    Any extra I'll get some truck-lite LEDs.

    Going back in time a bit, after today's installs phase one of Onyx's build has been completed. And I must say, I'm greatly please with the results!

    Met up with KalebD today and got Onyx and NightCrawler together for some work on our Jeeps. I had some extra Rubicon springs from PepeLucas. I didn't have use for them, so we decided to put them on NightCrawler. We also did some work to Onyx, installing Synergy Front 3/4 coil spacers(to compensate for the weight of the winch) ARB Shackles, and a Smittybilt XRC 9500k winch.

    Now most of you will ask why I went with this winch. Yes, it's made in China, and yes, it's Smittybilt. But out of the three in my price range(Viper, Quadratec, Smittybilt) this one had the highest rated winch motor and got the best reviews. And I can also say now that after a few test runs, this winch will pull like crazy.

    And another thing, due to a missing part from EVO for the fairlead, I wasn't able to get the fairlead installed. Spoke with Drew though, and he fixed me up, so hopefully I'll have one soon. Until then, I just won't be using it.

    Before we threw on the winch, we decided to take a picture of Onyx with just the Synergy spacers and EVO plush rides. This combo together results in about a 2.5 inch lift , it was huge.

    A shot of NightCrawler with his rubicon front springs and his new TrekTop NX. All said and done, we netted about a half an inch with the different coils.

    And a shot of Onyx with yes, Her new hardtop. I had been considering making the switch back to a hardtop for awhile now, and KalebD came over okay with making a trade.

    All in all, a great day of modifying and playing with our Jeeps. Nothing better! The small amount I've tried to winch just to test the motor and connections, it works great and I can't wait to get out and test it even more. Hopefully I'll be able to get the fairlead mounted soon!
    Had a great time today man! Got alot done and thanks a ton for the springs I think I'm really going to like them and I don't know if you'll be able to have the top back
    Besides the hard top looks so much better on yours lol!! Look forward to the next install day! Guess I'll have to order some parts now

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.
