    Wave from Washington State

    Hey guys, giving a wave from Snoqualmie WA. Just picked up a 2015 JKU Sport, base model, so I have a ton of work to do! I'm sure I'll have tons of questions, so thank you for a great place to chat it up and learn. My wife and I are both teachers, so the build may be a bit...slow!

    Welcome to the WAYALIFE.

    The best part about a slow build is you can do a lot of research to find exactly what you want. One mod I have seen people do is to purchase Rubicon take off wheels which are a mud terrain tire and slightly taller wheel than the stock ones.

    As for lifts I recommend finding some local Jeepers with different lifts and take a ride to see what you like as opposed to what others will recommend. Ride is 100% subjective. For me I like a soft ride both on and off road that is why I went with the 3 in EVO Plush Ride Coils and paired them with Rancho RS9000 XL adjustable shocks. I know several on the forum who have done this.

    Again welcome and look forward to seeing you and your Jeep progress.

    Might I also recommend the following section of the forum http://wayalife.com/showthread.php?2...ep-JK-Wrangler this will answer a lot of your questions.

    R/

    Thanks guys! Will, we got a great deal on my trade in, so the wife let me buy used Rubi wheels with the extra allotted cash. They should be here Monday! They said only 50 miles on the tires, but we will see I guess.

    I couldn't have picked a better time, as the first day I had the jeep, it snowed. Much better than the "grocery getter" I had before!

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.
