    Hound's 17 JKU Gobi Build

    Hello, after awhile of being absent due to life I have returned. I have been into jeeps ever since I had bought my 89 YJ. Unfortunately life had other plans and I was forced to sell it. I didn't go that long before I bought my 98 XJ (I know not really a true jeep but I still had a lot of fun building and using it). Now jump forward to Oct 3rd when I went and signed the papers on a 2017 JKU Sport. I chose the sport because both passed jeeps started as base models that I built into what I wanted and felt that was the best way to go this time around. This is going to be a long time project since I really want to enjoy the jeep for what it is as I slowly build it up. I have a long wish list but still have a lot more time I'm going to put into researching what I want to do as I would like to only have to do it once. The general theme for the build is not going to be real crazy more of just a balanced build since I also am using it as a DD for now. I'm sure that will change as I start building since you can never keep things simple ha. I have already done my first addon which is Rugged Ride floor liners front to back. I had these in my XJ and really like how they perform. That is pretty much it for now until I get some time on it to see what I want to change out first. So time for a few pics.

    Thanks! I'm glad I went with the Gobi. The dealer was trying to get me into a silver one but out of all the ones on the lot the gobi stood out the most to me was the right choice.

    Congrats on the purchase! I love Gobi! If the wife and I get a JL that’s probably the color we’ll get. Looking forward to your build.

    Thanks! Got a lot of ideas with how to take it, that keep changing everyday. I think my first real investment will be to ditch the stock tires and get something with a more aggressive tread as the stockers are pretty much worthless especially in FL sugar sand.

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.
