    Hopefully I'll be able to sell my other project which is a 07 4runner v8 to fund most of this.

    I really love my WJ. I to have the 4.7 with 545rfe and quadratec. Mated with some duratracs, it has been the ultimate winter vehicle. That being said, the winters have eaten her up. I am going to have to cut both rockers out and replace with something custom. Also every bushing in every control arms are shot and shocks are bad, so I will be needing to either to replace or by a lift kit. Lol other then that, great jeep.

    I think it might be worth to through a 3" short arm on just for the little extra clearance expecially if the jeep will see mild trails that you maybe don't wanna take the big ol' jk out on and just wanna cruiser in a/c and comfort . For The rocker you cab always cut them off then weld on some 2x4 rectangular steel tube as a slider then weld out rigers that bolt to the frame for extra support.

    First things first. Gotta start fixing the neglect from the previous owners yes ownerS there were 7 but I'm gonna hold on for a long time.
    The drivers door panel was suffering from the infamous short door wire problem which ment that the main negative wire that runs out of the door was a couple cm too short and had actually broken inside the rubber boot because of stress of normal door operation. This meant that the driver door controls didn't work when the door was open and sometimes worked when it was closed. So I went it and spliced a 2" piece in between the two broken pieces so that it wouldn't have any more stress and after a few minutes it was working perfectly again. Next is passenger side auto locking is broken sounds like a stripped gear. And then new driver seat motor. Possibly ill fix the heated seat as well for those chilly Colorado mornings.

    Ok. Gotcha. Thought you were dealing with two separate problems.

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.
