    on that college grind to live that jeep life!

    Hey all!

    Disclaimer, this is a long post lol

    TL;DR: jeeper that's currently jeepless wants to be in a jeep community and rambles on about herself.

    Before I introduce myself, I currently don't own a Jeep my mom had a '12 JKU deep cherry (deets in profile) that she traded in in february because we were consistently having heat issues so she got a subaru. There was casting sand that was never getting cleaned out completely whenever we brought it to the dealership and so it kept clogging the heat and we live in the north so... that's an issue lol. She just was getting sick of it and decided to trade in and couldn't find a wrangler out there that would fit what they wanted.

    I am jeepless at the moment BUT my family has always owned a jeep essentially (my dad had a CJ and a TJ, my mom had a TJ and two JKUs before the subie). My cousin owns a deep cherry JKU sahara, my uncle owns a YJ, and my other uncle owns a brick red JK (which i'd like to buy but that college life). I own an 08 hyundai sonata GLS that i meticulously take care of but hoping to sell after the end of the summer if I have enough money for a jeep.

    I joined because I'd like to stay in a community of jeepers and hopefully get a checklist of modifications to do once i get my wrangler! I'm also into other car things like autocross (solo 2) and I'm working at a racetrack over the summer to keep the jeep fund alive. This forum will hopefully help me keep my dreams alive

    A little about me... I am a full time student and I could probably sing along to every song played on a classic rock station. I enjoy reading and history and am trying to get into the STEM field. I hope to inspire more young women to get into the STEM and automotive industries one day

I hope to start my own YT channel eventually doing jeep vlogs and offroad adventures and I hope to inspire girls and women everywhere on getting into the STEM field and following their dreams.

    Haha no I wouldn't dare. I'm self made and self motivated so I wouldn't try to take views or people away from WAL. I don't promote or condone stealing someone else's audience or fire. I got a degree to work on anyway.

    Thank you to everyone else for the warm welcome!!

    Welcome aboard, just use your college fund to buy the Jeep. Jeeps are cooler than degrees anyway. Plus you can go into a trade like welding and build your own custom bumpers and whatnot. Seriously, post up some Jeep pics when you get one, and read as much tech here as you can in the mean time.

    I learned welding in high school, actually! Diagnostic genetics is more my thing though lol. Im want jeeping to be a therapy but! Hopefully either the end of summer this year or next year I'll have a build ready to go! I've been eyeing an 01 SE that's running general grabbers.

    Welcome! I know all about that "college life". Currently in my third year. It's tough to have an expensive hobby like this and go to school, but it's definitely possible. Save up your money and post up pictures when you get one! Good luck

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.
