    nice!

    the idea of running 37's is shrinking due to what seems like stock components not made to handle the upgrades.

    Hell, i'm still running the stock drag link on my 2010 JK

    almost forgot to mention the King bumpstops I saw on your work bench...another segment coming soon?

    Eddie was there any drilling done or making the hole bigger so that they fit. Compared to the JK.

    LOL!! I was still running the factory track bar AND drag link on Rubicat before we sold her. Moby is STILL running factory track bars. Both were just better on a JK. The JL stuff seems pretty light weight.

    And yes, you did see King air bumps. A future project in the works

    A hell of a lot beefier than stock, that's for sure.

    So, there was no drilling required to install the tie-rod or the drag link as was installed. IF you were to install the drag link as a flip, you would need to drill out the knuckle. Because I reused the OE steering stabilizer, I did have to drill out the crush sleeves to make it work.

    They now offer a single plane TRE for the drag link (pitman side) that eliminates the flop. I bought the new end direct from them and it fixed a small deadspot I was experiencing. I believe their new drag link this comes a standard. Sorry but the part number eludes me.

    Edit: Part number 4139-L for the single plane TRE. Only place I found it available was direct from synergy.

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.
