    Looking forward to following your build!

    Thanks! I must admit that my original plan of 33's to 35's was altered by watching you big boys play...I felt like an 8yo little boy who wanted to ride with his cool 16yo brother but mom wouldnt allow it

    p.s. My buddy lives in scottsdale and we went hiking up the camelback mountain. Makes me eager to hit up some of the trails you guys have in AZ, once I'm all built up!!!

    I know what you mean, my JK was only supposed to be a stock rubicon that was for occasional camping trips.....I changed plans and steered off on to a new course after my first wheeling trip. I have never looked back, have no regrets

    If you are coming to do some wheeling out here, I would advise doing it Oct-May, unless its in the Flagstaff, Sedona, Payson (higher elevations) areas. Just give a heads up, and hopefully I am not overseas or on the road with work, I would be in for wheeling!

    Last time i was out there was in early june 2 years ago. Golfing 18 holes in that sun, reaching 110*, was INSANE! Once I'm built and make a trip, I will be sure to give you a shout!

    Yeah, I would wait til later in the year, as unfortunately a lot of the areas around Phoenix are on fire restrcitions and some of them to the point of limiting vehicle access.

    Dynatrac Visit

    Made a stop yesterday in my "research" for the 1-ton axles I am going to use. That visit was at a little shop some of you guys might have heard of called Dynatrac.

    I had spoke to Steve in the past and he is a really nice guy. On this visit, Steve was out of town on an off road trip and, I spoke with Dan Seldon. He is a great guy as well. I was there and we just chatted for a ccouple hours about all things off road. This guy knows his stuff and really personable.

    On both occurences I never felt any pressure to buy. Never have they tried to push any expensive upgrades on me that I didnt need. Dan actually gave me recommendations of "not needing" some upgrades for my purpose and told me to save that for other upgrades more suitable.

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.
