    Glad you started a build thread! Is your cage body color match or black? Got more pics of it? That's on my build list for sometime this year

    I thought about color matching but ended up just going with matte black to match the interior as much as possible. It really goes well with the granite crystal exterior though. I ALMOST clear coated it because I really liked the unpolished looks of the cage by itself, but didn't want to chance not liking it after install. Don't have many pics but here's a couple more, I'll try to take more later.

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.
