So I just bought a 2015 jeep JKU hard rock and wanted to lift my jeep the right way. My friend told me the best way is to learn from others mistakes and to join this forum. I've used this forum for the past 4 months for advise with my build. I got lots for great advice from many members. I've bought a few things though members on this site as well. After reading how sensitive you guys were in the northridge winch give a way I'm sure glad I didn't write a review for a chance win even though a did learned about northridge via this website and spent over $7,000 dollars with them since December 2014. I'm very thankful for this forum. I will also say I have never asked for any freebies. I have a job that supports my hobbies. I feel people get scrutinized very quickly if you don't follow the proper steps when joining this forum. I've recently Found out there is a section in the forum called give us a wave. I never knew about this (I take this is my first strike 1). I also came across a forum topic with a zero.com promo for a winch of which I was and still am In the market to buy one and apparently me asking about the next time the next promo maybe be raised red flags (my strike 2). So before I become black balled on this forum will you guys tell me what else I'm doing wrong so I don't look like some jackass that members like to call out so quickly!?! Thanks for the feedback.

Don't make a thread about "how sensitive we are here" and how we "scrutinize very quickly" and just be a normal person looking to get advice and give it. But be prepared to back up your claims because if you're full of shit you'll get called out on it.

Summary: Don't be a douche!

Wow that was quite a rant. How about this:

1. Read the rules
2. Don't be sensitive
3. Enjoy the forum but know it's a privately owned and a privelage

I have to wonder if this thread is your way of getting folks to chime in and you can get your sensitive feelings hurt. I hope I'm wrong.

I'm not being a douche.... I just feel like it's easy to get judged. I'm trying to learn more about this forum so I can contribute as much a possible. Your response is exactly what I'm talking about. I'm asking for help to learn how the forum works and I'm told not to be a douche.... Just kind of rude if you ask me.

Honestly the basic things you can do is really just follow the rules and be an active and positive member of the community.

This Wayalife community is unlike any other around for a reason. We may not have the massive member numbers that some of the other forums have but honestly there's a reason for that. This is a community that Eddie and Cindy have created for all of us to enjoy and share in and rightfully so, they want to make sure that those in the community are the kind of members that fall in line with what Wayalife is all about.

Wayalife is a large nationwide group of likeminded individuals who really love the sprit of Jeeping and what it stands for.

If you notice, those that have been called out are usually those who don't follow the rules or are those who come on here to stir up and start drama.

Bottom line, is if you're here for the right reasons and to be a part of the Wayalife community then great, if not then move along and find the community that best suits your goals and lifestyle. The worst thing you can do is stick around if it's not a good fit and end up being as wanted as a fart in a spacesuit

Don't worry, if you'd have done something that warranted an ass ripping then you would have been called out on it and ripped.

Not 100% sure but this thread (especially with the title you selected) may move you up in line for a ripping.

A better title would have been, "how do I not become a target" or better yet, post up no thread and just read and follow the rules

Well, congrats. You kind of made yourself look worse than those asshats. You started a thread about putting down this forum and all its members.

The point, in part, of the winch giveaway is to recognize the support of the forum members. What happened was a bunch of folks got wind of it on the Internet and joined here ONLY to win a winch. They have/had no desire to contribute to this forum. We, the members, called there selfish asses out for it. And for the record, it wasn't in the winch thread, it was in the Free Shit thread, which was fucking brilliant and hilarious at the same time.

So coming full circle, if you can't understand the family environment here and why the members treat forum trolls and Wayalife badgers the way we do, then perhaps you haven't really wanted to be part of family. We all pick on each other like brothers and sisters. But those same people are the first to lend a helping hand, invite folks over a BBQ and give valuable advice.

It's more than a Jeep, it's a Wayalife!!

For once I'm actually early to one of these. But I don't think starting a thread that indirectly bashes the people on the forum is really in your favor. I'm new to wayalife but I'm not new to forums, I've been using them sense I was 13 for various hobbies and interest (started with a Test Drive Unlimited Forum back in like 2006). I've been banned from places and made a fool outta myself on other forums for things I thought were totally innocent, but one thing I learned quickly is that starting a thread specifically for talking about how you don't like the forum or an aspect of the forum typically doesn't go in the favor of the OP.

