    Thank you ! I know you were, I need a jab to keep me awake.

    I will say one thing, now that I have been here reading and looking at other people's real rock crawler jeeps, I'm learning a little better what a real "rock crawler" looks like, so I can make it look. hopefully close to the real thing, plus it will crawl and there will be a video, if my legs can deal with bounding on the loose rocky terrain I have available for my mini's. I have close to 30 different ones.

    Great, that gives me a reason to do it.


    Now, tomorrow is Monday, this thing will probably sit for a few days while I acclimate to work once more...

    Looks awesome, I kinda like the flat gray primer. I've always liked flat painted cars but they got a bad rap so I've always steered clear.

    Thank you. I know what you mean, I always think about doing one flat black actually, but the closest I got was a satin black, sorta close.

    Its Monday night, no building tonight, so a video of that satin black blazer, its no longer mine, it moved to Idaho a year ago.

    @ 07JKSahara,

    I was digging around on my Flickr page this morning looking for a picture for something else and I found this, I forgot, I did do one in 2011 that I primered flat black before I painted it Rescue green.

    Both colors look cool. There's just something so sinister about flat black to me... But it's been kind of overused now. I still love it on classic muscle cars no matter what.

    Keep this thread going, it's cool to see all this.

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.
