    I used to think it was about what you drove through life, now I know it's more about what you drive over in life with a Jeep!

    Took the front bumper plastic molding off and put metal back on only. I painted it semi gloss enamel black and affixed my license plate with two small drilled holes.

    It was free and I love the looks of it! I plan to weld tabs to add 2x4" LED flood lights where the stock fog lamps were. I'm also going to cut each side of the metal bumper in counter with the grille to make it narrower.


    I can't even tell you how much I hated the stock plastic bumper. Darn thing is going on CL!

    1.5" Wheel Spacers

    Other side! (I had to touch up the plastidip from the install...just retouched over old for now)
    20150430_082328[1].jpg

    Also thought I would mention. I have the 3.6L and (eek!) 3.21 gears. I really am not all that heavy on the small pedal and for me, the differnece in power/torque etc. has been less than trivial. I also admit, the "new to me" tires I put on are worn 35's so i am not getting the true 35" perspective.
    But...
    I am happy!

    Thanks Pyro. I had read that Blue RTV was a good option for the spacers. In reality, in looking at the directions and talking with the vendor of the spaces, Loctite wasn't even recommended. I just did it out of precaution and made sure I torqued in a star pattern to 95ft.lbs.

    Hmm my spydertrax explicitly said red locktite lol. I guess as long as you check them on rotations it should be great.

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.
