    True statement! Pretty sure he ran out of beer and made the wine to keep his apostle buddies from getting into his bourbon stash.

    Ok I’m officially tired. But these are bad ass. Thanks to iRonin upgrading to full floaters on Thanos. Allowed me to save a few Ben Franklins.

    So besides the painstaking process of mounting my tires on the slabs, I finished up the driver side rocker panel. Spun one nursert. Have to do something about that but oh well.

    I also changed the oil and installed the Evo protek oil skid. Extremely happy about this mostly because. It went straight on with no problems in a short amount of time. Think it’s the first mod I’ve done go to plan. Lol.

    Still need to do transmission skid. But I was too worn out to get to that.

    First some Daystar hood latches to stop hood flutter. I'm too OCD and cannot stand the hood flutter. Amazed that FCA never fixed this.

    Second, Grabars. These are nice and sturdy now that they are on. But, holy crap, I have never been so pissed at 4 freaking bolts in my life. Took me way, way longer than it should have to get the drivers side put in. Also, dropped a bolt behind the pillar. Just going to leave it unless it starts rattling.

    Waiting to be put on. Evo tire carrier and Evo corner skids.
    Hahaha. I had the same problem with those bars. Lost a passenger side bolt behind the pillar. Used my fingers to pry the plastic back. I then tortured the fingers on my other hand squeezing them behind there to remove the bolt.

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.
