    Yeah I been curious on what some of the rigs are running. I sometimes see in videos a white GPS antennae similar to what I used to have on my fishing boat. Are people running Lowrance systems in their Jeeps?!?

    Sorry for a dumb newbie question. Is the factory unit no good off road. I am looking at doing a 13 rubi and thought the high end unit handled that.

    I have seen people that are running the Lowrance Baja series unit but those are quite a bit out of my price range

    I removed mine outta my Rubicon and sold it for more than a nice Aftermarket in dashGPS unit that uses my Garmin Lifetime Maps that I pay one time fee.

    The Garmin GPSMAP 60 series is quite popular with me and my friends. Though the Garmin Montana looks to be the next step (future upgrade). Basically the same thing, but touch screen and way bigger display.

    on our old 2007, we are using the Jeep Trail Guide which is the same thing as the old Garmin Quest 2. it is slow and has a hard time picking up satalites but, when it's working, it's a great GPS. i only wish that garmin/jeep offered something similar but more up to date and faster.

    on our 2012, i find that i use my iphone with gaia app more and more and have been quite happy with 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.
