    Damn, that looks nice. Seems like a spectacular turn around too! I plan on putting my set on order in a little over a year.

    You would still fit on it, just on the rails instead of the floor🤣🤣

    Thanks! Appreciate the feedback! The wheels are KMC Grenades... still some sorting to do on shock down travel, bump steer and tire pressures. We’ll take another look at the links, they’re synergy quick connects, so all the flex/check was done with them disco’d.

    Those are beefy looking. Did you have to upgrade you brake master cylinder to work with the UD60 brakes?

    Yes. Installed the Mopar booster and master. Brakes are pretty amazing now!

    Ha!! Waiting for that one.

    A realistic combination of $$$ budget and unworthiness. Just the axles and new wheels/37” tires created enough ripple effect to beat my wallet up pretty good. I can’t wait to get out and use it... probably hit Hollister early next week for test and tune.

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.
