    That looks beefy for sure! Did you happen to check to see if you had the deflection that doubletap had before installing the brace?

    Winter has arrived! Still mind boggled with doubletapsaddy’s video, crazy. Definitely a mod worth doing even with out the steering gear moving, it really reinforces the track bar.

    Awesome video, I see a heater in your future!

    Nice video and awesome timing Eddie. I Just ordered one of these from Bubba for my buddies JL. Side question and little off topic and I only ask because I saw your Synergy tie rod. Can you use the factory steering stabilizer clamp with the Synergy tie rod?

    Sucks you got sick. Seems everyone I know has been sick. Shitty time for it too with the fun weather you guys had come through.
    Scary that you actually know me so well

    Yeah, Cindy got it first and I thought for sure I was gonna miss it and then bam - it hit me just before we did this install. Totally sucked. Everyone and their mother seems to be getting it around here too.

    I looked and for the life of me, I can't say that I saw anything on my JL. Just with the track bar alone, my JL rides and handles nice and tight. All the extra components are just icing on the cake.

    LOL! I have the heater, I just need to install it. I have one of those torpedo heaters too and it works great - just super noisy.

    The video that doubletap posted was all I needed to know that I wanted one of these.

    On the JL? There is no clamp like there was on a JK. The steering stabilizer mounts to the axle near the FAD and then on the TRE on the tie-rod.

    My bad. I meant for the JK. Thanks Eddie.

    JL JOURNAL : Synergy Front Track Bar Reinforcement & Sector Shaft Brace INSTALL

    Seems like a Solid Upgrade for both the JK & JL. Even just the bracket alone would be helpful. I need to decide on the sector brace or a big bore. Cool Video!

    Great install video, think im going to try one of these out. Still have a bit of a dead feeling in steering with the 37s. Was cold this past weekend, good day to use the overalls I see instead of the normal shorts you have on..

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.
