    Waving from Rocky Ford, CO

    HELLO!!... Saying hi from the southern part of Colorado.

    Occupation - Music Teacher (both the wife and I)
    Children - Nope, unless you count our 2 Great Danes.
    Jeep - 2007 JKU (mine) - 3" Teraflex, 35 MTR's, LoD Stubbie Rear Tire Carrier, Chopped Fenders and Front Bumper.
    2000 TJ (wifes) - Stock (for now)

    Love both my Jeeps even though the JKU is out of service due to that Damn Death Wobble, replaced track bar bushings, then replaced track bar with an adjustable, ball joints, drag link, tie rod ends... Still Death Wobbling. Next is the bolt kit from Northridge, after that I don't know what to do.

    During the summer we get out as much as often as we can (the winter school schedule doesn't allow much time). Camping, Hiking, Geocaching, Kayaking (just got hooked this past summer), and of course four wheeling.

    welcome to wayalife!! sorry to hear about your DW. when you started replacing parts, did you make sure to go back and check everything else again? DW has a way of screwing everything up again and with each thing you do to address it, everything else needs a hard look as well. also, i see that you're running MTR's, have you tried swapping in a different set of tires just to see if it makes a difference? we had a similar problem a while back and found that a lot of it was coming from our MTR's.

    Wayalife, I have checked everything many times and it all looks and feels like it should. I have not tried a new set of tires yet. We were having problems balancing the MTR's. I have my stock wheels and tires I may try those. Will they work without spacers? At least for a test run?

    The vacations are the best part about teaching! Every holiday, spring break, summer. It doesn't get much better.

    i'm willing to bet that a lot of your problems are with the MTR's. changing mine out to a set of toyo's made all the difference and i've talked to a lot of other people who've had similar experiences. as far as needing spacers go, if they're just stock tires, i don't see why they'd be needed.

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.
