    I'm starting to get really excited about the JL truck. Really interested in seeing what the towing capacity ends up being.

However, when I went up to 37's, the spare had to go into the bed...while it made changing out the spare easier, there was a slight change to the cog...but not much.
    I've been giving this some thought and now at a crossroads as to whether get a new JT pu or modify my Brute...after seeing what Dynatrac did to a brand new JL, I'm thinking of doing something similar to a JT pu with 40's...but if the wheelbase is the same as the Brute, and they don't offer a diesel, I may just change up the Brute...remove the sf rear pr60 and pr44 front and install a ff prxd 60's, regear to 5:38, remove the aev suspension and install a dtd front and king coilovers rear...move the aux fuel tank into the bed and chop 10-12" off the bed for better departure angle...remove the front & rear bumpers and go with stubbies...psc hydro assist & progrip brakes...

    I would also consider a Norweld aluminum tray bed to increase departure angle...

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.
