It should hold me over until I can get an arb.
    That's awesome. Nice work.

    I test fit the new spacer on the carrier. Fit onto it perfectly. Put the ring gear bolts through the hole to check the alignment, they are spot on. After I put in the fuel cell, which should be here tomorrow, I'll test fit the new axle and get the 5.13 gear set.

    Starting to get ready for big boy stuff. The fuel cell came today from motobilt. Just barely fits behind the rear seat.

    Great stuff, I like all the machining posts

    Took the old 44 out and started test fitting the axle bracket setup before it gets final welded.

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.
