    Delrin Door Hinge Liners:

    If you have access to an engine lathe, then door liners should be at the top of your DIY list.

    Start with some 3/4” Dia. Delrin Rod. Turn the OD to .522” +/-.001” x 1 7/16” back. Drill 11.5mm or 29/64” x 1 1/2” deep. Break all sharp corners with a file and cut-off using a parting tool to 1 1/2” overall length (1/16” flange thickness). Chamfer the bore on the cut-off end and install.

    This mod cost me zero dollars since I already had the material and took about 4hrs to do all 4 doors including the removal of the old liners:

    Bumping one of my favorite threads...

    Backup Camera - Adding one no longer requires a trip to the dealership to activate the backup camera function within the ECU. This can be done on the cheap with the new OBD JScan app for iOS or Android, a WiFi or Bluetooth OBDII Adapter and a smart phone. Hardware consists of the camera of your choice, harness for the 430 series head unit, RCA Coupler, assorted electrical connectors, tape and wire ties. This can easily be done for less then $100 and takes about 4hrs if you’re handy:

    Will it work with the 730N?

    I believe so. The JScan app “activates” the ECU for the backup camera option, no matter the head unit. If I remember right the 730N is the same as the 430N with the exception of traffic updates. The back of the head unit should be the same and it should have an empty receptacle for the wire harness. I would double check it or do a little more research just to make sure that you order the right harness.

    Wow missed this thread when I built my rear tire carrier and bumper a year or two ago. It was cool seeing what members have pulled off through the years. Some great projects. Seeings how its still making rounds, this was a fun build for me.20190315_074248.jpeg20190315_074412.jpeg20190315_074435.jpg20190315_074459.jpeg20190315_074602.jpeg20190315_074637.jpeg

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
