    Please help me understand. If this is "not something you want to spin on all the time", how do you make them sustain your use of 150k miles? What kind of maintenance is involved?

    This ^^^^

    That is not to say that I haven't blown out a rear end before and had to drive a few thousand miles on front wheel drive before. It's just not recommended.

    Pardon me, if someone has already asked, but this 4 month old boy is keeping me busy.

    Are the Mopar UD60ís, and the Dana UD60ís the same? I assumed they were, but Iím not sure.

    Yes, different part numbers for Mopar performance and they come with a different diff cover that says Jeep.

    Misprint. They never updated the original description. Mopar performance started selling them in 2015.

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.
