I am starting this thread cause I saw it on another forum (JKF). I realize not everyone on WayaLife has a Jeep but I thought it would be cool to see what the WayaLife community is doing to their rigs. Post up, stories or pictures of what you've done to your rig recently.

I just finished putting on some EVO rock skins on my rig, "Creeper."

well this week I fired my spotter and replaced him with a camera until he gets some experience. It was $20 bucks off amazon, I dont plan on it lasting long it will probably break on a rock or get water logged but thought I would just play around with the idea see how i like it....not too sure where to put it tho what do you guys think? I'm thinking by the transmission mount so I can see the 2 front wheels.

A really cool concept. I actually just saw a rig today that had a slightly downward facing camera so you can keep an eye on the line when you're front end is in the air. I like it

we´ve done a lot to our rigs this week.:rock::rock::rock::rock::rock::rock:

first, my wife and i wrapped my JK, and turned it from matt black into matt white.
after this was done, we decided to plastidip all chrome stuff on my wife's liberty.

then, we put 35´s tire on the JK and lifted the liberty 2".

After all this was done, we needed some drinks and at last we put some new decals
on the rigs.

and now some pics:

Nice rig. What fenders and sliders are those?

The Fenders are the Rugged Ridge Flat Style All Terrain I do believe is what they call them. I like them a lot so far, they look good and are easy to install and gave me 4.5" more of tire clearance up front.

The sliders are homemade, me and my brother built them ourselves. We liked how they turned out. They work amazingly too, used them a few times, they have taken the full weight of the jeep and worked perfectly.

That's a great concept, I know a guy here was trying to get funding to do the same thing, but I don't think he ever got it off the ground. I wish more people made a business of this, it would help the weekend warriors. Hell, shops could just add a bay or two with a lift and offer it. Working on the Jeep on a lift would save my back, neck, and knuckles. ;)

Looks great! I am interested in this. Got a new CB for my B-day from the Mrs and need to get it mounted up. I like the tuffy overhead but I'm not too hot on it going completely across to the speaker bar.

Does it vibrate or anything?

I get some vibration at highway speeds but nothing noticeable. Between the wind from being topless, and the trail doors clanking, the seatbelts flapping and the radio blaring. :)

But in all seriousness the clamps I put on the footman loop are insulated so there's no sound and I put a strip of weatherstripping on the back of the CB where it contacts the plastic upper of the windshield. Pretty solid and budget-wise setup.

Thanks for the pics and write up.
I've been looking at these for the same reason everybody does, the doors have a mind of there own. You want it to stay open, it closes, you want it to close, it flies open.
The reason there isn't a system like this from the factory is because they know some of us pull our doors off regularly.
So, here's my question(s).
How easy is it to disconnect this and pull the doors? Can you undo just the one little silver bolt (arrow), or do you have to unscrew the 2 nuts (circled) on each hinge assembly?

Once again, thanks for the great write up.

I'm thinking if you just removed the Allen head the arm could go back inside the door and might be a PITA to get out.

Yes it holds two cans but I only have one (for now) looking for a water can to be its mate. Thanks I love it so far. It's was $525 from a local shop.

That's a great set up. I have the same tire / can system but with the rotopax. You will enjoy it

I can testify to this being a PITA. Me and a friend installed mine and it took all day and turns out we drilled through the evap cannister that finally made me fail smog 6 years ago. Perfectly drilled hole through the cannister! Got it fixed.

I had 14's and 55's. Mako159 sold me his 16 and 57 coils off his 4dr for almost nothing. (big thanks).

It gave me an inch of lift front and back (I am already running a 3/4 inch spacer/leveler in the front).

I also love how tucked in the spare tire is to the tailgate. It barely hangs over my bumper at all. A lot less likely to rip it off coming down off something.

Been chasing down a power steering leak that had recently gotten worse and found that it was coming from a bad o-ring on our PSC pump...

5504

After reinstalling everything and giving it a test drive, I found this under Moby...

5505

Clearly, still had a leak although, it was definitely not coming from the pump anymore. After looking and looking, cleaning things up and running the engine and looking some more, I finally found this...

5506

The leak was coming from under this tiny blister and oozing out through the hose lining. Fortunately, it was close enough to one of the couplers and because the hose was long enough, I was able to cut it at the damaged spot and hook everything back up. So far so good and I hope it stays that way.

As big as you dare! haha, with the stock shafts, 33-35 and carry a spare. The guy that did the weld job is running this setup with sleeves too, RCVs and 37'' nittos. I wouldn't go bigger than 37. Personally, I'm running 35 until I can get a PR44 and that is a LONG WAYS away. . . . . . . .

Picked up a second hand Rubicon e-swaybar that has dead electronics for great price. Installed two days ago. Gonna get the EVO nolimits manual rubi swaybar disconnect (http://www.offroadevolution.com/store/proddetail.php?prod=EVO-NOLIMITS) and say bye-bye to annoying manual disconnect links :thumb:

Installed Dominion Offroad's NEW PRODUCT on my rig today. They are a Jack Mounted accessory kit from JeepSwag. Thanks again to Brett for letting me get my hands on these first. They work great and allow me to carry more gear, which is invaluable to me since I have a 2door. Here are some pics.

Yep, very easy. Sway bar is held on by four bolts to frame of jeep. Disconnect end links, the four bolts and sway bar will be free. It helps to have two jack stands to hold new bar in place while bolting up. Also, the rubi swaybar I picked up didn't come with the mounts attached so I had to slide them off my old one. Santa is bringing the EVO manual disconnect. I can't wait. I hated dealing with the quick disconnects. Hoping this is going to be a much better set up.

I am starting this thread cause I saw it on another forum (JKF). I realize not everyone on WayaLife has a Jeep but I thought it would be cool to see what the WayaLife community is doing to their rigs. Post up, stories or pictures of what you've done to your rig recently.

I just finished putting on some EVO rock skins on my rig, The Downeaster Alexa.

I like it better I think with the Crush colored top back on it. It's kind of a toss up... :thinking:
