    Martha the TJ

    I haven't officially started covering my build on a forum but this seems as a good a start as any. I own a 1997 Jeep TJ with the stock 2.5l 4 banger motor with 117000 miles on her. Since I've owned her I've upgraded the shock system, put in 2" coil spacers, Herculinered the interior of the tub, put 31" tires on her, and upgraded the fuel injectors. My dreams for her are big but unfortunately my paycheck is small so it's little increments at a time. Will post pictures within about a day!

    Once again sorry for the delay, as the under hood pictures show, the S belt is routed bypassing the AC compressor because it froze on me over the weekend and melted off the larger belt,

    Today I picked up a 2' firestick, and realized I hadn't though of a logical place to put it, so I fabbed up a bracket and bolted through my light housing and also through the ground plate that runs through there onto the tub itself. IMG_20170428_212134.jpgIMG_20170428_212128.jpg

    I think I've seen your jeep running around. You in Oregon?

    Got a lot of work done today on the interior, I put on my smittybuilt Molly seat covers, installed my jump seat, strapped in my ammo can which has a quart of oil, atf, a funnel, and my jumper cables. I finished mounting my CB in my tuffy overhead console and I found my rubber mats and laid them down because my Herculiner is starting to lose its texture. If anyone has anything they think I should add then let me know!

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.
