    So what's the easiest way to go about this?

    I currently have a pretty built 2door jeep jk. Axle's, arms, lift, etc. I'm in WANT and only a WANT for a 4 door. Apparently the stealerships are informing me that they will not swap axles in house if I decide to trade in. I can bring my rig back to stock except I'm short on axles. I was considering maybe just buying the 4 door. Swapping everything in my garage and selling the 2 door bone stock. Or purchasing a set of 44s installing and trading in stock. (Yea it's a rubicon).IMG_4395.jpg

    welcome to WAL, stop by and say hello in give us a wave section. first off nice looking jeep. I did all of this a few months back, check out my build thread. but if you can buy a 4 door and swap it all. the. sell the 2 door that's what I did and would probably be your best option to keep your upgrades and not lose to much money. I'm glad I switched! if you want a 4 door rubicon and still want to swap your axles. buy the rubicon, and a set of sport/Sahara axles on Craigslist and the swap your stuff but install the sport/Sahara axles as you'll be able to make some Xtra money with the rubicon axles seperate from the stock jeep you'll be selling.

    ah I gotcha, missed that part in the end, I think your on the right track with your options. my best case was owning 2 jeeps for a short period of time so if you can do that it's your best chance because then the stock parts from your new one goes straight over and out the door to a lucky new owner!

    I'd be even luckier if I found a white one so I can keep my AEV hood, but right now I'm pretty set on a granite 10a

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.
