The shop that fixed my friendís axle is a 90 minute drive, so I canít just pop over there.

    Also, I think to be safe youíd want to remove your carrier, locker wiring, and maybe even the pinion gear and seals before welding, so they donít all get cooked. Thatís gonna add several hundred dollars in labor unless you find a welder whoíll let you do all that work yourself in his shop. Unlikely.
    Damn, sounds like a ton of work. Would be great to have it done though. Thanks for the info..... maybe one day.

    Just go easy on the skinny pedal and you'll be just fine. When in doubt, throttle out is not the best of mottos to follow..

    Im sorry! It looks like my ham fisted self managed to delete my post when I was trying to edit it.

    I had a question about the Pro Grips... the front rotors, at 13.5" are slightly smaller than the rears, at 14.25". Is this due to limited space, or are there other concerns?

    And I apologize again for the hi-jack!

    Just guessing, but maybe it is to give more braking surface so the rear brakes can grip a little more to avoid nose dives in a hard braking situation and allows for more even braking.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
