    Joshua's lil piece of this WAYALIFE

    So I have finally got some good parts installed and somewhat good stories to share.
    With that...Here is my budget build thread and my thoughts along the way. Why a budget build? I want to go on trails now but can't afford some of the more allowing equipment to get me to some of the places. So, I am getting things to get me by for awhile. I also don't know if I will be keeping this Jeep or trading it in in the near future for a Rubicon or maybe the next gen when they come out. All I do know is, I am having a blast with this one until that day comes, if it ever does. After one really good run up Miller Trail in Lockwood Valley I learned a lot about my Jeep and what I will need. I won't go in to it here, I will add posts and pictures of things along with my descriptions for why or how and maybe a review or two. Some pictures will be on the forum in one place or another as I don't take enough pictures of the Jeep so I am sorry for that, I will be recycling some of the pictures for this thread and maybe vice versa. Thanks for looking in and always feel free to share your thoughts or opinions or invite me somewhere!
    Here are a couple pictures when I first brought her home

    Rubicon Tires and Rock Rails

    First upgrades besides debadging was to get some Rubicon take-offs. I missed a run over Miller because the lack of protection and mall crawler tires that came on my Sport. After some digging around I found a fellow WAYALIFE'er that his sale thread got buried. I lucked out and berry2k was nice enough to let me come over and gave me a really good deal on his old rock rails. After chatting a bit and drooling over his rig, he persuaded me with another good deal on his wheels/tires! Thank you berry2k they have treated me great!

    First outing: Ballinger Canyon OHV

    After my buddy got a new Hero3 Black Edition and wanting to learn how to use it I decided to scratch the itch of poppin my Jeeps cherry. Not a lot of pictures and really only two good ones. We were just out having fun and got more video that I honestly need to edit and get on YouTube. Didn't disconnect this time.

    Spidertrax & Rigid Duallys/Rugged Ridge Windshield Bracket

    Sniffin around on the sale thread I came across what I thought was a good deal on some used wheel spacers and lights. Thank you again Bigblock! I would like to add that I wasn't happy with the diffused lens, researched and couldn't find lens replacements for sale. I called up Rigid Industries and they are now on their way to them to have the lens swapped out. They actually answer their phones and provide great customer service. $35 each to replace the lens and they will keep honoring their great warranty and ship them back to me free of charge.
    So my brother and I made the trip down to meet Bigblock and I edited him out of the picture as I don't have his consent...his rig is a beast!

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.
