    Trying the bare frame look in the rear. I'd still have some cleaning painting to do, but maybe with the EVO rear...

    JKUR coils and shocks!

    Coils (17/59) and shocks were off a 2015 JKUR, new swaybar links too; $50 off craigslist. Lost about 1/2 inch going from the 2" BB, but now my geometry matches up a little better. It rides and steers like brand new too! Still 1 1/2" taller than stock

    Leveling

    Chopped my 2" budget boost with a hand saw and put it back in the front to level it out. I was in a hurry so I didn't get many pictures, but I got this one right after I put them back in. Also put in some used rear sway bar links ($10 on CL) in the front; the sway bar is finally level!

    You can see where I cut slots in the floor for the belts. Bonus: My DIY Hi-Lift jack mount!

    Inside the under-floor storage where I bolted the belt onto the body.

    Those look like the vinyl seats in the '09 I had. Loved vinyl, because you're apt to get caught in the rain with the top down, where I live. Nice Jeep! It's good to see another 2-door build.

    Thanks! I love being able to just wipe down the seats. Both my TJ and YJ had cloth seats, smelled like wet dog for days if I was caught in the rain.

    More Leveling and Extensions

    Put in the front shock extensions and cut short coil spacers for the rear. Still waiting on the rear extensions and bump stops...

    EVO 1/4 Pounder Time!

    Just put this on this weekend. Still waiting to get a winch and put the lights back on (probably a fairlead mount). Looking at a Warn M8000 on craigslist right now...

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.
