    Well... the project is done.

    still ended up being into the project for about 3000 in the end.

    Price as set up and delivered was 4000...
    sold the dana 30 on ebay for 1350 (plus they paid shipping so it was like 1689)
    The clayton track bar I had was hiting the larger housing... so I had to find a good one to clear it, and went with metalcloak. that broght it back up closer to 3000 for whole project.

    Labor was free... since I did the work alone. Took me three hours to drop it and remove the old... about 8 to put it in, but I cleaned and painted all the aprts, put in all new boots on trac bar etc... new u-joints in drivesahft... all of it looks great now... until the first mud trip...

    A couple of "hicups"... I re-enforced my track bar mount years ago and it is about 1/2 inch wider than stock... this hit the corner of the drivers side spring pad mount... a little grinding on both peices and it is all good. My rock krawler arms were too tight for the bolts through the lower control arms.. had to drill them out...because the stock bolts are too short. everything bolted up square. The track bar hit the top of the cover... three things that had to be fixed to move freely throughout all of the axle movement without noise!

    I got the track bar set, and the toe in set... and it steers as well as stock... no bump steer, no death wobble, etc.... been driving on it for over a month... no problems at this point. Still have not wired up the locker... was trying to use stock relay... and switch, still might... but my garage has my sons broken truck in it, and it's been ice and snowing outside... so I have not finished that last task yet! Had to get a tranny rebuilt... so the project stalled. The jeep is a daily driver and has 1200 miles on the axle now... no problems. phone pics 2015 167.jpg Again my apologies that this information was in the wrong spot... or not what everyone wanted to see. It seems to be well built. P.S.... that screw in the top was added because of the clayton bar hitting the bolthead as well... the regular bolt is back in and clears fine!

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.
