    XD wheels with 37" Procomp Xtreme MT2 tires- switched to Toyo open country tires and atx slabs. Bushwacker fenders- switched to psc aluminum. Costly mistakes for sure

Tried everything I could, short of anything that would have left apparent damage to them, and they weren't budging.

    So back they go
    Yeah it's a huge bummer that the spring blocks the key sometimes... I really don't like them

    Why pay for plastic flares when you can trim your factory ones?

    Not to mention they are a time-consuming install as well.

    I totally understand, but why not get a wheel with correct backspacing to counter the problem. My good friend steve, cozdude, approached this problem by staying with a 12.5" wide tire and opting for chamber pros instead of slabs to save himself over an inch on each side. When he cut his flares, he just tried to keep the trim as wide as possible. No rub or anything. I believe he just adjusted his turning radius slightly. I understand the "necessary evil" and i get it, to each their own. I was more less just trying to educate.

    Another 50 inch light victim. Everyone said it would whistle, but I was sure I would be the exception...nope. Took it off, cut it down and built a mount under the bull bar on the front bumper. Love having the extra light, and now no whistle...

    I read somewhere that if you tilt it down a couple degrees, the whistle goes away. False?

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.
