    I see two broken points that look like they are ground straps. 1 just in front of the muffler on the transfer case, and another just in front of the muffler on the frame. I assume this is one ground strap but im not sure. If someone knows where it/they go please enlighten me

    RF bonding can help suppress RFI caused by the engine.

    Glad you found what you're looking for. Bad ground wires caused an intermittent start issue I had on an older vehicle. Auto parts store had battery-type cables with crimped lugs on each end in various lengths that I used as a ground strap. Jeep dealer should be able to hook you up with the right part#.

    You can get rolls of braided ground strap on Amazon as well, with some ring terminals you can make them any length you need and add a few extra.
