    You may want to flip the bolt on the axle end of the ram mount. Also look for the low profile ny-lock nut for it at Fastenal.

    Correct - the DL mount is in the stock location. I had 2 issues going on - the raised tie rod location along with the increased diameter was now causing the clearance issue with the ram mount on it hitting the diff cover. The larger dia of the drag link caused it to contact the frame.

    Yeah, those are pretty big nuts. Good idea on the flip too.

    That’s a cool idea with the wireless camera, hopefully it holds up well.

    Yeah, local shop. Total for both was under $300 - $279 or something like that. and that included balancing. I had these guys totally redo the front last year including the Cardan pieces. The famous guys like Adams, Reel, Woods, all
    make good driveshafts sure, but this shit ain't rocket science. Any local shop worth a damn should be able to make shafts just as good as any other. These guys also cut the yoke off of the front shaft and re-welded it back on because he wasn't happy with the run-out on it.

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.
