    Jorge's Spartan Build Thread

    Then came the Warn Bumper and Winch

    Nice. Did you buy the 10th AE hood used or buy it from Mopar?

    Directly from Mopar, The Dealership I bought the Jeep is owned by a customer of mine (I'm in IT) so I have a pretty good discount on Parts

    Otherwise I imagine it isn't cheap. That's the only part of the 10AE I would love to have. It's a great looking hood.

    I went to a local AEV dealer, and asked for price on the AEV Hood, and they said $1,100 unpainted, then went to my favorite Off road store and they told me $1,000 special ordered for me, Went to the Dealer after looking up the Part #s and got a number, after that took it to the VP of sales and he called and told them to give me the Employee pricing, Hood Plus louvers came out to $800 including tax, the rest of the parts they just swapped from the original hood...

    Also went to the Mopar Store Directly, they asked for $950 + Tax...

    The Spartan finally got some new shoes, I admit I did try and get the most out of the OEM tires, but after a slashed sidewall on the last two trips, it was time to take a hit and move to some better MT rubber

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.
