    For real though! That's the first time I've seen that video and WOW it's incredible what a well built jk can take on and I'm so glad Mel was protected through the whole thing by the quality parts that are on Evo1!

We did have a tach issue once and a temp sensor wire issue once that caused over heating but both were simple problems to track down and easy to fix. Haven't had an issue since.

    As far as MPG goes, before the motor swap, we were getting about 8-10 MPG at best with our 3.8L motor pushing our JK that weighs about 7000 lbs. and riding on 40's. Now, we average about 10-13 MPG and could easily get more if we drove slower so yeah, the fuel economy is much better and we get a lot more power to boot.
    Hey Eddie, I hope your jeep is staying cool, but if it's not you might want to consider upgrading to the Pentastar fan which Motech is now selling. After just upgrading to an LS3 myself this is what I found to be the case. I too had a powerplant and I think it was blocking a lot of the airflow to the radiator and after upgrading to the Pentastar Fan it made a big difference and allowed me to keep my winch.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've actually talked to Robbie about this and hope to make the switch soon.

    i sort of spoke too soon. The aftermarket radiator still wasn't enough, but since the Pentastar fan is slimmer we put an even bigger/thicker radiator in it's place and that seems to be working.

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.
