    Took off the old power steering pump brackets, cleaned and painted them. I was going to install the new pump, but I didn't have the right bolts on hand. The new pump is metric. I started working on mounting the radiator. I finished the lower mount and tacked it in. I figured out how I want to do the upper mount so it can bolt in and still keep the radiator snug.20180209_003015.jpg20180209_002958.jpg20180209_005516.jpg20180209_012345.jpg

    I went to start building my shock mounts and my axle isn't centered to the chassis. I did some measuring and found that my driver side frame rail was an inch further in and a 1/4 inch lower than the passenger side. BABOOZLE helped me get the rail to match the other. I had centered the upper axle control arm brackets to the truss and not the axle. I'll have to cut the old ones off and weld new ones on. I should have them thursday.20180214_001148.jpg20180214_001156.jpg

    I'm avoiding my control arm issue for now. One set of brackets is about 1/2" forward than the other. My new brackets will be here tomorrow. I'll move them when they come. Been working on the upper radiator mount. Need to finish trimming the tubing to fit.20180216_025812.jpg20180216_025912.jpg

    My wife got me a spare tire strap for my birthday and I'm pretty excited about it. A bunch of parts came in, so I should be able to stay busy for a while.20180216_102518.jpg20180217_105215.jpg

    Dude, you have a big project on your hands. Very cool. I like the rear mounted radiator. What are you doing for plumbing? I just found your thread and haven't had the time to review 22 pages, but it looks like you are running a Jaz fuel cell. What motor and fuel system do you have going into it?

    Thank you. I'm going to route the coolant lines down and underneath the floor boards on the passenger side. It has a carburated small block 350 in it. Going to rebuild it for sure. Thinking about swapping in an LS3 next year.

    Getting back to work on the buggy. A friend asked me to make a bumper and set of sliders for his '90 f250.20180302_002052.jpg20180302_002154.jpg getting parts off my shelf too.20180301_233219.jpg my wife found a clock that fit perfectly into a Dana 44 ring gear. It was in my TJ's front axle, just laying around and I had no plans for it. Started mocking up the rear coilovers and get the shock hoops figured out.20180302_004029.jpg

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.
