    I think you dropped your pinion... Looks good. This is a great build to follow. Its coming along nicely.

    Yeah, everything fits well enough to move on to repositioning my lower control arms and building shock hoops. Once the notches are integrated into the role cage I'll go back and fine tune everything.

    I cut off two tube adapters from my lower control arms and put them iin the lathe at work and turned off the weld and milled the flats back in them.20180112_222823.jpg I wasn't happy with the shock mounts I bought. So I'm machining them to work better. 20180112_231402.jpg I started to make upper mounts as well. Another great setup20180112_222831.jpg

    Figured out where to mount the lower control arms so they're put of the way of the tires. They're tacked in place.20180118_214833.jpg started on tacking on the lower coilover mounts20180118_223911.jpg still need to finish fabbing the upper mounts and build the shock hoops.

    Looking good. Has to feel like some real progress now that you can see things coming together.

    I bit the bullet and ordered upper shock mount brackets, high steer arms and a set of heim joints. The arms and shock brackets were taking too long to make so I cut my loses and ordered them. While I'm waiting on them to arrive, I did some tube work on the roof.20180121_200814.jpg20180121_200858.jpg20180121_204725.jpg20180121_211019.jpg all ready to be welded in.

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.
