    WJCO's Build Thread, 1999 WJ

    Ok. So I'll start a build thread. This will start out as an 'already built' thread as most of the work is done already. Rather than caption each photo, I'll add a bunch of text here to begin with. Did a Zone 4" short arm lift, BFG MTs 255/75R17, roof rack, rough country winch mount, with Warn Zeon 8s, customized a generic grill guard to go around the winch mount, added Warn lights, DIY tire carrier with high lift mount, OME steering stabilizer in a beginner's attempt to fix DW (which I just now found was a seized axle side track bar bolt that never torqued down right, see the shiny bolt in the picture), Off road armor sliders (Built here in CO), DIY air intake (I did not want to run an open filter on the Jeep, but had to modify air system due to relocating washer bottle) The WJ washer bottles are in front of the LF tire, stupid design. Herculiner interior, isimple MP3 aux input with USB charging port, Full LED interior, new rear tail lights with 1500 lumen(claimed) reverse lights, buttload of tools in my spare tire well now that tire is outside vehicle, Custom Jeep logo'd 3rd brake light decal, And of course the WAYALIFE fender decals. I think that's all for now.

    Thanks. It was peppy until I put on the 32s. Still not bad. Gonna gear up to 4.56 this December hopefully.

    Great looking build so far - I saw that you installed the Bilsteins; you won't be disappointed with those. I ran the ProComp ES9000's when I had the WJ but were pretty stiff.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm anxious to get them out on the trail and try them out.

    eyourlife Light bar

    Working on the light bar. It's loosely up there as I'm building the mounts. But this is a rough idea of what it will look like. Cheapa$$ light bar, it is what it is. Still for 60 bucks, it ain't bad. I -already took it apart and ran silicon over all seams. I'm getting the wiring harness from Rigid sometime next week. Sorry about the crappy night photos, and Jeep is really dirty too.

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.
