    The last run we got to do with our good friend Adam while he was visiting us here in Northern Nevada, was one up a trail just east of Reno and known as, Bronco Canyon. As luck would have it, Trail Bud and getoverit (Russ and Naomi) were both able to join us as well as an unexpected guest all the way from Oregon, JK_b/c_yolo (Bobbie). Here are just a few pics from all the fun we had out on the trail. I would have taken more but I was doing most of the driving this day and Cindy was doing some filming. Still, I hope you enjoy what I was able to take.

    Secret Canyon is just one of the many awesome trails that we have up here in Northern Nevada and really, it's trails like this that make us love living here. Close to town, short enough to do in a day and yet, hard enough to be a real challenge and of course, a ton of fun. While our good friend Adam was up here visiting us earlier in the week, we decided to do a run up this awesome trail and here are some photos from our day out on this Secret trail.

    Over the weekend, our good friend Adam (OverlanderJK) came up to Camp WAYALIFE to get away from the hustle and bustle of SoCal living and spend a few days relaxing and wheeling with us up here in beautiful Northern Nevada. While he was up here, he agreed to let us use his 2-door JK to install a set of new Rock Krawler Triple Rate coils that had been sent out to us a while back for testing. To help understand what we would be comparing them to, Adam was running a set of TeraFlex 3" coils that yielded over 4" of lift on his 2-door JK and had paired them up with a set of new Rancho RS5000X shocks. For our purposes, we would only be swapping out the coils and keeping everything else exactly the same so that we could get an apples to apples comparison. Our goal was to get a lower ride height, one that would still offer the same amount of droop without unseating a coil and with any luck, obtain a softer ride as well. Below are some photos of the initial testing we did with the existing TeraFlex coils, the installation of the new Rock Krawler coils and then some more testing out on Prison Hill.

    There are a lot of things that Cindy and I love about the all new 2015 Jeep BU Renegade including the way it looks, its sub-compact size, significant fuel economy, stylish interior, great sound system and super comfortable ride. However, Cindy and I would never have bought ours if we didn't look at it as being first and foremost, a real Jeep and one that we could take off-road. Sure, the Renegade is no Wrangler but I don't think Jeep ever intended it to be and really, for our purposes, we don't need it to be. That being said, one of the very first things we wanted to do after getting Renny, our Red Renegade, was to get it out on the dirt and as soon as possible.

    With less than 600 miles on the odometer, most of which was a result of driving our brand new Jeep Renegade home from Las Vegas the week before, Cindy and I packed up bags and headed out into the middle of nowhere Nevada to clock in some well needed exploring time in areas we have never been before. The plan was to make a big loop down to the town of Tonopah and back while making stops at old ghost towns, cemeteries, mines and even a dinosaur dig site containing the fossils remains of Ichthyosaurs. Along the way, we would rack up as many miles as we could on dirt and even put our bone stock Jeep Renegade to the test on some rougher terrain. The photos below our from our very first and epic 580 mile trip and I hope you enjoy them.

    With the addition of Renny the Red Renegade into the WAYALIFE family, Cindy and I thought it would only be appropriate to take a new 2015 family portrait. From left to right and newest to oldest, we have our new 2015 Colorado Red Jeep BU Renegade known as Renny, our 2012 Dozer Yellow Jeep JK Rubicon Unlimited know nas Rubicat, our 2007 Stone White Jeep JK Rubicon Unlimited known as Moby, our 1997 Stone White Jeep XJ Cherokee known as Plan-C and last but not least, the oldest member of the family, our 1972 Blue and White J2000 Jeep Truck known as Rusty.

    I had originally posted this up on our sister site, www.ToasterJeep.com but being that our new Jeep Renegade is just as much a part of our WAYALIFE as any of our Jeeps, I thought I should post it up here as well. Having said that...

    Cindy and I have been wanting an all new 2015 Jeep BU Renegade since we first heard about the prospect of them becoming a reality well over two years ago. During that time, we had been patiently waiting for them to be released and for a time, it almost seemed like it was never going to happen. Well, just when we were about to give up on ever getting one, they FINALLY made it over to U.S. showrooms and after dealing with a few misfires, we finally found what we were looking for at Sahara Jeep in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Unlike Tobin Prestige, a dealership in Las Vegas who wanted to stick it to me for more than $2,000 over MSRP on a Trailhawk that had ZERO options and claiming they had the "only" Renegade in the State of Nevada or Lithia Jeep in Reno who's idea of Costco Membership special pricing to mean MSRP, Sahara Jeep had an up front, "no-haggle" price and it was a real deal. While Cindy and I had originally wanted an Alpine White Trailhawk with MySky, there simply was nothing available for 800 miles and ordering one would have taken well over 4 months to get, or so we were told. Colorado Red was our second choice and what we did like about the one Sahara Jeep had was that it came with everything else we wanted minus the color and MySky. After giving it a lot of thought and coming to terms with the fact that we will be running a roof rack with this Jeep, we figured we could make this work. Needless to say, I made a call, got talking to Harold Elam, Jr. and got the ball rolling.
