    My Jeep Build

    Ive decided I should start a Jeep build on here as I'm typically doing things here and there and am about to under go some major upgrades. I have a 2012 Jk sport with 6sp manual, about 47k miles on her now and over the past 2 years ive gone through a bunch of modifications. I do all the work myself, except the impending re-rear. ive included some pics of where it all started and where it is today. Wish i joined this forum earlier as i could have probably saved some money along the way!! here is a list of my upgrades and some pics

    F&R Adams Drive Shaft
    285/75/16 BFG Ko2
    Synergy Draglink Flip
    F&R JKS adjustable Trackbar
    JKS Quick Discos
    Extended rear sway bar links
    3in Teraflex short arm kit- all 8 arms
    4" EVO Plus Ride coils- may switch to 3in in the Front as they yielded 5.5" of lift
    EVO protek Skid system
    Rock Hard 4x4 Rear Bumper
    Gobi Stealth Roof Rack
    Smittybilt Xmod front bumper
    Warn M8000 winch
    Truck-Lite LED headlights
    Spod
    Banks Stinger System
    ARB single Air compressor
    Polk Speakers/Alpine AMP-No subwoofer

    In the coming weeks my fully loaded Pro Rock 44 will be here, 35s should be here any day, and then will regear and add ARB locker to rear.

    35's actually showed up yesterday, decided to throw them on, pretty sluggish with the 3.73 gears but that will change next week! 35x12.50r17 Nitto Trail Grapplers installed on Procomp 01 17x9 wheels. really like the tires and how they ride.

    Just got my Jeep back from the Shop, had rear 4.88 gears installed and a rear ARB locker. In the next week or so my Pro Rock 44 will be here so I can bolt it in as well as my front drive shaft. Shop installing was nice enough to let me install all the plumbing and wiring so if im lucky I can get to that this weekend. I like the look of the new ARB Diff cover as well.

    Looks really good. Just an FYI if you already didn't know, do your research on proper fluid level (especially if you're doing the 500 mile oil change yourself). I've heard several stories that the fill plug is not even close to accurate as to where the full level should be when you put oil in 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.
