    Rubicon Recon Edition: "Stronger front axle"

    Wondering if anyone has heard about this or seen a pic of what they have apparently upgraded. I wonder if this will be the new standard for the JL?

    Based on the Wrangler Rubicon model, the Rubicon Recon Edition ups the off-road ante with a front axle upgrade that features strengthened tubes and heavy-duty end forgings

    Saw this earlier. Seems like Jeep took the Rubicon and found it's weak points and are trying to fix some of them. To me, it's still cheaper to buy a sport and build it yourself

    Orrrrr.... Just buy a TJ

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.
