    Engine master kit came today. I also blew almost 250$ on spark plugs, wires, knock sensors, oil filter, valve cover paint, and more engine degreaser. Add another 306 for the heads to be hot tanked and machined and you've got yourself a very light wallet only 12 hours after you got paid.

    The fucking bald eagle sticker on the package makes the financial sacrifice null and void.

    Exactly. Who cares where it's made or how much it costs as long as it has a goddamn bald eagle on it.

    And of course there had to be a hurdle for an otherwise promising night of work. They shorted me my piston ring set. That pretty much stops me from finishing the bottom end of the motor and of course they aren't open until Monday

    One freshly painted and cured valve cover. I absolutely hate Chevy orange that goes onto every rebuilt Chevy motor so I picked up Chrysler blue. The ford blue was really nice looking but I can't in good conscience put Ford paint on a Chevy motor.

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.
