    The Build & Travels of ORION

    Building a Jeep has always been a dream of mine.... And it was discovering Wayalife a couple of years ago that pushed me right over the edge.. I joined the forum pre-purchase, which ultimately helped me make my decision on what to buy and the direction Id like to take it. I have a lot to learn in building & off-roading... Im really excited to move forward.... And very thankful for Wayalife!

    Orion is a 2017 Rubicon Unlimited with 4.10s

    Nice to see you starting a build. That compressor is a good starting point.

    That's the crappy part! At least you don't have to run line for lockers though.

    I think Im going to keep it simple though... air outlet and a simple switch right at the compressor. Dont think I really need it in the cab just yet.

    Well, consider yourself lucky then. A lot of guys go all in right from the word go and then list their Jeeps for sale a year later.

    For sure... I was thinking why go in the cab every time I need to power it on/off when Im workin outside airing up the tires.. plus I see some type of SPod or other switch system in my future so I can maybe consolidate then...

    You might want to give a look at this guy here - Introducing-Central-Command!!!-Power-distribution-module-like-no-other!

    It looks pretty slick, offers more switch locations and is undoubtedly cheaper.

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive 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.
