    Md juan is actually the only manufacturer of steel replacement jeep tubs. The omix tub is made by md juan. Omix may take it and do a little to improve the fit and finish, but at the end of the day its a md juan tub

    Nothing wrong with AMC motors. They used a mixture of bolt on parts like carbs & ignition pieces from other manufacturers over the years but from the intake down to the oil pan its all AMC. The 304/360/401 all share the same architecture, there is no big block so if you wanted to fit the 401 in its a simple bolt in. And they can be made to run damn good. Knew a guy that had a build 360 in his CJ7 that'd pull wheelies all day long.

    Guys swapped to the small block Chevys same reason they do the LS's in JK's: Cheap, parts availability excellent, lot of aftermarket support.

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.
