    Just a little update on my continued mock up before the final tear down and painting....

    For the 1987 to 1995 YJ Tilt Steering Column I picked up- thought I would post things along the way... sure there are other threads on this same topic... but here is my experience so far.

    The YJ Column is a perfect match to the stock CJ5 interior brackets-






    Also- when you remove the top part of the stock steering shaft and slide the top half of the YJ one onto the lower half of the stock CJ5 steering shaft- Matches up perfect!





    Having a Tilt Wheel is a game changer to getting in and out of this thing for sure. Next will need to see how the electrical hooks up but seeing the two ignition plugs on the Column are the same ones on the CJ5- wont know till I get there.

    all the pieces are starting to fall into place- Cannot wait to get some color on it.

    Looks great and that steering column fit in perfectly!

    Dang!


    Has been way to long since I have updated you all on my 1976 CJ5 project-

    Have been busy doing the body work and Painting. This was a new Repli tub but for anyone that has bought one... they are little crude around the edges but have to remember it is a Jeep!

    So took some time to work things out a straight as possible.










    Once I got the body filler all sanded and worked down... hit it with a high build primer!

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.
