    Looks way better. How did you end up fixing it? The slider still looks straight.

    I agree. The front and middle frame mounting flanges and some of the standoffs were cut off using a bandsaw. About 1 1/2” at the front and 5/8” at the middle. Made two new flanges and welded them on at a slight angle.

    40k maintenance:

    Oil change, front & rear differentials and tire rotation. I found a chunk of a screw in one of the tread blocks:

    Afterward I cruised 4.5 miles to Lake Michigan where the temperature was 73 (17 degrees cooler than my house). Hard to believe that the difference could be that much in less than 5 miles:

    Been awhile since the last update. Oscar got a good cleaning including the dreaded tire shine:

    Our first few inches of accumulation is forecasted for tomorrow. Time to officially say goodbye to summer and drop the hard top on.

    Winter is definitely my favorite season, but I am excited to get my soft top back on in the spring! It’s been too long since I’ve had it on...

    Been awhile since Oscar got any love. That changed this week as I picked up a new OBD II WiFi Adapter for $26 on Amazon:

    IMG_8411.JPG

    To go with it I downloaded and purchased a $15 license for OBD JScan from the App Store:

    IMG_8444.JPG

    Together I now have the power to write or flash the ECU to make changes like:
    Tire Size
    Gear Ratio
    TPMS Thresholds
    Enable Backup Camera
    Enable Day Time Running Lights
    Plus many more options

    App also reads trouble codes and clears them, displays live data and testing of individual circuits. Tons of information and capability for very little money.

    The app does overlap some capabilities that you might already have if you have the EVIC option, but goes much further.

    To date, I have made the following changes:

    TPMS - Changed the Target of 35psi and Indicator Light at 28psi to a new Target of 30psi and Indicator Light to 24psi. Finally I can get through a winter without having the TPMS Light on the entire time.

    DRL’s - Changed from none to Turn Signals and Tail Lights

    Backup Camera - Enabled and purchased the following Camera and required harness from Amazon for $36. Install to follow.

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.
