    Your Jeep is looking great! That bumper does look beefy, but Motobilt's ethics and values leave more to be desired. You can read about it here: https://wayalife.com/showthread.php/...ustry-MOTOBILT

    Never saw that thread. Not much came up on searches about the. In fact, I've only seen 1 of these bumpers installed on a forum. That was over on wranglerforum. but, I really like the way it looks and the checking over the welds it looks great. Funny that thread was about D ring attachments. That was one of the things I liked about their build as they go through the bumper itself like Shrockworks.

    Yeah, it looks beefy - I've never seen one in person. In fact, I had never heard of them before seeing that thread. I don't care how stout their bumper may be, the way they handled themselves was quite unprofessional and will never get any of my business.

    Sorry for being a debbie downer on your thread... it does look good, and I'm glad you're happy with it

    Bumper back from powdercoat and installed.

    Also got my new to Evo pro rear bumper back from powdercoat. Bought used from forum member. Decided to have it stripped and color matched to my front. The powder coater I use in Austin cut me an amazing deal.

    Will get the Evo bumper installed and pictures put up hopefully tonight.

    Got the Evo Rear bolted up. My powder coat guy did an absolutely great job. Things are starting to come together.

    thanks. as you can see from the pic, i'm doing this in a condo garage. i'm starting to go stir crazy here. really hoping we don't have anymore delays on our house. 3 car garage is going to be so nice.

    that's when i will get to work on the suspension.

    thanks. i'll have a new tire to add to the true tire size as well. i'm trying out the new Yokohama Geo MT 003 in 35x12.5r17.

    hoping to get them mounted and balanced this weekend.

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.
