    If you're going higher that 3 inches, get the long arm.

    Mine has 235K on it. The engine runs perfectly, the only issue I have is with the trans. And that’s because the previous owner(s) didn’t have the bands adjusted when it was serviced. The 42re gets a bad rep, but if it’s taken care of properly it’s actually a decent transmission.

    Good to know. I have read about problems worth the V-8. I've found a Power Nation video on a WJ running the 4.0, 6.5 Rusty's, with 33's. Really digging it. Sweet rig ya got there too!

    These ZJ's and WJ's can be had really cheap too! You can get a pretty clean one for under $4000.

    I remember watching that video. That WJ turned out really nice. The aftermarket is starting come around and embrace the WJ.

    Thanks. Mines on the extreme end of a WJ build. I’m loving it so far, but it still needs some work before I can tackle any trails. It should be good to go by the end of this summer.

    If you end up getting a WJ and have any questions ask away. I’m not a expert, but I have done lots of mods to mine.

    Definitely, and thanks! There was another extreme overlander WJ out there with the DB corners, bushwackers, and front Gorilla bumper.

    I recently sold my 04 WJ. Had it for 5 years. Originally bought it for my daughter to drive, she left for college and wanted something smaller and with better mileage. I kept it for another year and a half and decided to let it go. It was the 4.0, only thing I had to do the whole time was service it and replaced the battery once. Great dependable Jeep. I say buy it, build it and enjoy for years to come. Look forward to seeing what you do with it.

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.
