    The video I saw of the military version was just a frame without a body but it went off a 2 meter ledge like a trophy truck. They're not saying a JK could do that but they do hope to implement some of the same technology.

    Wow. Love seeing something new like this. Wonder if it comes in different gear ratios. Per their website, the Pumpkins look like they come with the kit. If it comes in pink, I think I can convince the wife that her daily driver needs this.

    Sure "looks" heavy. Do you know if it is aluminum?

    Assuming they can partner up with a company like Dana, you would be able to run any gear ratio made for it.

    I'm pretty sure it's steel but if you think about it, the IFS eliminates a crazy heavy SOLID axle and depending on your build, heavy long arms. Typically, IFS is lighter than a solid axle setup even with all that you're seeing.

    First, I have to say how impressed I am with the self contained, bolt on style of the kit. It looks to have a lot of creative, as well as, functional design and strength.
    I would like to see how larger tire sizes, 40+, affect the overall movement and articulation of such a design.
    Second, well I'm truy impressed and more than a little interested. Will keep my eyes and ears open for where this company goes.
    Already jealous as to your comment on the military version you got to see Eddie.
    Thank you for the great pictures and commentary.
    Courtesy is given. Respect is Earned.

    It looks cool and all, but why not buy an FJ?

    Because an FJ could never hope to have 20" of vertical travel. Just to put things into perspective, Moby and Rubicat only have 14".

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.
