    Looks very nice. I have used a Wilton hitch vise (I think 6") but the thing is big and heavy. This looks much more compact and therefore easier to pack with you. How is the clamping force compared to a full size?

    I think I've been there for at least one of those things

    The Wilton is nice but as you noted, a LOT bigger and heavier. Clamping force is as strong as you can muscle into it.

    Definitely one of those ‘why didn’t I think of that ‘ ideas. On the short list of mods for me.

    btw, what did you end up doing that broken sector shaft in the last picture? Had a spare steering gear?

    I run an old Delphi box and carry a spare sector shaft with me.

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.
