    2017 Rubicon Hard Rock Edition Build of "Rocky"

    So I decided to get back into Jeeps. My previous jeep was a 2012 JK Sport. I could not stand all my friends with Rubicon's hitting a button to lock or discount their sway bars so this time around I was going to start with the best.

    This Rubicon is fully loaded. 4:10 gears, remote start, Nav, leather heated seats, steal bumpers and sliders, and so much more. Love this thing.

    So here is everything I have done to date and I will keep this up to date with everything we do.

    First mod was the winch plate and winch. I love to wheel solo so this is a must have. I went with the Smitty Wireless.

    I also wanted to modify the grill to look different from everyone else's, so I needed some teeth. Ha.

    Also took off the end caps on the bumper.

    For the interior I needed to install something that would not allow my phone to fall out when the doors are off which has happened. Let me tell you that the phone won't make it

    Also I wanted to be able to film easily and this was a the best thing I found.

    I also love weird stuff and needed a grenade as the shifter and a rock for the 4 wheel shifter.

    The other modifications I have done is taillight protectors for the trails, the stubby antenna so the trails don't catch my radio.

    Lastly, I installed 1.5 spacers to bring the wheels out more. I got these more for the future, since I plan to put 35 or 37s on there.

    Oh one more thing. I installed the Brand Motion backup camera that works with the factory radio. Not working right now and really needed it on the trails yesterday. Hope to get it working soon.

    Way more to come and here are a few more pics.

    Seeing the pics of your Jeep makes me want to pony up and buy a Hardrock hood for mine!

    Brand motion backup camera is working now. Don't try to ground a wire to plastic even if it has a medal screw. Blond moment.

    Nice looking Jeep. Question - what's different about a "Hard Rock" edition from a regular Rubicon?

    The hard rock has red trail rated badges, sticker out line, tow hooks front and rear. Red locker and sway bar buttons. Steel front and rear bumpers that are able to be built up. Black wheels with red jeep silhouettes on them.Factory leather and every option except colormatched top and fenders and a block heater I believe all factory and the power dome hood.

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.
