    Getting Closer

    In an article below, the Jeep CEO, Mike Manley makes one of the strongest statements yet that I've read for a real push on the Jeep truck.

    At this point, it seems a "truck" of some point is inevitable, just what and when.

    LOL!! I so want to believe this... really want to believe this. However, I've been hearing this same song and dance over the last 10 years. Still, it is fun to dream.

    I think what's maybe makes this a reality this time is FCA seeing the current hot hand and profits with Jeep. They have set some lofty goals for further increasing sales in the next 3-5 years. To meet those goals, the Renegade is going to be a big part of that push, but they will also need a few other models to increase their lineup and demographic exposure.

    This makes me believe that a "truck" is coming this time, but that it could quite possibly not be wrangler based and therefore not be what a lot of the faithful have been waiting quite some time for.

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.
