    Thanks! I'm sure you probably know this but you live in a beautiful area. We went through there when we moved back here from the east coast. Thanks again for the comment!

    So I spent about another hour grinding and test fitting the drivers side rear bracket then my wife and daughter got home. Then work called and had to run in which took the rest of the afternoon. Just spent another hour cleaning up. Brackets are in place.

    And here’s the carnage

    Hopefully I’ll be able to button up the back tomorrow night after I get home from work.

    Nice! Looks good!

    Little tip with sawzall blades to save you some money... Run them as slow as you can. Wide open heats up the blade and will actually melt the teeth off. Once you start to see sparks it's all over.

    I was actually going to bolt in. I have a pretty light duty welder so I had thought about welding and bolting, but I'm a pretty novice at best welder. I may leave them bolted for a while to see how bad I abuse the rear lower control arm mount. If I feel I'm beating them up or they are hindering me, I may see if I can buy the hi clearance mounts and see if the guy that commented below you will help me get 'em on.

    They are bolt on but I recommend welding them in for sure. The lower mounts haven’t hung up on me too bad yet, but they do definitely hang lower than the high clearance. If they cause you too much trouble just get bigger tires

    Yeah, I'll probably see what I can do about that afterwards. I know I am creating more work for myself, but it's not a big deal to bolt and then weld is it? Thanks for the vote of confidence with them not hanging up too bad, but I'm sure 40's would help.

    The high clearance mount is quite a bit different than yours.

    I was fairly impressed.

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.
