    OK, I took the plunge....

    OK, so taking the plunge and doing some nice upgrades to XBL4DEX. Guys, thanks for all your help.

    EVO 4" Double D
    EVO SPEC Shock
    ATX SLAB 17"
    37" Nitto Trail Graplers
    EVO MFG PROTEK D30 FRONT AXLE TRUSS AND C2 GUSSETS - JK
    1350 drive shaft
    5.13 ratio gear

    Not sure what I will do with the Fenders yet but I will see..

    I'm also considering a JK HARD ROCK SPORTS CAGE after seeing the giveaway promo. It seems like a really quality built product. I saw some of you guys have them in your rigs. I checked their site and it looks like they come Bare... 3 questions :

    1) how should I go about getting them painted to my liking. I'm thinking ANVIL or a CHARCOAL color

    2) I have a sound bar speaker Alpine system. Will this work with the SPORTS cage?

    3) It looks super easy to install. How have your experiences been?

    Super easy install with the sport cage. The hardest part was the trimming of the dash. I highly recommend that you test fit first before painting or powder coating. If you paint hit it with self etching primer first.

    The lower speakers are not affected but if you plan on changing them out I would do it before final install. You should also be fine with your tweeters as they point up unlike the tombstone tweets, but the crossbar is angled high enough where they don't interfere. The sound bar across the b-pillar is not affected, just some minor drilling and you have to remove it to bolt on the center pieces. I have a 14 with no issues. Also you don't get the rear center piece with the main kit, you'll need a separate order. CB fits nicely in the center with a KC light mount. Credit to Eddie on that one.

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.
