    I have drove seems millions of miles and brakes failures are common from inexperienced drivers. Steady even pressure is the key to keeping brakes cool. And always use gears before brakes the hill you talk about I've hauled overweight loads down talking over 100 k and never had hot brakes kept speed down around ten the whole pass. Steady even pressure when it would run up. To twenty. Then gears to speed again never got the brakes smoking at all. Jab them on creates ten times the heat and you cannot she'd that much heat in short distance especially in warm weather. Usually not even in winter.

    If the brakes are hot enough to start bellowing smoke, and you pull over. The chances of a fire are much greater.

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.
