    So, we used coilovers that EVO had in the shop and they were way too soft, 150/250. We added a ton of preload just to get it driving. Mel is shipping us new coils and I'm hoping we get them by tomorrow so that we can hit the road on Tuesday. Once installed, we'll be running 250/300. Hoping that'll be enough.

Looking fwd to the rest. And oh yea, I almost forgot, if they happen to need a jl to test fit/run that DTD, just let me know lol.
    LOL!! That was King's new 2nd facility and it was impressive for sure.

    LOL - if it were anyone other than EVO doing this, it'd be hard.

    Just WOW! Just enjoyed watching the first two vids one after the other. I knew the second was coming to an end but I didn't want it too. Thank you for documenting everything you have done with all your Jeeps. Hopefully my learning curve on what I want to do with my upcoming JT will be much quicker than on the JK lol.

    Great video!! When I saw the Dana axles going in I questioned what happened to Dynatrac. Thanks for explaining and it totally makes sense. It will be interesting how they hold up in comparison. You know Dana is holding their breath since you'll tell it like it is without sugar-coating anything.

    Can't wait to see it when it leaves EVO!

    250/350 on mine. Rides pretty great but may go to 300/350 down the road. Both springs are 14”.

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.
