    Wow I’ve never seen someone stuff tie rod ends into control arm brackets like that. You’ve got some OG techniques, my friend. Those are some bad ass ol jeeps.

    Huh, never seen TRE's on control arms either. How long do you expect them to hold up? Have you done this before?

    Hopefully just long enough to get in front of him before they let loose. I’ve seen some weird shit. TREs as rod ends is pretty high up on the list now. My only hope is that they are for some sort of mock up?

    Lol I was thinking the same thing. Guess you don’t have to throw away your bent tie rods anymore. Just cut them in half and you have two control arms.

    I applaud the outside of the box thinking and fabrication work but I don't think those are going to be strong enough.

    They have been on the Jeep since 2006 and never broke. And its wheeled pretty hard. We found them on a Heavy Race Jeep back in early 2000s.

    Really surprised. These are made for Big Rigs, Semi Trucks. Trucks that legally haul 80,000lbs or 40 tons up and down our highways.

    Guys around here have been running them on huge Jeeps with big power for probably 20yrs.

    I thought those looked pretty big and beefy.

    The Dana 70 housing makes them look smaller than they really are.

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.
