    Decided on Nitto Trail Grappler M/T. Extremely quiet pulling out of the tire shop. Didn't realize how loud my BFG's were.

    Thanks! I know it would look better with custom wheels but that will have to wait. Think I'll use my money on other upgrades first. Should I ever decide to got to 37" will def get new wheels.

    Decided to make a tramp stamp and leave the spare in the garage. I'll bring the spare when I go on the trails.

    Here is some aluminum treadplate I got from works scrap bin.

    Here it is on Tucker! Left room to move the license plate.

    What Next?

    Ok, I'm looking for suggestions. I'm getting the gussets installed this coming weekend. Any ideas of what I should be saving up for next? Looking for more function than looks. I'll list some background first so everyone knows my intent:

    This is my daily driver.
    I only plan on wheeling a few times a year, many backroads in-between the park trips.
    Don't plan on any night trails but might want to upgrade some lights for getting off the trails at sunset.
    Enjoy rocks more than mud.
    Might bump up to 37's once these tires wear out (Which I know I would need a better front axle, PR44).
    Would like to get some good rock sliders.
    Need new front brake lines. Don't like the idea of bending factory hard lines.


    I'm more or less wanting ideas of what would be the best mod/item at this point in the build process.

    Do you have any armor? Bumpers/Sliders etc is what I'd do next.

    I put on an Evo crossmember plate. I'm glad I did. After a full day on rocks, it left proof that it was a good investment... And reasonably priced.

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.
