    The last couple items are the brake lines and fuel lines from in line tube and the brake booster and then itís down to putting together this giant puzzle.

    Great setup, I put an AX15 in my CJ7. What a night and day difference from the original T5 that was in there.

    Iíve had mine in the CJ about 2 years now and havenít had any issues on the road or the trail. Couldnít make those T5ís last a year just driving on the road. Now all I have to do is get the steering tightened up. So many other plans for it, those are for another time. Look forward to seeing yours finished.

    I was on my second T5 after I disintegrated one going down the highway. There were a couple other rebuilds in there over the two decades Iíve owned it too.

    Is the AX15 like the 5 speed in a TJ?

    The first one used in the TJ. I think 97-00
    Edit: Ope this was supposed to be a reply to JKBrick. I haven't spent heavy time on the app in a while, just getting used to it again.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
