I've done both.

    What he said. Iím in the same boat as Ddays. I really donít wheel that hard when I do go wheeling but Iíve still managed to bend 4 different rear chromoly shafts. All were upgraded and bigger and stronger than stock ones and they still some how got bent.

    Anyone who has wheeled with me would tell you I donít push my rig too hard. Sometimes shit just happens. Hope you get it figured out soon. Keep us posted

    Radiator hoses, thermostat and coolant flush... It was a shit show. The good news is I don't have to clean my 5 gallon bucket because I didn't get a single drop of coolant in it.

    On a serious note though, my petcock doesn't even drip when I open it. I tried blowing back through it with a airgun but nothing. Can the petcock be removed?

    My old radiator is still out in the shop, when I get home after a bit Iíll look at it. If not I wonder if you could fish a wire through it to try to clean it out.

    That's a good idea. I appreciate the help. My old Cherokee you could just pull the whole petcock out. I'm not sure if the JK is the same but with all the plastic on the bottom of the radiator I didn't want to risk breaking it.

    You can pull it out. Just grab it with pliers after itís open and pull out while turning it some moe. Probably not the easiest thing to do while itís in the Jeep.

    Highly suggest never using the petcock on radiators. Something I learned the hard way on German cars. Theyre fragile, break, leak, the orings fail, sometimes wont engage all the way. Itís faster and easier to just pop the lower rad hose off.

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.
