    Awesome. My dad bought it within a month of when I was born. So he gave it to me. It has a lot of issues. I have to build a transmission. Buy a new engine. I'm changing the gearing to 4:10. Putting a 258 with a built up t-176. 4" lift with 33's and 1.5" wheel spacers. Air conditioning and fuel injection. I'm tearing apart the transfer case now to rebuild. Gotta buy the fiancé a vehicle before I can unload a lot of money on it and getting a lot of specialty tools and get a building. Definitely wanna put a lot of time and money into this thing

    Thanks. I definitely will keep the updates coming. It will be slow at the start but once it starts it will definitely be moving quick. I'm already excited to be driving it.

    It will be worth it.

    That's cool that it's as old as you are.

    Here's my CJ7.

    That looks great. It's nice to see when people bring back older jeeps. They were the best in my opinion

    Good luck to you, it will be awesome. My favorite jeep was a Levi addition CJ my dads friend had in Alaska. White with blue stripes. It had a v-8 and side pipes with denim looking seats. Sorry I had a flash back.

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.
