    Another great video as usual. I've been researching drive shafts for my JKU and was looking at Adams and Tom Woods, but now I'll see what's available local to me as an option. Thanks for sharing!

    Yup, here's the thread in question:
    https://wayalife.com/showthread.php/...nt-Drive-Shaft

    Paid $369 for a custom shaft and built to my specifications and got it stupid fast. I paid Adam's a stupid $1439 both of Jet's shafts - that over $700 each! I won't say it's a rip off being that they were able to help me out in a pinch but it's hardly what I'd call a deal. It always makes me laugh when I see people who only buy based on brand name.

    As I always recommend, look for a local shop first. If you play with your Jeep, you will use them again and again.

    You bet. We love helping people to learn how to help themselves.

    As always, you have provided a remarkable amount of detail and information, not to mention the great video work. I have gotten great use and knowledge from you in all things jeep. Thank you & Cindy.
    That you provide pros, cons and your personal preferences for the upgrades you make to all of your family of jeeps makes a world of difference for those, such as myself, that is always looking to increase our knowledge base. Again, Thank you and Cindy for all you do for the community and YouTube viewers.
    Courtesy is given. Respect is Earned.

    Good video, and per usual.

    This video was for the JL but seems very similar to what I gather is done for a JK. Is there anything procedure wise that would be different on a JK?

    I noticed when you checked the pinion nut rotational torque you had the tires on, I've read elsewhere you get better reading with the wheels off or even with the shafts removed. What's your take on that?

    Another well made, informative video. Watching you beat on your fuel tank with a four-pounder reminded me how satisfying it is to beat on something with the BFH...

    Any tips on how to measure for a custom shaft length relative to your lift?

    Can’t speak for all drivelines, but when I ordered my Adams drivelines, they asked for a measurement to build it properly. Here’s a rear example:

    Well, we really do appreciate you saying as much. In spite of what some seem to think, we're not in the business of trying to push products but rather, just want to help others where we can. We really do hope that videos like this can help them to save some money and learn a thing or two along the way.

    I'm not trying to setup gears, I'm just trying to find where things are at so that I can get back to that point later. Most people and even shops don't even do that much. It's just an extra step I like to do for my own peace of mind.

    Oh, the install on a JK is the same.

    This ^^^^ is what Adam's will need. Most shops will want something similar or the same. If you're running yokes as opposed to flanges, it'll be a bit different but similar. The biggest difference will be in how much you get charged.

    Wow! That was a great video and you make it all look so painless. I do have a question about the control arms. Those JJ have the nipple for grease. I noticed you mounted both sides with the nipple up (I presume for ease of service). Does a half turn make enough difference that you would ever run nipple down (notwithstanding the greasing difficulty) to get a more even pinion/driveshaft angle?

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.
