    Lost all pressure in the clutch last week about 45 minutes from home - brought it to the dealership to find out the hydraulic line blew right out of the slave cylinder. Slave cylinder was pulled to find that the o-rings were shot and the small boot ripped. I asked that they replace the entire system (slave cylinder, hydraulic line, and clutch master) to ensure it all functions correctly. I am to pick up Double Deuce this afternoon - there's just something weird about driving a front wheel drive Cherokee as a loaner...

    Power bled the system at my buddy's shop and the clutch seems to be ok - I still occasionally feel temporary pressure in the clutch but not as often as before; going to pull the slave in the upcoming weeks to inspect for rips/failed seals.

    We are currently in the high 50's so it was time to get the pressure washer out and give Double Deuce a much needed bath.

    Just read through your entire thread, really nice job on your JKU. I just picked up an '08 Sahara in the Red Rock/Khaki hard top combo. I am going to use your build as kind of a blueprint for mine. Don't know if I'll go with 37's like you did, but am going with 35's for sure.

    Keep up the good work and keep updating your thread. Oh, and GO PACK,GO!

    Clutch has been working great so that's a relief. Installed an Ultimate44 along with new front upper/lower MC control arms.

    A small group of us from the Green Bay area are heading down to Tennessee on Friday to wheel Windrock - will post photos later on!

    Returned from an amazing trip to Windrock Park in Tennessee last week. Took about 12 hours to drive down there with all the stops, wheeled 3 days straight, spent a night in Nashville, and then headed back to Green Bay.

    The first trail day was spent doing mostly green trails to take in the stunning views this park has to offer. The second day was used to do a few green trails into the blue trails, hitting a few black diamonds. On the final day, we all put in 14 hours doing blue and black trails. I definitely pushed Double Deuce harder than ever before, threading the needle through trees, over rocks, through mud holes; extremely impressed.

    All of us suffered some type of damage whether it be alternators, body damage, lug nuts missing, soft top door surrounds, over heating issues, you name it. But nobody suffered more than Juan, AKA El Rubicon. As he was about to go into one of the hairpin turns down the mountain, his tie rod end shear off, sending him into the guard rail, which was JUST installed 2 months prior. We were able to trailer it home and insurance will be paying for some of the repairs.

    Overall, what an incredible trip and so many great memories - if you haven't been to Windrock, I high suggest you check it out!

    Here are a few photos from the past week:

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.
