    Thanks for the write up! I referenced it during the rebuild. No shop press so I had to use my vise and worlds scariest snap ring pliers. My Johnny joint would’ve been fine but I over greased it once and blew the inner seal.

    So I decided it’s time as well to rebuild the numerous bad joints I have after about 2 years of use thanks Steve for the write-up.

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.
