    I don’t have a JL and have nothing against them. BUT! I watched anyway to drool over your shop/garage...mostly the lift.

    Before we had our garage, I used to use a set of 6-ton Harbor Freight jack stands. They were able to get the job done for me.

    Regarding shock boots, yeah, I cut them off soon after installing them. In fact, we didn't have them on for the kick off run. Not a fan of boots

    Honestly, I actually like it a lot. I mean, it's no DTD but for what it is and for how affordable it is, it's maybe one of the nicer coil and shock lift I've tested.

    Great video! Good idea on the spring compressors. I bet they saved a lot of time.

    Hi Eddie, are you going to keep all the bracketry (i-e brake line relocation, axle brackets for swaybar links etc) or will you switch out for longer more durable solutions? (Longer swaybar links and longer lines?)

    Great video as always. After seeing you guys at the NY kick off run I’d have to say I like the overall stance for sure. Clearly enough room for 40’s lol.

    LOL!! Truth be told, I don't really like spring compressors but they did speed things along

    As of now, I see no need to replace the factory brake lines with extensions so for now, the relocation bracket will stay. Also, I like how the factory brake lines are secured in place and kept out of the way of other things. The sway bar link risers, I would rather run longer links but will have to do some looking around for something I like.

    They did but we're still sitting at a little more than 4" of lift.

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.
