    Trainwreck's Build

    I should have started a build thread years ago, crap, I should have joined years ago.. I was a long time lurker until a year ago when I decided to join Wayalife. I purchased a new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara at the end of 2012, and have spent the past few years getting to know this thing inside and out. Well, now its time for some much needed upgrades and figured I should start a thread to post up any questions or thoughts I had concerning this build. To start, here is a photo of my jeep shortly after purchasing it.DSC00425.jpg

    So the plans are new suspension, axles, and tires. I am almost ready, just getting my new daily driver ironed out. Here is a more updated photo from earlier in the year at Moonlight Racing in Southern,Mo. sidecreek.jpg

    Ok, I am getting ready dive into this build. I haven't ordered everything yet, but plan to within the next month and was curious if there is anything else I should look at while I'm doing things. Here's the list

    EVO MFG Double D Pro
    Dynatrac Pro Rock 44 Unlimited
    -ARB,ProSteer,5.13
    Dynatrac Pro Rock 60 Rear
    -Arb,semi float,5.13
    Dynatrac ProGrips
    JE Reel 1350 drive shafts

    Not sure how long it will take me to get this all put together, I plan on tearing out the Rock Krawler lift and axles and going through the whole jeep to take care of any rust that has developed over the years. As much as I want to hurry up and complete this I know if I just slow down and take care of a few things along the way I will have an awesome end result. Firsts things first I need to order this crap and get my Jeep torn apart, I have a slew of packages brown santa has dropped off already and its making me anxious to get started. Hopefully by the end of next month i'll be on jack stands..

    Keeping same tire size?
    Will you need to trim fenders?
    Got any skids or some underbelly protection?
    What do you have in the way of recovery gear?
    Other goodies to consider: headlights and on board air

    I have 35" Trail Grapplers now, and I decided to keep these till they wear down and then upgrade to 37's.
    I will need to trim the fenders.. not sure how I have made it this longfender.jpg

    I already have Evo's Protek skid system underneath, a Warn 10s, snatch blocks, recovery ropes, tools, jacks, and on board air is already wired up and ready for arb lockers. I would like to get new headlights, but for now the stock ones will work

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.
