    It amazes me how seamless they can bring two pieces of metal together so seamlessly.

    That whole corner was replaced. I’ve never been thru something like this. It’s crazy!

    Still have a couple issues to work thru. The front pinion angle is too low and we’ll have to shim it a bit or cut the spring mount on the axle and rotate up a bit. But we need to get all the weight back on that before we can make that call.

    What we do know is the gas tank and skid are going to have to get modified. The rear shackles are right at the edge of skid plate. With any flexing, they’ll be into it.

    We did go from YJ springs and I know that has some affect there. I’ll be calling Genrite tomorrow to check with them before we do.

    Shiny. What paint did you end up using? Any coating inside the frame?

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.
