    Solid tip on the grounding strap. I did a similar install using the Mopar tailgate reinforcement and struggled with signal/grounding. Adding the ground strap made all the difference.

    Thanks! I honestly think that people not establishing a good ground is why so many think that CB's are no good. Install it right and they will work great.

    Hinge bolts

    Did you end up going back to the original hinge bolts, or did you stick with the 8x8’s? Great write-up!

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.
