    "Ol bloo" 98 jeep xj sport

    A little back story on this new rig I picked up.

    Earlier this year I picked up this rig for a great deal from a friend as it had been sitting for a few years. It needed some tlc to get her running again and some parts to make her offroad worthy again. I ended up doing a tune up, some exhaust work, battery, belt, and a few other things. Due to un forseen circumstances I had to abandon the project and sold it to a friend. Fast forward to a few months ago, I picked up another xj to build up and sell to make a few $$$. I ended up traded to my buddy for this one back and some cash. So now let this build begin again.

    As it sits today: 12-19-14
    -3.5" rough country lift with n2.0 shocks
    -cobra cb set up
    -bedlined interior
    -steelie black rims
    -24" light bar on front
    -31" firestone mts
    -cargo basket on top
    -few other things here and there


    The current plans this week are to replace the whole cooling system minus the radiator. Already replaced waterpump, have a new themostat 160 degrees, housing, and radator hoses.

    Over the next month or so I plan to paint a mismatched fender, cut front fenders, cut and fold rear, cut and fold rear quarter panel, bedline bottom half of it. Re-do the interior bedliner, put a small system in it to fill up the empty space the stock speakers dont put out, install a snorkel and winch bumper, dual battery set up, and hopefully some 33s

    Holy shit that's dirty. Looks to be in pretty good shape overall.

    Is that a sprayed on tint? Does it work well?

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.
