    Mauser gets some EVO swag!

    Thought I would start a mini build thread for my 2014 Rubicon Unlimited nicknamed Mauser.

    When I bought the Jeep back in June of last year, I spent about 3 weeks installing the following:

    • AEV 3.5" RS Lift
    • Dynatrac ProSteer ball joints
    • AEV F/R bumpers
    • AEV tire carrier
    • JW Speaker headlights and fog lights
    • Synergy trackbar and trackbar brace
    • 35" BFG KM2s mounted on black Pintlers
    • AEV Heat Reduction Hood
    • Hot Head Liners
    • Warn 9.5cti-s winch


    Over the next 6-12 months, I hope to evolve the build to include:
    • EVO F/R Coilovers
    • 37" Nitto Trail Grapplers
    • EVO Rock Sliders & Skins
    • EVO ProTek Armor


    So far, I have installed the EVO Rock Skins and hoping to have the sliders welded on in the coming weeks.

    Here are few pictures from the skin installation:

    Holes drilled initially to 1/8" in preparation for the stepping bit:


    Taping off the pinch seam for paint:


    Wifey sanding down the pinch seam for paint while stylishly sporting a Wayalife hoodie!


    Pinch seam painted:


    Lots of nutserts! All holes were first painted with Mopar touch up paint, then each nutsert was siliconed into the hole for a little extra rust protection. Also, the Astro Pneumatic Nutsert tool was worth its weight in gold! It made installing 38 nutserts a breeze!


    Done:






    And last but not least, got the Waylife banner up!


    Thanks for looking!

    Looks awesome! Good job with the install. I'll be installing a set of skins on my white JKUR in the next few weeks as well. I'm glad to hear that the astro tool made things easy, I picked one of those up a month or so ago.

    Very nice! No joke on the Astro. After using that thing I was looking for extra places to put my nuts...erts.

    It's not even funny how much easier that tool made the install. I bet it took 10-15min to install one whole side of nutserts and that includes putting a little silicone on each one!

    Thanks, but I don't know if it go that far! There's still something to the sound of a drill boring into the sheet metal!

    I have really been enjoying the setup as is, but looking for a bit smoother of a ride and also looking to run trails like the Rubicon later this year.

    The AEV coils are pretty stiff and I have my eye on EVO coilovers. However, for the time being, before dropping some serious coin on the coilovers, I am going to wheel what I've got and find out where I can improve.

    Always up for suggestions and input though!

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.
