    This is something I want to do sooner than later. Eddie, did you feel any difference in the steering at highway speeds?

    Looks like a solid upgrade for sure! Something that should be a must when you get a JL it seems like to secure everything.

    Ah, I the tie-rod diameter is bigger and so the OE clamp wouldn't work.

    You bet! Glad to hear you found it to be informative

    Honestly, on the JK, I don't know if something like this is necessary. We don't have anything like it on Moby and never had anything like it on our 3 other JK's.

    LOL - yeah, it was cold enough that I had to suit up

    Honestly, no. Just with the Synergy components alone, things have felt great. This is just added insurance.

    For how affordable and easy it is to install, I think so.

    Cool thanks Eddie. I did all the Synergy components on my JK and it really made things feel better. I want to do that again on the JL. And thank you for the video. Seriously, I always learn something new. I'e watched at least 10 other videos on installing the trackbar brace before I did it on mine and everyone said you gotta hold the steering box up or it will drop. And here you are just taking all the bolts out and letting it hang. and had no issues bolting every thing back up. Dammit, I should have bought the V6 so I can follow all your how to videos when the time comes when I work on mine.

    easy intstall!

    Been on the fence on this but i'm done with waiting on do-nothing FCA to fix this issue.

    Pissed that I have to spend money to fix shit like this on a stock vehicle but JEEP right?

    If this works, on with the mods!

    All the vendors I tried show it backorder until end of December or into January 2020, hot item!

    update 12/4/19 *** Got a call from Bubba, he has the last unit that he was going to install on his Jeep, open box otherwise new and is sending it to me. Awesome service!

    That's a nice install video. 👍I've been wanting to get my hands on the Synergy Mfg Front TB, but as jeeeep stated above, it's on backorder. I've got the TB and Brace on order, and was told to expect after the first of the year. Honestly though, it's so goddamn cold lately the last thing I want to do is bust my knuckles in my unheated garage. Lol.

    I would be honored to be the inspiration for one of Eddies videos honestly haha. Hopefully your experience and his and Cindy’s channel will be able to help a lot of people experiencing the same issue!

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.
