    Trailer frame1.pnguntitled.pngFirst thing we wanted to do was get rid of the old frame. The utility body was held on to that with 3- 1/4" self tapping screws.
    Took it off, cleaned up old rust and removed old flooring.

    Then we built two frames, One for the floor, and then a heavy duty trailer frame.

    ready to roll1.jpgtrailer 1.jpgrear bumper hitch.jpgMounted axle , wheels, and added modified hitch, rear hitch on back of trailer. Hooked it up to the jeep and was unhappy with the axle position. So will move it back a couple of inches. Then sand prep for painting next week.


    Next will be Wood plank floors, Pipe rack, to mount hard top on, racks to mount doors on, 20-25 gallon water tank with pump, small generator, and welder.

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.
