    Looks great, David!

    I just replaced both of my front unit bearings. The ones linked in Eddie’s writeup have short speed sensor wires. I have since learned there are bearings with longer wires. Just look up your year. If you still end up short, just re-route them, it’ll be fine.

    I personally found the job itself fairly easy. I only had to buy the socket for the axle nut. I think it was 36mm, but double check the unit bearing writeup.

    So I have a question for the Wayalife community what is a good lug nut solution to make it where the lug nuts properly seal onto the JL rubicon wheels.
    Any and all advice is much appreciated as im not finding much help within my research.
    And GO

    Hello all my wayalifers have missed yall so much, due to lack of time, no laptop and app issues, its been hard to make post.
    So enough of that D-day has been doing great I did finally get the unit bearing replaced and so far so good. I'm hoping thats the last of the problems for now haha.
    I have a few projects I'm looking to do in the coming years ahead.
    1- I found a guy Kev Creations on Facebook that makes custom solid wood shift knobs so I'm saving up for a pair of them just little something i wanted to do since my shift knob is partially broke figured I get something personalized and unique.

    2- I'm gonna upgrade to some built up Rubicon Axles since I dont get to wheel much and upgrade driveshafts after that I'm thinking Adams 1310 I don't plan on going bigger than 35s if that happens.

    3- I know everybodies opinions are very subjective on superchargers due to past experiences but I wanna give it a try. As bad as I would love to do a LS swap or diesel swap it would take me forever to save for one so thats why I wanted to try the supercharger. I'm looking into a RIPP so we shall see.

    Well enough chattering heres a recent pic of D-day 2.0. Hopefully I can get this app issue fixed soon. Cheers to all.

    Check out the Exodus Jeeps YouTube channel for a supercharger update. Looks like there is a good possibility for the one Bubba is testing out.

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.
