    AZ LJ Rubi Build

    Bought this 2006 LJ Rubicon in January 2014. Flew out to Pueblo CO to pick it up. The trip there consisted of blizzards and other harsh weather, but it was worth it!

    What was installed when I bought it:

    255/85R16 KM2
    2" Spacer front/ Unknown coil lift rear (sat high in the rear)
    CB Antenna and aluminum mount
    Rubicon Express Monotube shocks








    Once I got it home (Flagstaff at the time) I swapped the stubby front bumper and winch from my other TJ to the LJ. Also swapped in an adjustable front track bar



    Later on I installed a low profile roller fairlead. Below I went to Moab with NAUJK and a few YJ guys from Jeepforum. I broke a oem fog and dented the fender on metal masher the day before


    Sometime in there before the Moab trip I also installed a Poison Spyder Steering box skid


    Also Before the Moab trip I threw in some 4" Currie Coils in the front to level the jeep out



    After all that, some RC Lower control arms went in to replace the stock arms


    Mounted a Uniden 520 from NAUJK to a dash mount from rugged ridge


    Later on Installed 1.5" Spacers and 315/75r16 Wildpeak A/Ts


    1.25" Body lift and 1"mml off my TJ



    Poison Spyder Hood Louver



    Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers installed


    And most recently after I moved to Tucson, Bestop Trektop NX






    I'm sure there is a lot more and a lot mor pictures, but this will have to do for now

    Thanks guys! So far I'm happy with the trektop. Hurricane Odile is hitting Tucson Wednesday, so lets hope it doesn't leak!

    Really liking Rotopax and I've been trying to figure out a way to mount a couple of them to my Warn tire carrier.

    The space between the carrier and tailgate is very small, but I could mount them behind the tire, each side of the tire, or against the spare

    A little while ago I installed a Ballistic Fab Rubicon d44 diff cover for the rear. They're close to my house, so I figured I'd stop by and check the place out. Nice stuff there!






    Also Purchased Poison Spyder LJ Full aluminum corners the last week. Currently of back order for about a week. Hope to receive them soon!



    Sad thing is, I commute 40-60 miles a day on the highway. Makes me want a JK with the 3.6 even more! O well, the Lj is fun

    On my second Lj rolled my first. Only reason I'd ever sell mine is if i had kids which won't happen.

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.
