    Got the new bracket from artec. The axle is back in my jeep. Now I can get back to the rear. Picked up a pair of rotors but they don't fit on the hubs, I think machining the hubs would be the best way to get the two to fit together.

    Picked the pair of rotors ruffstuff uses for their disc brake conversion. They didn't fit on the hubs. Rhe shoulder that the drums seated on was too big. I machined the hubs so the rotors would fit. I chose to machine the hubs so I would only have to machine something once, and not have to machine the rotors every time I changed them, all be it not very often, still.

    Made some progress, tacked o. All the brackets and some repairs from going out in the snow. Upgraded my winch to a zeon 10 and had to replace a brake line that I'm pretty sure my tire chains pulled out.

    My disc brake caliper adapter brackets came today. Got those bolted on. I also ordered a fuel cell kit from motobilt to move the gas tank to behind the rear seat, can't wait for it to get here. I think I'll have to put it in before I start test fitting the new axle, it'll also set me up better for an eventual comp cut.

    While I'm waiting for the fuel cell to come in. I picked up a piece of .190" thick 4130 to make a ring gear spacer. I plan on gearing the axles to 5.13. The carrier break is at 4.56 and the current gear set is using the wrong carrier for the gears I want to use. Making the spacer was cheaper than buying a new carrier. It should hold me over until I can get an arb.

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.
