    took a little time away from the Jeep this weekend to continue working on getting our new house set up.

    Super excited to finally have my own proper media room. it's been a dream for many years.

    i also met iRonin this weekend and picked up his ATX slabs since he's moving on to full floaters. still haven't decided if i will do the install myself or save the time and hassle and pay to have it done.

    lastly, i finally got back at work on my rocker skins. finally figured out a plan of action thanks to a number of helpful tips on this site. made some progress. the one closes to the front is jacked up. not sure if i will drill it out or leave it. we'll see how everything else holds.

    I'm assuming you're talking about mounting the tires? I would take the time and learn to do it myself.
    1) Unless you already have someone in mind that will do the install, good luck finding someplace that actually will.
    2) If you ever have an issue with tires, virtually every shop will get T-Rex arms if you ask them to change a tire or perform service on them.
    3) Peace of mind that if you ever do need to do anything with them you are actually familiar with them and how they go together.
    4) its a great time to spend with 5 tires, 5 wheels, and a 6-pack of your favorite brew

    Just my

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.
