    Then the next week we see pics of the interior and how it half-filled with muck. Then, requests for guidance and 'what could be wrong' when all manner of things stop working. If I had a trail-only beater I just didn't care about and wanted to beat up, fine. But most are daily drivers and their most significant asset. This past weekend, there were two award winners.

    Just hate seeing good equipment abused.
    Where was this at?

    That hurt to watch. Nothing like taking $80K and destroying it in a millisecond. Would love to know the after story, such as did the insurance company pay anything. Dumb. Just dumb.

    The driver had a compressed spine and some other very serious injuries. What you don't see in the vids now is the whole thing. There were several other trucks making the jump and if you jumped at about 40mph you would downside the jump, and all would be good. The guy in the Raptor made a couple of trial runs and slowed down enough not to get airborne. On the jump run he second guessed the needed speed and went faster, he hit the ramp at about 70 and overshot the landing by a couple truck lengths and destroyed his back and his truck. Notice how the tailgate even comes off!! I tried finding the full video but it is gone now. It was about 20 minutes long and had 5 or 6 trucks and some motorcycles 🏍 making the jump.

    Yeah, that jump was completely idiotic. Another fun fact (and I like some Fords) the Ford Raptors first few years in production had a serious problem with the frames going full taco after costumers went off roading. I'm sure they fixed it but I would not buy a Raptor (at least not for off road purposes).

    Okay maybe not full taco but defiantly unacceptable for a truck shown being jumped by the manufacturer. IMG_9584.JPG

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.
