    Back in a Jeep - new Gladiator Rubicon owner

    Hello everyone! A few of you may remember me, as I used to have an Anvil EVO Built ‘15 JKU Rubicon on 40s. I sold it to MTG back in 2017 to buy a new Charger Hellcat.

    Prior to that I had my ‘08 JKU Rubicon on a Teraflex 3” LCG long arm suspension and 37s that I owned for quit awhile. Having a 707hp 4 door sedan that went 0-60 in less than 3.5 seconds was fun, but I really missed my Jeep. I debated getting a JLU Rubicon, but ended up passing on it to hold out for a Gladiator.

    I’m glad to say that today I am back in a Jeep! Picked up a new Gladiator Rubicon today at a local PA dealer for what I felt was a great deal (just below invoice). Has leather seats, Falken M/T 33” tires, 8.4” uconnect, the works. I believe the only options not on it are the dual top and steel front bumper options. I could’ve picked up a Launch sedition in the same color that had the steel bunker, but passed because it didn’t have the M/T tires. This thing is awesome. It’s SOOOOO much better than the interior in my ‘15 JKU. I wasn’t a huge fan of the 3.6/A580 combo in that JK, but the 3.6 and 8 speed auto in the JT is perfect, at least on a stock truck. Enough talking. It a great to be back, and I look forward to seeing some of you on the trails. Onto the pics!

    Not at the moment. I plan to drive it for a year before going crazy. I moved back home to PA and no longer live in AZ. IMO the trails we have here don’t require such an extreme Jeep such as my last one. At the most maybe some Dana 60 axles and 40” tires, but probably just on a plain old coil and shock lift like the one from EVO Mfg. I want to put a roof top tent on the bed that will open up to the side, like the ARB one, and use this truck to get out into rugged and remote areas for camping trips with the kids.

    Chambersburg, PA. I grew up here. It’s about a half hour - 40 min north of Hagerstown, MD.

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.
