For anyone interested in doing this swap I've complied a list of pictures and a MS Word Document with instructions. When I did the swap I couldn't find pics to go along with the instructions so I took my own. If you have any questions feel free to PM me and I will do my best to help you out.

Stock front mounting plate; nothing done yet.

Scribed line 3/4" from front of mounting bracket. First grind off two rivets to the right of the scribed line in picture (towards front of sled) then begin to cut line.

I had a question on the mounting holes... When you get ready to put the skid in do you have the skid relaxed on the floor and take your bolt-to-bolt measurement and use that to get your measurements on the sled tunnel? also how do you know where to place the TSL in the correct position?

No, that won't work. You need the bolt to bolt measurement from the holes on the doner sled or at least a sled similar to it.

I just transplanted a ZR skid in a Cougar and used the 23 3/4" measurement that Scooter mentioned. Did a bunch of math and layed it out inside the tunnel before drilling and it worked great. BTW the skid I used was from a 98 ZR600. Not saying it is the right measurement for you to use but it worked in the Cougar I have. If you have a ZR6 to measure I would use that first.

I would like some clarification on this. Is 97 the first year of the ETT and TSL. I know that in 2000 they changed the design of the rails to make them stronger. Would I get the same ride from a 97-99 compared to 2000-present other than they aren't as strong?!?! Is there the same amount of travel from one era to the other. Does anyone have any thoughts on which is ultimately better.

The actual travel didn't change between those model year skids. As far as what ones are better, I would say that the 2000+ year ones would be better due to the durability being better.
