    Agreed.

    Holy wow! Lol.

    My Jeep weighed 3940lbs the last time I weighed it. That was when I was a lot "stocker" and on 31s. Since then, I've added a sport cage, armor, skid plates, 33s, etc. I'm assuming around 4500lbs now.

    I want to weigh my Jeep now. I'm curious. I'm guessing it's around 6k with all the tools, etc. You just go to a landscaping rock yard? Or are there other places that weigh it?

    I went to a local trucking yard that leaves their scale open on the weekends. But, you could go to any big truck stop and use their scale. Usually they charge a few bucks, though.

    What is the GVWR for your tow vehicle? Make sure you are within limits and monitor your temps. I pull a travel trailer with my 1/2 ton Tahoe. Trailer brake, trans cooler were a must for me, cause we head from Yuma to San Diego and Julian on I-8. Pretty aggressive incline, but she does well. IMG_0731.jpg

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.
