    I ended up doing a new crate L94 only because I got a good deal on it. It was only about $800 more than the pull outs I was looking at. Otherwise, I would have gone with a used engine. I would definitely go through a reputable shop near you. If Exodus is close, I would talk to Bubba and seriously consider them.

    I went with an L92 pull out only because I got it for stupid cheap. I pulled it apart, checked the bottom end and rebuilt the top end just for piece of mind.

    Exodus is in the running...my buddy JJ just had his swap done by them. I like that I can put half down and finance the rest just a little further away than I really want. I may have to get over the distance though

    Yep. We just wrapped up the cam swap in his and the brake booster upgrade. It was unfortunate because we tried a new cam in his that had unbelievable torque but horrible mileage. Now with the LS9 cam he’ll have great power and mileage for such an awesome rig.

    We work for the same City so he's gonna let me check it out next time he drives it in. His Jeep is very nicely done I agree

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.
