    I definitely feel that! I'm finishing up my second year and hoping to transfer back to my first college for better opportunity/home state so i can continue working through the racing season and then some. Thank you for assuring me that it's possible though!

    Welcome to Wayalife bud. And don't feel like you're an odd one out just because you're in college. I'm in college and started a college based jeep group in my area because all the other groups had big rigs and did big rig things that our jeeps couldn't do (college budget and all). I run it with a couple of my buddies and we have a great time with our peers who own jeeps. You'll get you're jeep one day bro, and trust me when I say it's a dream come true.

    Welcome to WAL from a fellow college student, finished my first career and now working on an aerospace engineering degree WITH a full family...I share your dilemma... School is expensive, but I want Jeep parts... But I just finished paying off my Jeep in Feb. Also I still have no school debt either. Fill out every application you can for free $$$ I get some for the simple reason that I was the only one willing to fill out the application and write a 2-3 page paper on myself and aspirations. Just remember save for what you want don't settle for what you can get "right now".

    Edited because auto correct is evil.

    I am part of my college's car club and I'm currently in a KDM group with my car haha but there isn't a lot of serious wheeling around here. Most of the big rigs are mall crawlers, which I respect, but most of the wheelers around here are TJs.

    I have some debt but I'm trying to transfer back to my in state university for a better program. I'm not worried about paying off anything and I think I'll be able to build my dream jeep unfortunately I don't qualify for a lot of free dough because I am in a better situation financially that I'm grateful for... still annoying though lol. My current car is having transmission issues that worries me which is why Im trying to save for something right now since I currently have a 5.5 hr drive on major highways through four states if Im not able to transfer.

    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
    Welcome aboard

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.
