    The upcoming build of Rincon

    Well I've just ordered a ton of parts for upcoming build of my 2017 Rhino Grey Rubicon. I've finally settled on the name Rincon after one of the western most Beaches in Puerto Rico where my wife and I finished off and entire bottle of Don Q Rum as we played in the waves and watched the sunset on "La Isla Bonita." I figured the name Rincon appropriate as in some cases it means outermost peak, which she can definitely get us to.

    Before:

    Thanks!! That was two beers in. Needed a little liquid courage to get it started. Don't even have the plates on it yet.

    Getting impatient as I wait for parts to be shipped so I'm trying to get as much done in the meantime. I ran the Firestick CB Antenna cable from the CB which I mounted next to the center console. Took my time with it as following the OEM wire harness and fed the cable thru the mesh loom at the rear door for a completely seamless install. Now I'm just waiting for the LOD rear bumper w/ tire carrier and antenna mount to show up so I can finish the install. Need to read up on where to draw power from for the CB.

    Its been a while since I've started my build. I've only got about 8k miles on it but I've been busy. A ton has changed since I started.

    This has got to be the best sight I've ever seen, better than Christmas!!!

    Started with the Rear Coilover install. Once I started cutting the nervousness melted away. I found using a Sawzall much easierto use than the cutting wheel.

    Looks like your delivery guy was as excited as mine hauling a thousand pounds of Jeep goodness. I'm almost done installing my Evo coilovers and I'm the complete opposite of you with the rear install. I got tired of bent Sawzall blades and used a cutoff wheel. Looking good and I'll be following your build.

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.
