    FlatTop Build

    Been a semi active lurker on the site for 3+ years, I figured it’s high time I started a build thread. I started out following Eddie’s videos when I bought my 2009 JKU X and have been a fan since. Not many changes to that rig (35s with 2” BB and front and rear bumpers). My son now drives that Jeep after returning it to stock.

    12-07-2012 I ordered my 2013 Commando Green JKU Rubi December 7th of 12’ and took delivery on January 12th, 2013.

    With my son driving the 2009 JKU X and my wife a 2011 Grand Cherokee we were now a 3 Jeep family.

    My first mod was a swap of fenders, bumpers, wheels and tires between the 2009 and 2013. Stuffing 35’s at stock height was not that bad as long I did not bottom out at speed on the highway.

    Next I swapped the trimmed fenders on the two Jeeps.

    1-25-2013 My first order to Northridge included a ProCal module, Coast 1310 Front drive shaft and the Rock Krawler 3.5” Max Travel kit. Rock Krawler was in the middle of a location move at the time so it took over a month to get delivery.

    I got close to 4” of lift after the install. This thing was screaming for 37’s.

    Good looking rig. What gearing are you running in the stock Dana 44s? How do they handle with 37s on them?

    Running stock 4.10s. Houston area is flat so I really don't have problems. Much better than the old 3.8 with 3.73s and 35s.

    Let's just say there is a reason I'm no longer buying a pr44 this summer

    I also run 4.10's with the same tires, but your wheels are heavier. Great looking rig man.

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.
