      Yes, the TJ and Grands are almost identical in axle mounting and width.

          You dont NEED ABS, just dont hook it up and dont worry about it. I pulled all the ABS crap out of my XJ years ago and have never worried about it.

            Or a pic on the 8.8 in mine? Seriously, ABS in a jeep is not needed. Once you get into bigger meats, you'll have a hard time locking up the stock brakes anyways.

              ^^^^^

              I beg to differ.

                  ive got an 8.8 in my jeep. i just was saying the abs is different, so its not direct swap in. im not saying it cant be done, just used the wrong words. anything can be done with the right tools and know how. ABS is a waist of time as soon as you hit gravel in my opinion anyways. though I wouldnt want to mess with the GC's ABS because it goes through the ECU and stuff.. kinda scary to mess with that..

                      Good news on my end. I DO have a master cylinder, not a motor.


                      Of course, leaving at 4:45am and getting home at 7:30pm makes it difficult to see in the dark. That and I had been too tired/lazy to get my flashlight and pop the hood.
                      Thank goodness for Sundays off.

                      8.8 here I come!!
