    There is a company that makes something called a Speed Bleeder. It's just a bleeder valve with a check ball in it, so you can open it and pump the brakes by yourself. When you push down, fluid comes out, yet when you release the pedal, the valve closes and won't let air in. I used them when I swapped my axle and they really worked. I had a helper around just in case, but I thought they were a pretty cool product.

    Iíve owned all sorts of bleeding contraptions over the years. Iíve since passed them all onto others. The best bleed job Iíve ever done is a plain old gravity bleed. Slow, certainly, but itís always worked great.

    Or have a helper... I just get my wife to pump the pedal while I run around and crack the valves the old fashioned way

    When I did my lift install I purchased a vacuum bleeder. I thought it was going to be awesome. Couldn't get it to work so I went to the buddy system and it worked great.

    As others have said just get a plastic bottle and some clear plastic tubing. Works great

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
