    EAST Meets WEST: Prep thread

    Since we have such a large group going to the East meets West trip, I figure we should have a thread for everyone to post up what they have to prep/what’s being done and such as we go!


    I’ll start with this: mine is going in to Bubba soon to get the rear diff taken care of and lockers working. Also need to get my other wheels put on. (My old wheels, but painted. Went to JL rubi wheels and can’t stand them so I’m going back)

    Ddays was thoughtful enough to dig up some threads and provide the following:
    Hopefully, everyone going on the trip already has the basics covered, but if not, here are a couple good threads for some ideas for spares and tools that you may want to bring along.

    That’s good for at least 10hp each. Plus I’m sure they’ll make those tires look like 40s some how

    Pretty loaded question. In the middle of axles and 40s, ARB, hydro, etc... Once that’s all done it’s shake down time for a few runs and then back under the knife for suspension setup depending what I decide. You know, the little things.

    Well, where to start.

    Fusion 4x4 axles
    Method wheels
    Nitto 40” trail grapplers
    Nemesis fenders
    J8 Brake booster
    Bumper chops and a whole lot of cutting

    That should take me thru February. We’ll see what March and April have to bring. But it’s all worth it!

    Hopefully get some of my parts pile installed.
    Rock Hard trans crossmember
    Front big brake kit
    PSC steering box

    Have both lockers working
    Get my rear King shocks rebuilt and installed
    Add a real CB to replace the Cobra 75

    To even start on this, I need to get into my garage, replace the non working door, make room to work on the Jeep

    Oh, and try not to rear up anything else before this trip.

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.
