    Work carefully, keep the surrounding plastic supported and you'll be fine!

    Thanks! We will see if it really "fixes" the issue. So far, so good.

    Edit: Yes, after four days I can confirm that changing the handle from 20 degrees above horizontal to horizontal has fixed the issue! I was dragging my butt across the handle when exiting the vehicle.

    Snow squalls and white outs yesterday, sunny and 60 today. Wisconsin weather in a nutshell, wacky! Oscar got all the new salt rinsed off and I'm really loving the hard top lift! Makes me wan't to pull it off every chance I get even if it's just for a few hours!

    Btw all the windows were down as soon as I hit the street! I'm not one of those with the top off and windows up so my hair doesn't get messed up!

    Looks like a solid hardtop hoist! I'm just waiting for some warmer weather (weather that will stay consistent for at least 2 days; none of this 60/30/rain/snow/sleet junk) to put my new kayak hoists up.

    Oscar's No Build Thread

    I heard that spring might be coming to Wisconsin later this week. Getting ready by mounting the bike rack from the KK to the JKU. The spare tire on the KK's are under so it required some cutting, grinding and drilling to clear the spare and swing gate. Ready to go!

    In preparation for our camping trip we removed the front air dam and disconnected the sway bar links so we could test Oscars flex. This poser shot sure makes that 14" rock look small! Hopefully we can find a good trail near Lakewood, Wisconsin to further test the Jeep's capabilities.

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.
