    LOL! Now that would be something

    Cool, glad to hear my thoughts on the top 5 were in line with others like yourself

    2nd pick for me was the Baja Designs crew cab Jk.
    LOL! Oh yeah, it's sad to say but there was plenty of silliness out there for sure.

    Too funny, that thing really was a basket case.

    Nice picks!!
    This is true, they did at least "try" unlike others.

    Thanks! I'd be lying if I said it weren't work and enough so that we're left beat after the fact but we do love what we do.

    It was really nice but not really my thing. I'm sure it'd definitely make the top 5 for others like yourself though.

    I pretty much agree with all your list ďwinnersĒ. It feels like a lot of vendors (not all) are doing just enough this year, but biding their time for the JL. I donít blame them, but it made this show less of a showcase than in past years - while mid-cycle for the JK.

    That being said, there were some great builds and kudos to all the vendors associated with Wayalife. Theirs were some of the tops. I also really liked the ROAMR. A lot of it is what I envision a future JT to be in my driveway.

    Many thanks to Eddie and Cindy for wearing out multiple pairs of shoes (again) to share all the products and builds. Best coverage of SEMA anywhere!!

    I think I mostly agree with your list. A couple of differences for me.

    Good list: 1. Your coverage of Sema(THANKS). 2. ALL of the old classic iron, especially Omix-Ada and the tasteful builds of old iron.

    Bad: just so much to pick from, but you did well.

    Really liked the SFZ products and the Rex system is really a neat idea.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

    N.S.D.Q.!

    18 JLUR -white, 13 JKUR - white (gone), 09 JKUR - white (sold), stock 85 CJ7 - red
    6 other 4x4 trucks (but only have 1 now).

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
