    So I’m keeping the front D30 for now. I know it’s not ideal but hear me out. My buddy upgraded to 44’s and tossed me his old D30. It came out of an 88 4.2. While I’ve got the time I decided this is the axle I’ll use for the build. I stripped it all down with the idea that I’ll use this housing, replace all the seals, get rid of the 2 piece passenger axle, and throw the 4,10’s from the axle that’s on the Jeep now. Here’s the progress so far.
    Before.

    For the steering knuckles, brake calipers, stuff like that, I’m going to try electrolysis and see how it goes.

    This crazy spring weíre having here in the northeast is seriously messing with the build schedule. But it does afford me some time to get some front axle parts ready. The D30 I have is old and rusty so I went looking for a solution to do some rehab. Set up an electrolysis tubto eliminate the rust in all the hard to reach places. Itís so worth it, and after a day it practically wiped clean. Major parts of the build will be starting soon.

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.
