    Thanks. Pushed radiator back 1.5”, cut 5.75” off frame and moved a bunch of stuff. Lots of test fitting.

    Crazy how stubby the front bumper is. That sure come out clean for as much work as it had to take.
    Started out as $40 scrap steel from recycle yard.

    I was wondering if you pushed it back. I’ve seen them tight before but never that tight!!!

    You did an awesome job!

    Confidence is half the battle! Skill and a bit of luck make up the rest. I’m assuming that you made the rear bumper and I like the added rear facing winch! Mounting it in the jack compartment like that turn out really nice! The front bumper looks really unique as well. I’m still getting use to how tight it is to the grill. It almost doesn’t look real. Nice work all the way around!

    This is my approach to most things. I'll give it a try first and if I mess it up or it's more than I can handle I'll call someone to help me fix it..haha. I've had far more successes and learned a lot doing things this way.

    I mentioned about disabling the voice control because I don’t like hitting it by accident. I took the steering wheel apart and took the button assembly apart. On the button pad I cut off the Voice and phone button rubber tit that makes contact with the button inside.

    Not near taking the steering wheel apart, but I usually end up doing the same to the damn panic button on key fobs. Nothing like having the keys in your pocket, contorted in some way my body doesn't bend any more working on the Jeep, just to have something press against the panic button and the horn starts blaring.

    Think this is the first full b pillar chop I’ve seen. Looks good. Really like the front bumper all tucked in!

    I think you should make one really long half door though.
    I was thinking the same thing. Lol

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.
