    I dunno. I'm sure it's just me but for $80K, I think I'd at least want to have among other things, a top, a windshield, AC, a stereo, rear cargo space, a little better than 3 MPG, a Jeep that gets used more than 4 times a year and doesn't need to be trailered everywhere.

    Haha well said. Yea, evo1 is an awesome jeep no doubt about it...but a little bit impractical to say the least.

    Definitely build. That is half the fun. I would spend the $44,000 on a loaded Rubicon, spend another $2,000 on nice tools and then use the other $34,000 for bolt on coilovers, bumpers, some interior mods, wheels/tires, and other exterior mods like armor.

    Id build, I would start with a used mall crawler some soccer mom drove. Get a 13/14 model year and buy exactly what I need and do it in stages so you know you arent over building for what you want.

    Example, I have zero interest to bomb through the desert. So a 44/60 combo is more than enough, but id do a 60/60 for insurance.

    Does buying a new one and dropping it off at ORE constitute building or buying?

    At least you're the one ordering the pizza, so to speak.

    Build!

    I know that I have had some of my most fun jeep times in a shop with my best friends tearing our jeeps apart and installing the parts we waited to get in the mail. That is half of the experience to me.

    Build for me! As Ddays said, I don't want a bag of someone else's mistakes, no matter how pretty they are.

    Build my own hands down!

    There is so much fun and excitement that comes with picking everything out yourself even waiting for brown Santa to drop off a part that you've ordered. Additionally, you have the peace of mind knowing what's been done to the Jeep.

    There is only one exception I would make where I would purchase a build. There's a small handful of Mopar underground builds that I really love for example, the lower 40 and the chief. It would be awesome to own those. That said, I may not feel comfortable taking them on all the trails that I would take my jeep on and it's still more exciting to have built them yourself.

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.
