    I had a productive day.

    First, got the reamer going and reamed out the knuckles for the Exodus tie rod.

    Then mounted the five new STT Pros on my Trail Ready beadlocks.

    I used some fender washers with the old bolts to hold the bead from jumping out while getting the rest of it into position.

    The 1/4" Milwaukee impact is great for getting the beadlock bolts down to where they are ready for the torque wrench. That is a real time saver😁

    I still can't believe how much weight was used on the Goodyear MTRs! One wheel had five strips of the stick on weights, each strip about 8 to 10 inches long. I didn't count, and forgot to get a picture until it was too late.

    While doing all this, I touched up the paint on the sliders, fender wells, and front bumper.

    Got all the tires on and did the alignment. I rolled each tire while it was jacked up and chalked an area all the way around, the used a Sharpie to make a fine line in the chalked area.
    This way I am sure where I am measuring to each time.

    I have two yard sticks and some spring clamps that work pretty well for doing it by yourself, but found that with two people it was easier to use a regular tape measure

    Got interrupted by a shooting a half a block from the house 🤯🤯

    Once that drama was done, we test drove the Jeep. Sweet. No balance and no vibration until somewhere between 85 and 90, a very slight balance vibration. Nothing at all to worry about.


    Death wobble that had developed due to the bad tie rod end on the Steer Smart was cured by the new tie rod and checking all relevant bolts. Next time a tie rod end wears out, it will be a simple fix.

    I did notice that the sector shaft seems to deflect slightly while turning back and forth. It was very slight, but there. The new one is just in time.

    Next project will be to install the XDIII big bore box I got from PATRIOTKJM

    I wanted to get this wrapped up and tested before tackling the steering box, so I could isolated any problems.

    Damn, you guys were busy... I added a quart of oil and refilled the windshield washer fluid that I went through because of all the fucking butterflies this week. 😳

Dropped off the new Nemesis Notorious fenders for paint match. A shout out to Zan and ORE for making a little mistake right again. When I arrived home for R&R was going to stop by ORE and pick up my new wheels on the way home. Mistakenly my wheels had been mounted on another customers tires. Zan had my wheels delivered to my door the very next day (Saturday) before 2pm. Thanks again Zan and Off Road Evolution.Attachment 322989Attachment 322990Attachment 322991
    Looking good 👍

    Looks like you will not be doing any trails until the new fenders get on there.

    Surprised I haven't seen you around town since you are so close. I'm in Hemet, SW side

    Yea I took it out in Havasu while I was home in Feb. had to be careful on my approaches and angles. Learned real quick that those tires will pop the rear fender off easily. I live over near Hewitt and 7th in San Jacinto. My kids are over off Sanderson and Fruitvale. I'm working in Afghanistan so I'm not home a lot. Defiantly have to get together so you can show me a thing or two. Still a novice but trying to build it like I'm going to use it one day.

    Be glad to show you what I know. I'm no expert, but have been around a bit.

    Let me know when you are available, we can hit some trails.
    Also, keep an eye on the SoCal group page

    Hey, if you don't have enough to do....


    All the runs I've been on have taken a toll. Now I have a transmission cross member to change, a steering box to install, a radiator, and I'm sure a few more I have forgotten, and that's just on my JK, plus I have a lift for the little woman's JL to get on, and tires.

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.
