    First 'official' mod was before it left the dealership, swapped the Fuel Trophy wheels and BFG All Terrains from my '13 2 door. Purely by accident, the wheels are damn near color matched.

    That is a sharp rig. I dig the factory half doors.
    Congrats on the new ride

    Wired up the KC Apollo lights on Olympic windshield brackets, hooked it all up to the Daystar Lower dash switch panel. I'm surprised how well the grain matches the factory interior, but the color is not an 'exact' match. Close enough you have to really look to tell though.

    Ill add some pics of the lights when it stops freaking raining here!

    And Wednesday of this week the second batch of parts came in. I saw Brown Santa try to lift the sliders out and his eyes almost bugged out of his head, so he got his dolly out.

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.
