    I love the no-nonsense approach you took to the rear tail lights. The custom fab work looks top notch! This looks like it is gonna be a fun trail rig for sure!!! Great looking work sir!

    Thanks guys, it's getting there slowly! Love your feedback

    Picked up 4m of 70mm² welding cable to run the battery from the back now. Going to try finish the wiring this weekend, get the fuel tank back in and hopefully look at turning her over again.

    All going well I'll pre-set the coilovers up next weekend and get those in just to get her feeling mobile again ...and then it's on to getting the rear diff fully welded, seal and repaint chassis and top coats to exterior body ...and then refit all seals and possible custom snorkel or air intake. I'm sure I'm missing a few things though lol

    Wink

    Super excited guys! She turned over first pop (but after much head scratching to locating and earthing all the interior loom (my god there's a lot! fuel pump earth = very rear part of the loom LHS )

    Anyway here's a laugh, so I haven't done anything in terms of preload or getting the appropriate coils yet. It's sitting on the coils that came factory with the Amada Defender II's, I think they might be 250lbs, the Jeep is barely even compressing them an inch! :lol: Guess she's quite light + with 3 of us sitting in the back only took it down another 4 inches, I need to come down at least 9 inches to get to the ridge height!

    So anyway here's how she's sitting currently (front coils to go in still), what a laugh! More photos to come.

    Word of warning, if you can avoid any bad jacking of a vehicle like I have done in the image below... avoid at all costs, it's dangerous and do not recommend anyone lift any vehicle like this! My JK supported us from an injury or death experience at least I spose

    Bit of an update

    Hi guys, so I've got the front coils in and did a bit more with the loom, still have to tidy up the fuse box and what not. Not too much longer before it's on the trails!

    Once again, this is not the ride height! I had her weighed in the weekend so I can calculate required spring rates.

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.
