    I always like reading about overland builds. Did one myself a couple of years ago. They tend to get heavy really quick. I ended up going to aluminum components were possible and ditched the roof rack for Yakima Sky Box. They are light, easy to remove and you can pack it without worrying about dirt or ice. I also installed a set of air ride helper bags, which work great for dual purpose rigs. Keep up the good work.

    I’m in the same boat weight-wise. Towing a camper that was close to max capacity with a very heavy JK started to seem like a bad idea.

    Since, I’ve dumped the full width front bumper and the Gobi rack is leaning against my house. That was probably good for 250# total.

    Yes sir. Was really on the fence between 4.88 & 5.13. Towing and no rubi tcase pushed me to 5.13s.

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.
