    Easy install and in our opinion looks pretty darn cool. Ask the wife, she'll give you a different answer. hahaha. She liked the old bumper and light bar (seen in 2nd picture)

    This weekends project includes a factory Matte flat black grille and a dual steering stabililzer set up. More good bonding time with my son just like my dad used to do with me. You can't beat it.

    Hope you enjoy

    How much weight are you towing there? I am thinking of towing a small boat and trailer about 3200lbs. with a '13 JKU 3.6L. 6spd. Is that feasible? Your thoughts? Thank you.

    If you have the Max Tow Package you would be fine and probably be OK even without it.

    I just towed my boat, about 4000 lbs total weight, today for the first time.

    My 2 door has the Max Tow and only rated to 2000 lbs total.

    It did fair. I only had to go a few miles at 30 mph. I would not use my JK for any long hauls.

    Did you buy a special piece for the A-Pillar to mount the switches in or modify the existing stock piece?

    Edit: I found the A-pillars on the site.. Thanks for the link.

    Yeah it's the rugged ridge a pillar pod, just leave a note on the order I you want them etched for horizontal install. Looks pretty sexy!

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.
