    I didnít have any issues with that. Dynatrac made the instructions Jarhead proof with pictures!

    Here are some update pictures of the pre-filter material. This is simply from driving back and forth to work and general street driving. This is five days worth of driving and it has been a bit windy a couple of those days.

    When I get it out on a dusty road/trail Iíll post any updates. Again, for $10 Iím pretty happy with the results so far.

    PS - The dealership called today and said the dash parts still havenít arrived. Itís been over a month so they found a dealer in Cali that has them in stock and ordered those. Hopefully by this time next week that will be remedied.

    My oldest daughter drove Spider yesterday and came home complaining about ďloose steeringĒ. It blew my mind because since the ProSteer install last week I thought it felt great.

    So I crawled underneath and looked for my paint pen marks on all the steering and suspension bolts. They were all mostly gone! I guess that cheap Walmart paint pen I used wasnít so weather resistant. Not to mention I havenít been very good at checking that stuff lately. My fault...

    So I checked everything. The front track bar, all four front control arms and both front shocks were nearly an entire turn loose. The front bolts on all four rear control arm were about the same but everything else checked out in the rear. I used my fancy new paint pen from Napa to mark everything and intend on keeping a better eye on that stuff from now on. It drives smooth and mostly straight now. I didnít get a chance to check my tow in, but...

    The bad news...my tie rod is definitely, although not terribly, bent for the third time. I pressed it flat twice already, so I guess itís time for a new one soon.

    Better news...I get to tinker with my buddyís TJ tomorrow. Itís the one pictured a few posts up.

    Updates;

    Finally! Gear swap scheduled for March 3rd! Canít wait!!!

    Also...

    I was scheduled to go to my body shop of choice yesterday for the dealer dash repairs. I showed up on time and the shop said the dealer sent the part over but is refusing to pay labor. Body shop quoted just over $300 in labor so I opted to take the dash and go home. The plan is to do it myself if the dealership GM doesnít get his shit together. They only sent over the drivers side upper dash even though the pass side was ordered too.

    Now if the wind and cold temps would break, I could make some progress on the sliders...

    I guess it's the "Super Stocker" build

    Today was busy! My daughter recently bought a 2000 Camry XLE 3.0 auto as her first car. (Yes, I made her buy it!) It has 116,000 original miles on it and she got it for $1000. Engine and trans are solid but most other components seem to be original. So I dove into the front end. I was having trouble getting the passenger side axle assembly out, even with a slide hammer. So, I dropped the hook off of my winch line and bolted the line to the axle. A couple of bumps and it was out!

    I also finished painting my new front diff cover in preparation for the gear swap in a couple weeks. My rear PS is all black powder coat but I got this one raw to try to be one of the cool guys.

    I picked up a set of Rancho 9000ís from rmilobrown for a good deal. Thanks Rob!. Iíve been wondering about my 3 year old Rancho 5000ís with just over 44,000 miles on them. They werenít leaking but Iím not sure how long they usually last. Anyway, as I removed them they had no rebound left in them. The fronts are installed and Iíll be ordering a set of rears in the near future.

    Ha! Looks good! I found the third setting (3) on the fronts good for both street and trail.

    Good to know, thanks! I plan on playing with it.

    My imagination might be messing with me but it looks like I gained some height back. A friend of mine recently said it looked like my front end was sagging. I honestly didnít notice it until after the install. I shouldíve measured. Thanks again! I wanted to go this route 3 years ago but couldnít swing it at the time.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
