    2017 SEMA KargoMaster Granite Crystal Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited

    Years ago, Cindy and I used to run a KargoMaster Congo Cage roof rack system on our old 2000 Jeep TJ Wrangler. Back then, it was the only real way you could take your family, dog and all your gear out exploring for more than a day and we loved it. Since that time, they've improved their roof rack system for the JK and came out with other products as well. This Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited is what they brought out to the 2017 SEMA show and really, it's the same Jeep they brought out the year before so there isn't much, if anything new to see. Just the same FabFours air flow blocking front bumper, rocker guards and rear bumper tire carrier. It also features DTF Offroad Wheels that look nice but I personally have to wonder what exactly makes them "offroad".

    I like the metal grain look of the wrap on the doors and the copper bolts they used in the door hinges to match the wheel color.

    How much weight can those steps on he hinges realistically take?

    I think the “off road” wheels are just their version of off road, like compared to white 26” wheels option, And remember everyone has a different idea of what off roading wheeling is

    They make some nice racks but that doesn’t show one of the nice ones. Lol

    Love my Congo Pro rack. Looks like they had to build custom mounts because of the short rear bumper though.

    I've still got that platform they're running there for sale (none of the rails, just the platform) if anyone's interested. 😎

    Overall not a bad looking rig, just cant stand the big wheels on these things.

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.
