    i would like to ad something.

    once you have accessed the damage to man and machine and before you even attempt to right your rolled rig make sure the parking brake is firmly set and the transmission is in park. or in first for a stick shift.

    i was nearly run over by a vehicle when gravity took over and all fours where back on terra firma. the vehicle made a dash for downhill and i can tell you that adrenalin is brown and makes stripes in your undies

    True. Thanks and very good call, yes I did leave that out. Nothing worse than successful recovering your rig only to watch it roll back to the trail head on its own (and that is best case scenario )

    Very good info - though I hope I never need it.
    No one plans to roll - but good to be prepared.

    Eddie on one of your videos you helped someone in a white JKU on one of your trips. Was that the Rubicon?
    DID I MENTION MY RIG IS FOR SALE?

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.
