    Turned out great! Having the heat out there everything a lot easier.

    Thank you! Iím very happy how itís coming together. The only thing left that I may look into is re-engineering the section of ceiling above the lift so that I can use the entirety of its height without worrying about hitting anything. As it is now, I can safely get the center tires on my Jeep to about shoulder level without coming close to touching the ceiling. I can work with that if I have to, but if I can buy myself another 18-24Ē that would be even better. If this last leg of the project is too complex to take on, then Iíll just deal with the insulation and call it a day.

    Post up a picture of what the trusses or framing looks like above in the attic. I might be able to steer you in a simple direction depending on how they framed it.

    I’ll be curious to hear your thoughts....I have some ideas but I also may be overthinking it. Of course when safety is involved, that’s not a bad thing. But if there’s a simpler solution than what I imagine I’d do, I’m all for it. I’m most curious about the weight the trusses bear and if the trusses bear more weight from the drywall below or the roof overhead. I did notice the ceiling “joists” as a part of the trusses are all 2x4s. And we’re talking about a section about 8’ wide by 10-12’ long.

    Most of you load is actually the roof load, or snow load on top your roof. Typically, when we modify roof trusses, my engineer has me plywood one side of the truss(s) that is going to be cut. Usually 1/2 ply screwed at 6Ē centers.

    If your going to do it, once you cut the hole where you plan open up the ceiling, you bring the plywood up through the hole, screw it to the trusses, then cut the bottom web out.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
