    Still waiting in some tubing to come in, so I've been going through all my short cuts and adding supports. Stiffened up the rear with a few. And final welded some that had already been cut and notched.

    Fuel cell supports are in. I'm really happy with how the fuel cell fits in the cage. Put the seats in to start working on the steering done.

    Made a mounting plate for my power steering reservoir and mounted it.

    Took out all the old wiring and fuse box. Going to make a very simple harness with relays and circuit breakers instead of fuses. Took out the old dash to make a new one. Made a mounting bracket for the u joint that holds the steering column.

    Closed up a few holes in the fire wall, still need to clean the patches up. Remebered how much I don't like welding sheet metal.
    Started working on a plate to mount the steering column and orbital valve on.

    Agreed. So tedious and defeating.

    Added some supports going from the shock hoops to the section of frame with the engine mounts. Should help stiffen everything up front when I cut out the unneeded part of the old frame. Started plumbing the transmission cooler lines. I wanted to make each line out of a single piece of tubing. Got a little too short on this line. Hopefully the next on I can make the way I want 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.
