    Ok guys well the jeep is all back together again. The only thing left to do is fill the diff with oil and take it for a test drive. I'll post up tonight how that goes

    Ok first night of test driving.... Took it around my neighborhood twice to get the steering wheel all centered up, and took a few more zip ties to get the abs lines from rubbing on the tires but that went well. Just took it across town at 35 and 45 mph and so far so good. Drives great! Gonna stop for about 15 more mins to let the front diff cool down (probably being over cautious but oh well) then take it out on the highway and get it up to 60 to see how it does but so far so good.

    I can't help but think to myself with all the things I have pulled apart I must have missed something but I have double and triple checked every bolt so hopefully it's all good to go.

    First hwy drive went great! Held it at 50, 55, and 60, and it drove great, no vibrations no weird noises everything seems to be good to go.
    Now keep in mind this is with no front drive shaft so once I get the rear gears installed on the 21st I'll have to test it out with the new front drive shaft in too. But overall the first test drive was a huge success!!!

    That’s great news, no wandering and a solid piece of solid axle under there, must be a good feeling

    Oh it is an amazing feeling. I still have the fun of putting in the compressor and running all the air lines to the lockers but overall the big scary project is out of the way and it all worked out

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.
