    Chrome makes your jeep faster?

    Hey guys so i need some input on this. So today I passed a JKU outfitted with the sickest chrome accessories but he didn't wave back! So I'm telling this to my buddy and he says he is either new to jeeping and doesn't know about the wave or he just didn't think my jeep was cool enough because I don't have any chrome accessories. But I think it was because all the chrome on his jeep gives him at least 700 extra hp and he was going so fast because of all the added boost that he didn't see me wave !!
    What do you guys think!?

    JKU Canada you're spot on! I guess since mine doesn't have the mall rated badge it's just not quite shinny enough to stand out

    What finger(s) did you have up when you waved at him?

    I think it was the thumb and the index and middle finger... Probably should have just floated him the bird, it might have waved back then

    When you waved at all that chrome you should have seen your own reflection waving back at you

    Did you check in the rear view mirror to see if he was OK? Very likely, when you waved, you deflected a lot of glare into,his eyes, followed by reflection onto his windshield, mirrors, etc. , followed by further reflection onto more chrome and subsequently starting a fire! I would check the news reports and papers??? Frankly, quite irresponsible of you

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.
