    So at what point does is a Jeep no longer able to drive across country to the trail? Is it a certain tire size, engine mileage? Something else ?

    I think it’s gonna depend on the upkeep and upgrades you do to it. Mine is 2010 with 120k on it and we are driving it to Moab next month from Alabama.

    I think there are a lot more factors than just the capability of the Jeep to make the run.

    For me it’s come down to where I live and the shear distance it will take me to get to challenging trails. From Detroit to Moab is 32 hours. The closer destinations like Drummond, Windrock and Rausch Creek are 7-8 hrs. There are just a few parks within a could hours, but their nothing special.

    If I were to break down in anyway, I’d have leave the Jeep and rent a car to get back. My work schedule leaves me with limited time to be gone and to add a few unplanned days waiting on parts, isn’t an option. It’s better for me to drag it back up on the trailer and get it home on schedule and deal with it there.

    The last factor was my wife and daughter what to start coming with us, especially as we start venturing out west. She has no desire to spends days out on the trails, but with the Ram there, she can go off and tour while we are out in the Jeep.

    Just my Two Cents.

    For me it all depends on how hard you want to play.

    I can't imagine being all the way in Moab (1200 miles from home) and having something happen that made it so I couldn't drive home.

    I still have no worries taking my Jeep cross country. I even have a trip planned to do the passes in Colorado this summer. I just like the peace of mind that comes with having a way to get myself and the Jeep home.

    One other thing... Comfort. No matter how good the Jeep rides and how nice the leather seats are.... A Limited Ram is always going to be more comfortable!

    Nice, the interiors are just so nice, cant decide yet between a fully loaded Laramie black or a limited. Price wont be to far apart.

    The black head liner and leather covered EVERYTHING make the Limited my only choice! So nice!

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.
