    I've got the ultimate Frankenlift... Pieced together with EVO uppers, Currie lowers, Currie steering links, EVO front springs, and OME rear springs. I'd say it's definitely doable. 😎

    I did it that way because of cost, but also because I was able to get what I wanted. Lift packages tend to give a 2 door more lift than advertised, so by piecing it together I was able to dial it in for my specific needs. Even though the manufactures are different, everything works together very well. It took a lot of research and time, but I believe my end product is better than I could have achieved with a kit.

    Yea I'm thinking I like this idea.... I really love the ride of Ranchos springs. I definitely want Curries arms. Shocks are another matter then there's swar bar links.

    Exactly. As long as you know what you are doing and trying to achieve this can work. Also if you can find things second hand you can save some money too. The real benefit of a complete kit is that you can usually save a little bit of money by it all being packaged together vs. buying it all separately. When I was big into mountain biking (jeep took over that hobby) they were called groupos...haha.

    Only thing with going all Currie arms is there front uppers can't be adjusted on the Jeep.

    Hands down the best arms for the money. Awesome customer support. They color match their arms and will replace them for bent or failed components.


    I've had 3 jeeps mixed with all TF and JKS suspensions. Yes, TF can be stiffer than other rides, but put 800lbs worth of bumpers, winches, spare carriers and gear... then check your spring sag compared to "other spring setups."

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.
