    2013 SEMA Rugged Ridge Old Iron Display

    Rugged Ridge really outdid themselves at the 2013 SEMA Show by bringing out the best collection of old iron I have ever seen. Seriously, they actually had an original 1941 Bantam BRC-40, a 1941 Willys MA and a 1941 Ford GP all on display! These are literally the granddaddy's of the modern Jeep - the source DNA of what we all love. Of course, this is to say nothing about the ultra rare 1943 Ford GPA or "Seep" as well as a couple of other Willys M38's. I do apologize for the lack of photos and for the quality of the ones I got. Unfortunately, the lighting in this area was terrible and I could only grab a few that were still in focus before the crowds came rushing in. Anyway, here ya go...

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! My uncle had a DUKW way back in the day, that SEEP makes me wonder if he still has it. That is one amazing collection. To put things into perspective, the Ft Jackson Military vehicle museum doesn't have that many beautiful vehicles on display. Great job to RR!!

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.
