    How do you like the 6.4? I've heard its a hit or miss with those motors, some last 100k miles and some will go a million miles.

    I'm actually about to go look at a "tow rig" in a few minutes. Not to tow the JK with but to use as a work truck for around the house. It will also allow me to work on the JK for multiple days vs needing it as a daily driver.

    I have 90k, it tows great. Fast as hell, from 60-100 it's a fucking rocket ship.

    I loved my old 7.3, it was one noisy motor with not even close to the same power.

    That being said, I owned the truck two weeks and had to have the transmission cooler replaced (on top of the transmission at the back of the motor). It was a $3,500 fix. I did buy the truck off an old guy (see old man bed cap). So it did sat for long durations.

    My Fat Bottom Girl. '01 Ford F-350 4x4 7.3 L. Bought her new in '01 and will never part. She has just over 240,000 miles. Currently in my buddies garage getting new injectors this weekend. Over the past few months we've freshened her up with new tires, leveling kit, all new LED lights, master cyl, hydro-booster, calipers and shoes, pwrsterring pump, side steps and probably a bunch of other shit I'm forgetting.

    Almost 3 grand plus labor. But she had a bad one so I'm replacing all 8 with glow plugs and wire harnesses. Can't wait to drive her after all that.

    Bad ass rig. The 7.3 is a great motor.

    That's what is holding me back!!!
    Did you do anything else beside those two areas?
    Did you "hop up" the injectors a bit? I find that on stock gearing and 35's I can still haul the mail. But I am thinking to get a little more out of them when I do it.
    I find that if I plug my truck in for a few hours, I can drive all day. So that is keeping me going.

    Mine isn't new and doesn't look the greatest anymore but it will tow what ever I put behind it although I've never towed my jeep ... 1965 Chevy C10 cab on a 1985 GMC 1 ton frame with a 400 ci small block with a 4 speed with a double over gear box giving 3 reverse gears and 10 forward gears (although I don't shift the secondary gear box that often) IMG_4646.jpg

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.
