    I love your tack bar and stabilizer mount I was wanting to make my own also. Made my own high lift mount. Almost free, already had the metal.

    Nice work!

    Made my own trail doors with homemade paracord limiting straps and plan on making my own front bumper...

    Also made a bunch of paracord grab handles...which I can't seem to find any pictures of. Other than mounting tires on the wheels, all labor and maintenance is done by me at home and I love it!

    Both the doors and the high lift mount turned out great.

Here is a couple pictures of a front track bar bracket I built and a bumper I am working on. I will be building rock slides next.Attachment 171440Attachment 171441Attachment 171442Attachment 171443Attachment 171444Attachment 171445Attachment 171446
    I may hit you up when I start brainstorming on my front bumper plans. Looks great! And, thanks. The doors were my first big project I planned and built.

    Is your tire carrier tied into your hitch? I like it!

    Nice! Does that bolt on with the factory hinge?

    Thanks. It does. The only other way to do it on a WJ is buy or build a new bumper which I didn't want to deal with. Maybe in the future. I used a hitch extender to bring it out more then built off of that. The main tube is gusseted underneath. Doesn't move or rattle at all, so I'm good with it.

    For sure. Feel free to message any time, I will help you out the best I can. Your doors turned out awesome and look high quality. I would rock them.

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.
