    Spartacus - 1965 Jeep Gladiator J-200

    Well as of today, I am ecstatic to say that I've finally joined the crew of classic Jeep owners! I came home from the "Wayalife Rockin Rubicon Trip" to being surprised by Kim with my next project for our 2yr anniversary.

    The add from the guy that she bought it from:

    1965 JEEP GLADIATOR THRIFTSIDE J 200 4X4 Manual transmission, "three on the tree", straight six 230 ci Tornado motor, 75,000 original miles, has brand new radiator, new fuel pump, rebuilt water pump, professionally rebuilt carburetor, New stainless muffler, brand new clutch, custom Abs door panels, full tune up all belts hoses, filters, points, condenser, cap, rotor, plugs, all fluids changed or topped off, brand new 1200.00 paint job factory original paint code, brand new BFG Mud Terrain tires 31's, had the under carriage blasted, floors professionally stripped and Rhino Lined

    Very minor surface rust in the bed and some dings and dents throughout the body, but overall a beautiful truck and great SLOW restoration project. I must say, I'm one lucky fella! Huge thanks and I love you to my "Booger" Kim

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.
