    The material for the new foot plate came in today. I'll have to wait until I go to work to get started turning it in the lathe. I ordered a piece of 6061 aluminum, 8 1/4 diameter by 3 1/4 length. It should be stronger than the old cast plate.

    Thanks, I'm glad I had those classes too. It definitely came in handy for the transfer case flange, I can use the adapter plate and transfer punch the hole for that flange.

    While I'm waiting for the next day to go to work, I started getting the spare tire mocked up to build the spare tire carrier. There should be enough space to go up to 40's once these tires are worn out.

    It's looking good. Closer and closer to being drivable. Note how I didn't say finished...haha.

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.
