    Everything you said is true. The difference being that when you do a V8 swap you end up with a V8 and in the LS case, a 6 speed transmission. If the cost of the swap ends being $10k all in, I’d hardly call that worth it. Might as well trade up to a JL at that point.

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.
