    Yup, that will stop you in your tracks. What width did you go with?

    70.2" with 4.75" backspace wheel. I am staying coil/shocks and 38" tires for now. Gotta save up for awhile after this. Running big bore steering box but no hydro assist yet. Reliability is what I am going for so I can wheel relatively worry free while I save for the next steps. It's never really done though is it.

    Looks awesome!

    I love the kingpin axles. I'm so over ball joints. I've pounded on kingpin 60's in my work trucks and never had any kind of breakage or wobble. 👍👍

    I have had wobble on ball joint 60's before, and that was with 30" tires😭😭

    Congrats. The axles look awesome. I Like the diff cover.

    I remember when I first got the one tons for my Jeep. I couldnít believe how freaking big they are. Now I look at them and donít think they look that big. And I think my 37ís look little and wish I had 40ís.

    Axles look nice, do you have to have custom wheels to run them?

    No they just screwed up when they drilled them. 8 lug wheels should be the bigger bore normally.

    Seriously. They look freaking huge. Iím almost regretting not just going straight to 40ís but I was running out of $ and 38ís were cheap. I can get by without hydro assist for awhile with them and I shouldnít have to do any more trimming or suspension changes. They even built the rear shock mounts to rockstar skids specs for me so shock length and bump stops stay as they are now.

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.
