    here we have installed the jcr stuff, the fit and finish is awesome compared to the Chinese stuff readily available on eBay or for that matter everywhere.

    oh yeah, the jeep has been painted in these pics as well.

    jeep cherokee xj build

    the install of the smittybilt bumper/carrier, I just love the way an xj look with the tire on the back instead of the roof, i wanted a jcr bumper but I thought i would try the smittybilt china version. i was being led by price alone.

    the bumper and tire carrier ended up taking a full day to install, they fit like shit and have twist in them probably from the welding sequence used in the manufacturing process, if you feel like bolting unbolting prying, bolting and unbolting some more, prying some more to get all of the seams to look correct where the bumper meets the body, this is the bumper for you, but then again like i said in the first post i am extremely picky it has to fit right and look right as well as perform or it ends up in the scrap heap. make sure you have a friend helping you with this install!

    anyway after some grinding and hole elongation the bumper fits well and it looks great.

    ok, here she is with the tires and wheels mounted, lift kit on, bumpers on, all the stuff, check out the little wheel wells, not for long, the jeep is starting to get my attention, i'm liking it more and more, i'm starting to get the itch to drive it, but wait more work to do, does it ever end...

    the roof rack needs to go on, the fenders need 40 more hours, the tail lights on and on and on.

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.
