    Jeep respect

    This is really just me thinking out loud.
    I don't drive my Wrangler at all during the week as I drive a company owned Prius. (Just typing that made me laugh!) Anyways, it's amazing the lack of respect on the road I receive in my Prius compared to my Jeep! People don't give two shits about cutting me off, not letting me merge onto the freeway, slamming on their brakes, ect. But in the Jeep, it's TOTALLY DIFFERENT! Nobody tries to cut in front of me, people don't speed up as I try to enter the freeway, and if they're going too slow in the fast lane, a look through their rearview mirror at the Evo stinger persuade them to change lanes. Maybe that's it, I need Evo to make a quarter pounder for the Prius! like I said, just me thinking out loud!

    That is a GREAT idea!!! I need a stinger for my wife's Civic. The little car might as well be invisible. Your right about the jeep though. It gets way more respect than the little rice rockets get.

    Jeep respect

    When I drive my wife's car she's always telling me, "they won't let you in, you're not in the jeep". Lol. You're right. A built up jeep gets much respect on the road.

    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    They sure, I drive my rig everyday and don't ever have people cutting me off or not letting me over if I need to get over. It's awesome I love. It's the way it should be, bigger vehicles get the rite of way everywhere

    your 100% right. Most of the time when i roll up behind somebody, they instantly change lanes like "oh shit, this guys gonna run me over".

    I've often wondered how 'traffic' would respond / react if put a BMW, Mercedes or Prius fender on my front bumper - kinda like advertising what happened to the last knucklehead that cut me off.
    Maybe a bumper sticker that says: "Smile as you go under".

    Anyway, have a Jeep Day.

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.
