    Just picked up this 1999 4x4 a few weeks ago.Going to use as a daily driver for now and build it up mild as I fix some things.Has a bunch of small issues,the oil filter adapter leaks,stereo doesn’t work etc..
    Debating on 3.5” lift with 31s or 4.5 with 33s right now.

    Nice Jeep! A friend of mine bought one like that a few years ago. He and his son worked on it together to be a reliable 1st vehicle for his son.

    Nice Cherokee! Congrats. I think you’ll find there are lots of issues you can fix in your garage and tons of good donor vehicles you can grab serviceable parts off. Here in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies they are often a weapon of choice for everything from daily drivers to hard core wheelin’. Enjoy!
    Embrace the Recoil!

    Nice Jeep! Good luck with the build. Just FYI, oil filter housing leak is just an O- ring. Super easy fix. You might have already known that. It's a very common problem on 4.0's.

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.
