    CJ buggy build

    I bought a set of super duty axles and decided to put them I a 1977 CJ. It came with a 350.

    Here are the axles from a 2009 F350. I cut off the leaf spring mounts and painted the bare metal for now until I get a chance to truss the rear.

    That looks like a fun project. Are you gonna upgrade that 350 at all?

    Thanks man. I'd like to put a roller cam, headers and exhaust. Eventually convert over to EFI.

    I plan on putting 14" coilovers all around. And do some major cutting on the tub as soon as I get them.

    Just got my new diff cover today. Wasn't too sure when I heard it was aluminum but it's seems pretty beefy.

    Had a minor surgery performed so I won't be able to work on it for a few weeks but that just gives me more time to research and order parts.

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.
