    2017 SEMA UMC Universal Motor Company Teal Metallic Jeep CJ-5

    Toward the end of 2015, then President Obama signed into law new legislation that would allow "low volume car manufacturers" to produce as many as 325 replica vehicles for customers across the country. In other words, a manufacturer could start building something like an old Willys or CJ-5 and sell it as a new and as luck would have it, a company called UMC or Universal Motor Company will be doing just that and this is the early CJ-5 they brought out to the 2017 SEMA show. As you can see, this piece of new old iron comes complete with a modern 3.6L V6 Pentastar but you will also be able to order it as a rolling chassis. In fact, they will be making a CJ3A, a CJ-5 and a CJ-7 and the best part is, they won't cost you six figures. In fact, their rolling chassis are slated to run around $13,000 and turn key Jeeps will be selling at about $27,000. In other words, cheaper than a new Jeep or about the cost of a side-by-side UTV. This just might be the coolest thing I've seen at the show!

    Oh, that is so cool! I guess you’d be limited to a newer engine, if you needed to pass emissions, though. I’d love one with a 5.7L, fuel injected Chevy, but I’ll bet it would not be road legal in some states?

    Motech? Any thoughts?

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.
