    Great idea and write up (as usual). I anticipate having to do this after the lift and tires and before the bumper/tire carrier. I was worried how to best do this (a la EVOlander) and now I have the solution. Thanks!! Now I just need the $$ for the lift and tires...

    edit: meant to say well nut, not nutsert.

    Daystar has two different types with the same part number. One was decent and a hard poly material. Other is a foam and flimsy and doesn't work well.

    Great write up!

    I drilled into hockey pucks for bump stop extensions. I found if I threw them in the freezer for a couple of hours they were a lot easier to drill. Then again, I don't have a drill press.

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.
