    Hey Iím getting ready to install a ram does the port with the elbow go to the passenger side of the ram (assuming it is mounted like the photo)

    Did you use two straight fittings coming from the box? What did you go with on the ram side?

    Thanks!

    Alright well I finally got around to it and got the BIG Bore XDII-R all mounted up. Took my time today took half a day or so. Most of the time for me was trying to figure out how to get the top right bolt out behind the spring. I Didnt have a long enough of extender so had to run out and grab those since I'm at my parents for the holidays. But over all the hardest thing was the dam pitman arm yet again. I did the two hammer method for quite a while then just ripped the whole thing out still attached to the drag link, and still mounted to the passenger side, so that's possible too haha. You just have to disconnect the track bar which u should be doing either way. I did it this way so that I could actually hit the pitman in the right direction of the way I wanted it to come off the taper. 20171227_115048.jpg20171227_115756.jpg20171227_115053.jpg
    Here's how I got it up there and just kinda used the ratchet, more so tied it to the front bumper. If I did it again I'd position the black hook on the non bolting side of the box so it can get free easier when u start setting bolts. I just used a screwdriver to find the bottom right hole on the box as it was the more accessiable and goes all the way through to help me set my first bolt. Two people would defently be easier.

    Only one problem from the install and I read it somewhere but I guess I let it slip my mind or just was careless. The clock spring has been damage somehow and it's usually from too much movement in the steering wheel when u unattach from stock box. I actually was pretty careful about not moving the shaft but obviousally not enough. I noticed it right when I finished the install and drove it in a circle i kept hearing a scratching noise when I would turn in my steering wheel. Not a click or a snap, but like plastic rubbing. So I threw it back on the lift to turn the wheels and look around. Found this after a while:20171227_152919.jpg For now I got it all tucked back in there kinda neat so it dosent rip but just be careful I guess I don't really know what else to say to help others prevent theirs from breaking, but my other buddy had it happen to him on a Cherokee the other day.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