Dude, Seriously? If you NEED to ask how to behave, then why even bother. What you need to do is go to your local sporting goods store and see if you can get some duck feathers and some gator skin.

You are going about it all wrong. First thing is act like you are content with what you have and then take her out wheeling. For instance if you want to get bigger tires then take the line that you will drag or get hung up. Once you get hung up make a comment like "if we had 35's we would not get hung up". This will also work for getting a lift as well. Second trick is to take her someplace that has some built up Jeeps and show her how they look and make comments like "our Jeep can look just like that". Once the hints have been dropped start a build plan on how and you want to proceed. I have found with my wife that if it is written on paper with a time line she is more receptive. Bottom line if you make the mods her idea chances are you will get better reception. Whatever you do, do not leave catalogs open with ideas it will just back fire.

Good luck.

Some good stuff here will. Many of which I already follow. As you noted with the catalog, Never discuss the actual costs of any specific item, unless directly asked. And make sure you save a little extra to buy something nice for the Mrs. 😉👍😂

X2!!! :thumb: :thumb: This for that type deal. You spend a good chunk of change on jeep parts, buy her some new shoes or a purse, all parties will be happy in the household.

You are going about it all wrong. First thing is act like you are content with what you have and then take her out wheeling. For instance if you want to get bigger tires then take the line that you will drag or get hung up. Once you get hung up make a comment like "if we had 35's we would not get hung up". This will also work for getting a lift as well. Second trick is to take her someplace that has some built up Jeeps and show her how they look and make comments like "our Jeep can look just like that". Once the hints have been dropped start a build plan on how and you want to proceed. I have found with my wife that if it is written on paper with a time line she is more receptive. Bottom line if you make the mods her idea chances are you will get better reception. Whatever you do, do not leave catalogs open with ideas it will just back fire.

Good luck.

^^^ exactly this ^^^ We got our new JK as my wife's DD so I didn't want to highly modify it so I went with 2.5 inch lift and 33's but she 'wouldn't drive it until it looked cooler', she said 'I want a bumper and a winch and lights...' so I DID ! Then we went to Moab a couple of times and we started out on easier trails and all is good until we moved up the trail rating each time and until we couldn't make up the two and three foot ledges with the same high centering problem and the rigs in front of us with 35 and 37's were making it.... the sweet words out of her mouth were "We need more lift and bigger tires or we're not coming back"...EVO enforcer is on order and she is pricing 37's !!!!:thumb::clap2::2thumbsup::applaudit:

Lol, Mrs Jags told my wife how to hide clothes purchases from her husband. She said the same thing you did!

She told her to say, oh I've had that for awhile. I've just never worn it.

Next time you buy a part, tell her you have had it for awhile, you just haven't had the time to install it.

IDK...how about you just man the fuck up and buy what you want?

Having to hide stuff from your SO or having to buy them something too is a fool's play.

Yep. This causes problems between the wife and I. I would always ask her if it was ok to buy stuff to make sure it wasn't going to hurt us financially. She use to not return the favor and racked up some credit card debit that I didn't know about. Now we don't have any credit cards and we talk about a lot of stuff money wise. Not little crap like grabbing lunch or stopping and getting a pop or something. Over $100 and we better be talking though.

That'd be fucking hilarious if true. That's a long running joke in my fam starting with my mom and dad. We tell that same story all the time and my wife pulls that line all the time. I honestly don't care what my wife buys and she doesn't really care what I buy. We still even have separate bank accounts.

I surprised the wife with a roll cage, that she now wants installed cause its taking up garage space. Wanting to install and time to install are two different things. I need an eighth day of the week.

Talk about going full retard on a few areas here.

Wives wanting parts installed so they get the garage space back. LOL!!

Keep your garage an organized mess with no less than 3 projects going at any one time. Gasoline containers, tool boxes and a drain pan with old ATF in different strategically placed corners or areas of easy access.
Never and I mean never give in on garage space. It will start with a small box or two. Next thing you know it's over run with Xmas junk, clothes, and shoes.
The moment you give in on that you might as well move and try again.

Ha. The box is the least of things taking up space. At one point I actually thought I'd park the jeep in there. Lol.
