    Couple issues popped up over the winter. Lost all power to my temperature control panel and started leaking power steering fluid from the pump and box. Replaced the box and now the steering wheel is off center. Weird since everything is keyed to center. My headliner also took the shitter and I'm gonna have to do that at some point too. Heading to pick n pull tomorrow to find some budget heating parts.

    I pulled my intake to fix the plenum gasket. The real solution is the milled aluminum plate but I can't afford that so new dorman gaskets with right stuff gasket maker. The intake manifold is curing overnight and I will reassemble everything in the morning.IMG_20190309_133327.jpgIMG_20190309_143535.jpgIMG_20190309_143539.jpgIMG_20190309_133342.jpgIMG_20190309_133351.jpg

    Any progress on the ZJ? I almost picked up a 98 with a 5,9 for around $400. Engine was strong the whole rig needed work tho.

    Not a whole lot. It's my daily right now. Still burning oil after doing the plenum so idk 🤷. It's going to be putting on 1-2 hundred miles a day for the next three months while the TJ goes under the knife so I may pull the roof rack for fuel economy.

    And that's all she wrote. Head gasket blew on Thursday so that wraps up the rise of Yeti. She's posted up on Craigslist and the local jeep buy and sell page on Facebook. I love this thing but a head gasket is where I draw the line for a rig I paid 1200 for.

    If it was the 4.0 I'd do the head gasket no problem.

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.
