    Nice little touch....

    I didn't even ask for this (nor did they charge me), but the boys at DCD hooked me up with these neat little guides to keep the emergency brake cable out of harm's way. The zip ties I were using would of course fail upon LCA contact with a rock or ledge (note the frayed casing just aft of the guide bracket).

    Looks and sounds great! Hope they used high-heat RTV on the motor mounts.

    I’m kinda following you path. 40s and axles soon. Then suspension hopefully spring, then maybe someday I’ll take the plunge and go for the 6.4.

    I was going to go sleeper, but the exhaust gives her away instantly. So I thought this badge was a nice touch!

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.
