    So, I've got 17X9 Level 8 Bully Pro wheels (which claim to have an extra lip to help secure the tire on the rim). I currently run BFG KM-2 35X12.5 tires at 15 psi, on some pretty gnarly trails, and...

    STT Pro 37s Load Range D or E

    I'm moving from my 35" KM2s to 37" STT Pros. I'm inclined to go to the 13.50x17 because it is Load Range E (likely a stronger sidewall) but am concerned that the ride will be too stiff for my 2014...

    Good info on the packaging. These (the Timken Unit Bearings from Rock Auto) have the packaging as shown for the genuine parts. That makes me feel a little better.

    Plugged Zerk

    I had a zerk that wouldn't take grease on one of my Prosteer Ball Joints. Took a nail with a sharp point and poked the little ball until it moved down. No problem taking grease after that.

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.
