    I'm picking up a new control box tonight and will be running the trigger wire directly to the fuse box using a fuse splice (to the heated seat location). Hopefully it was just a bad box; will update once it's installed.

    Also picking up some used Smittybilt XRC fender flares tonight so I'll post photos of those later on as well.

    Until then, Jeep on!
    That’s weird.... maybe the neighbors kid downloaded the app and he’s messin with ya... lol... hope you get that resolved.

    Well I switched out with a new Trigger Controller but had the same problem - people kept flashing their brights and then I realized the lightbar turned on. I'll be swapping out with the 6-rocker switch system from Rough Country next month; decided to get away from all the bluetooth options and run wires direct.

    The Trigger was a neat design, just didn't work for me (checked wiring/re-checked wiring/checked connections).

    I decided against that system for fear of that exact issue. Good idea, but nothing more reliable than a good one fashioned hard-wire. Sorry you had issues. 🍻

    Definitely worth a shot to see how it worked, just not for me. Hard-wire it is!

    I'll be putting some new shocks in this weekend; went with the Rocksports through MetalCloak. I've heard good things about this for a budget shock so I figured I'd try them out and get rid of the Rough Country ones that are in there now. These were a hand-me-down when I wanted to change out the Bilsteins.

    A buddy just opened a shop here in Green Bay so it will be nice to work indoors on a lift

    There's no topping being able to work on your Jeep in those conditions.

    Spent some time Saturday putting 10+ coats of paint on the new red RockSport shocks along with testing the travel out. At full flex, I'm at 33" between the floor and bottom of tire. And there's an axle seal that needs to be replaced as well

    We then went out near Lakewood on Sunday to play around a bit. Ends up new u-joints are needed.

    Ordered new axle seals, u-joints, and EVO rear shock skids this week for another shop day Saturday. With the snow starting to fall, 4WD has been engaged a few times. I've been getting some grinding/ticking noise while in 4WD at slower speeds. We're going to changeout the u-joints and possibly the front driveshaft to try pinpointing the problem. Will do a transfer case fluid change also while it's on the lift.

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.
