    Not really but it's much easier on a TJ. Here's an old write-up I did for one way back in the day. I apologize for it not being as thorough.

    Great job Eddie. I still prefer pulling the front header panel and leaning the Radiator/AC Condenssor to the front because it give you more room to work and a better angle when getting to bolts but I love all the write-ups and have already emailed this to 2 different XJ guys who were just asking how to do this.

    Keep up the Great work.

    There is a port and so The Rabid is gonna get a shroud w/electric fan, probably Flex-a-Lite. Thx.

    I just did this on my XJ, but I got a new water outlet as well. The only things I took off were the serpentine belt and mechanical fan. I am a minimalist though

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.
