    Picked the Jeep up today after having some exhaust hangers made up. All is running good excluding the cooling fan. The 4.88 gears are way too low so first gear is a waste. I also need to fix the Speedo. It's off about 12mph at 60.

    What’s wrong with the fan, and which fan are you using?

    I have a Camaro fan and it's not getting the pulse signal. I've been talking with Robbie and he is looking through my tune to see if he can find anything. He did say that fan is a little harder to get on the 07-08 network.

    I'm all for than but bigger tires need bigger axles, and bigger axles need new wheels and the Jeep dilemma goes on and on.

    Thanks again for the parts. The headlights have already gotten comments.

    It's been a while since I last updated this. I've done some small things over the past couple months. First thing, I don't think I ever posted up the engine bay all put together.

    I put on some rigid backup lights based on somebody's experience here and I have to say they are pretty damn bright. I pulled the bumper and mounted the licence plate to the frame cross member so I had to get creative with the reverse light mounts.

    I found a Rubicon sway bar on eBay and got a no limits actuator for it.

    Spent a lot of time trying to decide where I wanted my shift switch. Then I started pulling panels and found really the only place that had enough room for it.

    My old factory foam steering wheel was in pretty rough shape so I looked at the Jeep options and it was not just too expensive but it was insane what they want for a steering wheel that has no electronics in it. So I turned to searching the interwebs and found a leather wheel for a TP cruiser that was under $100. The color is not perfect but it doesn't disintegrate in my hand every time I drive so it's a step up.

    Last week I got an EVO drag link flip kit and ditched the drop pitman arm and track bar drop bracket.

    The worst part of the install was breaking my ratchet handle off and tearing up my hand.

    I think that sums up any progress made. It's coming along but we got so much damn snow this year that Lord only knows when the trails will open.

    For anybody who is curious about the 3.8 that came out of my Jeep. I flipped it over on the stand today and it appears that one of the rod bearings may have gotten a little warm.IMG_20190420_145947.jpgIMG_20190420_150007.jpg
    So if anybody has a 3.8 that they need parts for, let me know.

    Well, it's looking good.

    Too bad the Harbor Freight ratchet is not up to suspension duty

    Good updates. I honestly see a lot of rod bearings fail like that on the 3.8s. We've been lucky I guess. Got almost 200k on ours.

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.
