    How's this? It's 1/4" steel if I remember right. Then a spray can of bedliner did a good enough job to blend it. Or you can buy AEVs paint at $20 a can.

    How are you waving to them? Throwing the old V from the steering wheel or the Forrest Gump hand flail out the window?

    I added the dewalt dcf899 to my kit 2 years ago. It’s pretty beast. Setting 2 puts my lugs right about 100ft lbs. Milwaukee just released the 2767 which claims 1400ftlbs breaking torque.

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.
