    That's one of the downsides to the Raptor. Its max tow rating is 8k.

    2" Bilstein leveling Shock up front with 33's is a great setup if you don't want to go up to 35's. Handles like Stock. They look really good on 35's though.

    Well getting it in the garage after lifting it is our main concern. And I can’t decide on basic kit or coil overs up front.

    For EJS this year I borrowed a 38" lowboy gooseneck and hauled two jeeps in my pop's '04 Chevy 3500 Duramax. Those inclines between Phoenix and flagstaff were a game between keeping speed and keeping the transmission temp down. Often plummeting to 20-25mph. It was stressful and slow going, but it got the job done.

    This trip ended up building my "want" for a truck of my own now that the Jeep is no longer suitable as a daily driver. I originally wanted a basic leftover '18 Ram 2500 Cummins Regular Cab short bed, but ended up with a '19 quad-cab short bed Laramie only cause I just loved the truck and options. I've not pulled anything yet, but I'm happy with it thus far.

    Well.... I have been talking about it for a while and it finally happened.

    Last Wednesday night I flew into Denver and picked up this 2019 3500 DRW Laramie Limited.

    After towing the JKU to Sand Hollow I could tell it would be too much for my truck to haul behind the camper. It was time to step up to a dually!

    On the way home I also picked up a 30+5 22GN Big Tex. Should be just long enough to pack two JKU's. Also plenty of room for my camper and JKU.

    That is such a sweet setup! I can’t get over how big those touch screens have gotten. That should give you a lot more confidence towing in the mountains, congrats!

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.
