    Or at least get some RCVs. They’re noisy as hell but tough as nails. I still have my old ones from the axles I’m taking off. Let me know if you’re interested. I haven’t posted them for sale as I’ve been too lazy. Hit me up.

    RubiDave and I decided to get out for a shotgun trip to Anza Borrego despite a dubious weather forecast. Auspicious rainbow at Pinyon Mountain trailhead

    Both of us got through the Squeeze unscathed. Heart attack hill had a bit of pucker.. flexed out and did some skidding. Dave found a rock to park on in honor of jdofemi (what would Jerry do)

    We made it to camp and got tents and a shelter up before it started pouring .

    Took Fish Creek out and headed to Borrego Springs in the am for gas and breakfast . Ran Coyote Canyon and was on the way back when I lost steering . Somehow lost a cotter pin AND the Castle nut on the synergy tie rod . Luckily was a hardware store in town nearby. Carrying spare 5/7-18 nuts from now on. Wouldn’t have been a Wayalife run without a mechanical .

    Looks like fun. Someday I’d like to get out there.

    This looks pretty sketchy though. Hope you didn’t drive home with it like that. Adjustments.JPG

    I did . Best we could do without a castle nut . Actually works really well . Torqued bottom bolt to spec. Couldn’t get cotter pin through so the top bolt is just a jam nut . Checked when I got home and both bolts still tight . Steering feels fine too . Will deal with it soon but that nut isn’t available at local hardware stores near me .

    Steering is overrated...you can use your winch to steer; I've seen it done...somewhere...

    It was all fun and games except for the mud.

    Glad to see you guys holding up my end when I can't make it out to play. 👍

    Looks like fun.

    Good fix on the tie rod. Using a jamb nut will do, just stop and check it now and then.
    I wonder what happened to let the castle nut come off?

    I need to get my axle in so I can go on a snow run when it's time.

    What was weird is the cotter pin had to come out for the nut to back off. We talked a mile back up the trail looking for the nut and didn't find it. Who knows it could have been missing for days and the taper just holding it together. Scary to think that could have happened on the highway at 80mph.

    Looks like you guys had a fun adventure...

    I’ve noticed some of the cotter pins that come with these parts are too small... I keep some larger ones around which help secure the nut better. Also red paint marking the nuts really helps to attract your eye when doing quick checks.

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.
