    Honestly, I've been meaning to do this since we moved here. It's just big and heavy and I'd need to get it hang it from the ceiling. I'll have to rent scaffolding and have you come visit sometime so that you can help me install it

    It really is the best way to go in my opinion.
    Well, at least your favorite local shop treated you right again. Glad you found the problem.

    Sorry to hear that you got shafted on the Adams shafts.

    Any call out on the SoCal shop you mentioned, since a bunch of us are still stuck down here and not looking forward to getting shafted by the wrong place.

    The shop I used to use all the time closed up in the great recession.

    Unfortunately, where you live seems to make a big difference in how much you'll pay. Bigger the city, the more you'll get the shaft. This is a big part of why I was okay with how much my Adam's cost being that they're in Vegas. In SoCal, it'll be up there as well but that said, I've always had good results with JE Reel. Jim is a good guy and has been doing this a long time. My personal favorite shop down there is PowerTrain down in Garden Grove. They do have other shops and you need to know that because they don't all do the same quality of work or for the same price. I have found the one in Garden Grove to have fair pricing, do excellent balancing and have a relatively fast turnaround. They have helped me out in terms on more than one occasion or at least in terms of time being that I was just traveling through. The guy I work with a lot there is Manny.

    I've said it before but I'm fortunate enough to have a local shop myself. Once I decide on what I'm going to do with my front end I'm going to have him build me a 1350 front. He rebuilt my blown up rear 1310 and I had him rebuild my front as it was chirping. He charges $25 per shaft plus the cost of parts and had them done in less than a week.

    You're gonna need to pass that info along. There aren't any shops close to me. 🙄

    Here, you can see that balancing only cost me $94.50.

    Oh, and did I mention that I brought it in at 11 am on a busy Friday morning and got a call at 1 pm saying that I could come by to pick up?!

    I know people love their name brand shit but local is the only way to go.

    Man that does suck. Good to know, I always thought they were a decent shaft.

    It’s like I always tell the people in here in Utah that are always sucking the Tom Woods dick. There are three local shops that really good in salt lake that do better work for about half the cost.

    I need to get that info from you! I was using a local guy that did great work, but unfortunately he passed away about a month ago. My son needs some work done on his front driveshaft.

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.
