    The Flying Dutchmen!

    Hey guys so I recently bought a 2012 JKU. I thought I was saving some money because it has a 4in Pro Comp Short Arm lift... However, you fine gentlemen have shown me and educated me in the ways of a correct lift. That being said I am just going to redo everything. So this will be the official start of my build.

    Modifications: (Once I purchase them I will BOLD them)
    EVO MFG ENFORCER
    EVO 1/4 Pounder
    EVO Rock Sliders
    Bushwacker Flat Fenders
    EVO Skid plates and Armor
    EVO Side Rock Skins
    EVO Rear Rock Skins
    EVO Tire Carrier
    Adams Front 1310 Drive Shaft
    Adams Rear 1350 Drive Shaft
    Pro Rock 60's Front and Rear
    Truck Lite Headlights
    KC LED Spot lights
    Warn Zeon 10s Winch
    Cobra 29 with 4' Firestick Antenna
    Trek Armor Seat Covers
    Nitto 37" Trail Grapplers
    ATX Beadlock Slabs 17"
    More to follow I am sure image1.jpg

    Good looking rig! Nice parts list as well! I just installed the Cobra 75, I like that its a really clean setup inside. If you are still undecided on a CB, might want to check it out.

    On another note, I just noticed your on Oahu. How do you like it? I'll be moving there around early/mid next year.

    Love your placement. Where did you end up putting the CB?

    Ok gals and gents!

    This weekend with the help of some friends I was able to install my EVO Enforcer 4" with King 2.0 spec shocks, Adams Front Drive Shaft, Drag Link Flip Kit and I was able to start on my homemade front stubby bumper.

    Got the Coils and Shocks removed.

    Drilling the hole for the new bump stop

    Boring out the hole for the Drag Link Flip Kit.

    Got the Drag Link Flip installed.

    Getting started on the rear

    I got the rear coils and shocks in place as well as the steel brake lines.

    Starting on my homemade front bumper. (More pics on that to follow)

    I will get the before and after pics up tomorrow as well as the pics of the new Adams Drive Shaft.

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.
