    So, question, I didnít happen to notice, with that much flex Iím assuming there are no limiting straps? Obviously the brake lines are extended, at those lengths what keeps them from getting caught/snagging/pinched in stuff? Sorry if noob questions, but have never seen a setup like this in person.

Makes for an interesting ďwell shit, howím I gonna do thisĒ when you donít have the luxury of being surrounded by all the trees you could want to winch off of. Had this hovering in the back of my mind
    LOL - if you were up in Prison Hill, at least you were within walking distance from help. But, if you were in need of help, let me know and I'd come out... well, assuming I'm home anyway

    It's reassuring to have something like this installed by guys who clearly know what they're doing

    We had to cut the flex testing after we found the issue with the front sway bar link ends digging into the sidewalls at a full flex and turn. But, we hope to have that fixed before the end of the week and resume testing soon after

    Yup, they're kinda lame in every which way you look at them. Essentially, they're just arms that are about an inch too long and nothing but trouble.

    The brake lines are rigid enough that so long as you have them routed out of the way, they should stay out of the way.

    Eddie,
    I know I've said it many times but you and Cindy produce absolutely the best videos. They are not only entertaining but informative.

    I loved seeing the EVO guys cutting off the brackets with a cutting torch. It reminded me of watching my grandfather in the 70's in his Auto mechanics shop he built in his back yard across the street from an Oldsmobile factory. He used it for everything.

    It's always nice to see Mel, he and his guys do such good amazing work. I can't wait to see the finished product along with the testing videos.

    Thanks for bring us along for the lesson in welding as well. That guy has some mad skills laying dimes. Very impressive.

    Thank you, we really do appreciate it. As far as the welding goes, it should be noted that the JL frame is more of a challenge to weld on than the JK. We've seen lots of guys struggle with it but Tommy just knows his stuff. In spite of the issues, he can still stack the dimes

    Another great video...and a lot of film editing...

    It's amazing how fast two guys who know what they're doing and have all the tools necessary can bang out a suspension mod...

    Looking forward to the coil over install...

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.
