    Cool FACE OFF - Jeep JK Wrangler vs. Willys CJ3B

    It's hard to imagine that the Jeep JK Wrangler as we know it today originated from the humble little Willys CJ or "Civilian Jeep" way back in the 1940's. Born out of necessity, the Jeep has over the years grown in size, has become more capable and more comfortable and is without question, a lot safer to drive. Of course, this is to say nothing about all the new aftermarket products that are now available to help make them even more then they are right off the showroom floor. Thinking about all this, Cindy and I thought it would be fun to highlight just how far we've come and did so by taking a few face off photos between Rubicat, our highly modified 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited sitting on coil overs and 40x15.50 tires and Pappy, our bone stock 1954 Willys CJ3B sitting on factory leaf springs and 600x16 tires. What a difference!









    Now for the real question, which would you rather have?

    Pappy! I am looking forward to the day that I can get my hands on some old iron like that. Still so awesome that you were able to find it and in a close color to RubiCat.

    Thats awesome Eddie. Im probably gonna be the odd man out, but id take Rubicat hands down, and without hesitation. Nostalgic vehicles are definately cool to me, but id only own one if there just wasnt any other voids to fill.

    Love to have Pappy, but I would pick Rubicat without hesitation. We are thinking about adding 2nd JK to our garage.

    I would take pappy, but I need the Browning Option on it

    Rubicat is a great ride even without the Browning and I bet rides a little better on my old back.

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.
