go to the yard and look for dakotas or durangos with a 4.7 and grab the upper hose to get there fill cap. Cut section out of the upper hose and install into it and find an any over flow bottle that will work. Block or elimitate the T'ed lines in the heater core and your done.

It will kinda look like this when your done except for the V8

What exactly does this do? (closed and open systems)

Re: Junkyard upgrades

It's not the XJ Country's that have taller suspensions (I have one). It's the XJ's with the 'Up Country' package. The package also includes skidplates (my XJ Country did not come with skid plates). -Jim C
