    Damn, 10 hours and no one posting "That's what she said" must be a fucking record here.

    You're just baiting with this post, I'm not biting.

    So did you weld the track bar brackets yet? I haven't welded mine yet and I'm looking for pointers.

    My plan was to wait a bit (500 miles) to make sure everything was ok before welding. But when installing the back, (on Sunday) I snapped one of the U-bolts.... so I had no choice. I only hit a couple spots, but plan on doing a more thorough job.

    I used a Dremel, a screwdriver and a small wire brush to clean the weld area best I could. And just plan on hitting whatever spots are reachable from the bracket to the housing... and new bracket to stock bracket. Jump around to small areas at a time on the housing and let it cool a bit in between.... I知 no pro, so I plan on leaving all the EVO bolts... this is just for added strength.

    We have similar plans. I've got about 700 + mi on mine now, so it's time to weld it up. My front bracket did loosen a bit after the 1st wheeling trip. I don't think the nuts backed off, just that the brackets adjusted themselves from road forces. After re-torqueung once it hasn't loosened in the last 500 mi.

    Flexed the Jeep out today and figured out I needed to trim the fenders and the Rear driveshaft boot was hitting the Evap skid. I really wanted to keep the fenders alone but I also dont want to add more bumpstop.... so the plan is to cut the minimal while leaving a stock look:


    Checking and measuring...

    Shifted the front of the Evap over one hole (2) and drilled a new hole. Done.

    About an 1 1/8 off the front...

    ... and 1 1/2 off the rear.

    Rather than remove the side marker.. I cut it along the same line... I値l fill the hole in the light wIth some right stuff RTV... it痴 barely noticable.. I still have some fine tuning to do, but I like how it came out.

About us
努ayoflife is a moniker that I致e 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.
