    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

    Water pump

    I would reccomend spending g a little more and getting a water pump from flowKooler as at low rpm it circulates 3x the amount of water which keeps engine cooler which is very helpful on the trails or out around town

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.
