    Trail Raider Photo Diary/Build Thread

    I wanted to convert to "Wave" Thread to this ongoing build/photo diary thread, so here goes.

    07/07/14

    I'm Dave,("HI DAVE!!") I'm getting ready to place an order on a 2015 JKUR; this will be my first REAL jeep, and my first brand new car, couldn't think of a better one to buy! I'll be putting my 2006 Grand Cherokee up for sale as soon as I place the order, I'm holding out until 9/29 for the release of Sunset Orange Pearl, and I'll either order one that color, or order a white one depending on how I feel about the orange when I see it on Wrangler. I've always wanted a Wrangler, and have friends with them, and driven quite a few. But never one of my own! so im excited! this intro might be a little pre-mature, but hey, its coming! I can't wait!

    Over the Easter weekend, I installed a LOD signature series stubby with trail stinger and a warn powerplant 12. Currently on the hunt for factory fog lights, as the mounts for the hardrock OEM fogs are different.
    I'm not sure if I like the look of the LOD bumper or not. Maybe I just have a little buyers remorse as the jeep has only been on the highway lately.

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.
