    Yeah,sorry, I posted all of the photos consecutively so there was a bunch in a row for background before I started the actual reconstruction. Someone pulled out in front of me from a side road and I t-boned them. Caused the frame to 'diamond'.

    Thank you! I have one last batch to post before everything is current and I start my actual portion of the rebuilding, but the new frame turned out great. They sent it to the paint shop and it looks better than when I bought the thing new. Gonna feel bad sanding it down to weld on the sliders!

    Thanks! There's a photo in there that shows the other drivers car and how well the smittybilt bumper actually held up. I know they get a bad rap but honestly I was impressed. Having said that I am switching to a different brand because I wanted a different style this time.

    I really like them. I know they aren't really necessary but for what those axles cost I figured I'd go all in & put the damn things on. I got a really great deal from Northridge for the package of the front & rear axles so that helped with the decision.

    How much did your rear cost if you don't mind me asking

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.
