    Wave from Central Texas

    Howdy all! My name is Jason and bought my first Jeep since my high school '81 CJ last year. I bought a 2013 White JK Unlimited Rubicon and have since taken it multiple times to Hidden Falls where I met my first jeep "family", the Hill Country Crawlers, who were kind enough to show me the ropes of crawling, climbing, and banging more things than I could imagine. In one day, I learned about locking my hubs, sway bar disconnects, and how well the factory skid plates hold up against the rocks at Hidden Falls.

    Mods on my Jeep are:
    - Ace Mfg. Rock Sliders (allowing me to keep my Rubi Rails)
    - Rock Krawler 3.5" Flex System (from River City Offroad)
    - Bilstein 5100 Shocks

    Plans:
    - Upgrade tires and wheels (35x12.5x18/18"x9")
    - Rock Krawler Tie Rod
    - Rock Krawler Drag Link
    - 5.38 Gears

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Thanks for all the "welcomes"! I was waiting to complete my Rock Krawler 3.5" lift to post a picture, but that'll likely be late tonight so I can add new ones tomorrow. As for now, here are some pics from running around my property and driving at Hidden Falls

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.
