    2014 SEMA Daystar 1958 Jeep FC170 Forward Control Pick-Up Truck on Tracks

    Without question, the beautifully restored 1958 Jeep FC170 or, "forward control" pick-up truck on cat tracks that Daystar brought out to the 2014 SEMA Show was by far one of the prettiest I have ever seen bar none. While I'm not a real fan of the tracks, the candy apple green metallic paint and lacquered wood bed were really fine touches. For those of you who are fans of old iron, feast your eyes on this gem...

    No longer a Jeep. Now a work of art.

    Wow, that is absolutely gorgeous! I would have loved to have seen it on some vintage steelies instead of tracks though. This is probably the best looking FC I have ever seen.

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.
