If you do end up choosing to go SYE, auto TJ front shafts are nearly perfect bolt in rear driveshafts

    I know I'll have to scrap the front driveshaft. Just thinking on a budget at the point when I want to build this one when I have another in the shop completely torn apart.

    New brakes for the grand. Still don't have a name yet but it'll come to me. I managed to buy this set when it was 50 dollars cheaper. Not bad for all 4 wheels. Screenshot_20180616-205248.jpg

    Fun stuff I went under there and realized it was the good front driveshaft. Of course it's CV at the axles because of the all time 4wd but the driveshaft itself is ujoint at both ends.

    I was sitting doing wiring on the TJ and got fed up so for the time being I started to swap the budget boost from my TJ onto the ZJ. IMG_20180621_205912.jpg all I am doing for now is the spacers and maybe my wheels and tires. I just did the front for the night since I have to get to work in the morning. My abs light is now tripped though. Any thoughts? It's obd1 so I can't just scan it with what I have.

    Also I trimmed the front bumper and got rid of the ugly plastic that hangs down. I will need to relocate the evap canister now though.
    Before:

    After:
    IMG_20180621_162921.jpgIMG_20180621_162932.jpgIMG_20180621_162944.jpg. Not my finest work but I'm happy with it. I just used a heat gun and a utility knife and it cut through like butter.

    I did not unplug a thing as far as I know. It did surprise me as well but that ABS light is plenty bright in the dash. I'm doing brakes tomorrow so I'll double check them to see if anything got tweaked or unplugged.

    Check that you didn’t knock something into the tone ring. Sometimes the sensors will trigger if there’s metal schmeg in between the tone ring and the sensor

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.
