    Awesome, both the lift and the write up.

    Can you report the change in mpg? Just curious.

    I could have sworn that I clicked on the wrong link when I saw removal of windshield wipers for a lift install!

    Nice write-up and Reny looks great

    Looks awesome! I am always in awe when it comes to the time and attention to detail put into your write ups. You and Cindy definitely put pride in your work, I admire that.

    Will do. Haven't had a chance to do extensive testing as of yet but hope to soon.

    "Another thing I need to note is that after having a 4 wheel alignment done, I found that the rear toe was still off by about 1°. Short of installing new adjustable arms, this is about as good as it's going to get and while it will require more frequent tire rotations to keep the tread wear even, it's really not that big of a deal."

    Which are adjustable arms?

    The rear arms have cam bolts and you would need to adjust them.

    The best result that I have with wheel alignment is 0.75°. Is it normal

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.
