    From Sahara to monster

    I've been a member of the forum for a while and I'm just now getting around to my build thread. I don't have as many pics as id like to of the build along the way so some may have been seen in other threads.
    I started out with a brand new black 2012 JKUS. It's my first jeep. I've always wanted to go fast like Ricky bobby but it gets you into to much trouble. So I decided to go off road instead.
    I began by getting to know my jeep. What I wanted to do with it and what it was capable of.

    This lasted for a few months. Then we went into phase one. This consisted of, stubby the front bumper, synergy coilover setup front and rear with fox shocks, magnaflow exhaust, front anti rock, posion spyder brawler knocker sliders and 285/75/17 toyos on stock wheels. It was a sleeper jeep for sure.

    As we went along I added a cb and some misc things like a viair compressor and staun deflators.

    I added a poison spyder brawler lite stinger which I bed lined at work.

    Next phase I added in fox bump stops and the evo tire carrier.

    Well this lead to the "final" phase of my build here. So my stock wheel would not fit on the tire carrier. I knew I wanted slabs. But what's the point of slabs since I wanted 37's? And I couldn't do 37's without re gearing. And I wasn't gonna re gear without adding lockers also. And I wasn't gonna add all that to a Dana 30 axle might as well get a pro rock 44 right?! So....

    Also have rigid duallys for reverse lights and fog lights as you can see.

    One of my favorite upgrades I did. Spod. Can't say enough about it.

    Needed a compressor for the lockers and to air up those big ass 37's

    I am sure there is more. It's been on plenty of trips (rubicon later this year and Moab next). I live in San Diego and I am always willing to hit the trails. It's been a fun/ stressful build and it never ends. I can't say enough not to rush into your build. I bought many things over and would do a lot differently if I could do it again (DTD). I will update more as it comes up.

    Beautiful rig! How do you like the PR44's? I was thinking of picking up a front 44 in the future.

    Thanks. I only have a PR44 in the front. The rear is just a diff cover on the stock 44. Had to keep it uniform. It has only been on a week so i will update more after this weekend when I break it in. But you can tell the difference in the housing right away.

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.
