    Your lower ball joint looks like the early gen too. What axles do you use? I think some of them hit don’t they?

    Factory axles. If it hits you can grind down the ears on the shaft a bit. I did on my D30 and never had issues.

    I wondered, if I ever broke an axle it will probably be from old age not hard use no more than I get time to drive it

    Time to clean up the sliders. Been a year or 2, and they were starting to get rusty.

    Took the angle grinder with a wire wheel to them to knock off the rust etc. 20180120_170318.jpg

    Then hand sanded down the pain so there would be a smooth transition... and coated with rust inhibitor. Has to sit for 24h, then give another light sanding.

    Plan on using rustolium, but bought a quart so I can roll it on. Last time I got A ton of overspray even after covering half the jeep in news paper. We will see how this technique works out.

    Looks like fun. Mine look like shit too. They are scratched, rusted and dented. May tackle my corners and rockskins in the next few weeks while I'm at it.

    Overspray sucks. I tape off like crazy. Use a cardboard shield and pull into the garage a bit to deflect any wind.

    I'll be using VHT roll bar and chassis paint.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Hope you went with the Spicer joints. If you did go with gold seals, keep an eye on them. It appears their quality has gone down over the years. YMMV, and I hope it does. It was my only disappointment with my TW for my TJ.

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.
