    VIDEO : JL JOURNAL - First Look Behind the Fenders

    For those of you who’ve been wondering what lies just behind the fender liners of an all new Jeep JL Wrangler, this short video will give you a quick glimpse of what you can expect to see. Among other things, you'll get to see the new front shock towers that use through bolts instead of studs, the new aluminum steering box, electric power-steering pump which is also a part of the auto start/stop system, the new and safer location of the EVAP canister and outboard rear shock mounts.



    JL JOURNAL is a WAYALIFE Production with a focus on the all new Jeep JL Wrangler. This YouTube video series will highlight the build process of our JL as well as all the adventures both small and big that it takes us on. We hope that you follow us along on our journey.

    Just watched it....very interesting some of the changes. In a good way and maybe not so good. But I'm sure someone will figure out what can be done! Thank you 👍

    Interested to see if that harness gets in the way. Also do you think the evap will be in the way now as well? The location is good but has me worried for tire tuck

    The wiring harness on the passenger side rear fender well has me a little concerned if only because of the amount of hacking I've had to do on our JK's to keep a low center of gravity while running 40's. Granted, the fender openings on the JL are bigger than the JK so it might all be a non-issue.

    Great video journal! Very interesting changes! Maybe there will be an aftermarket shield designed to protect the wire harness?

    I'm kinda hoping that there won't be a need to remove the fender liner. That would take care of that

    As a matter of fact, yes it is Dynatrac's JL. They were kind enough to send us this footage so that we could make something of it.

    I think the EVAP is totally safe. Assuming the new bigger fender wells will clear 40's, I would think that the wiring harness should be fine. If trimming is required like the JK... well, I might have to figure out some kind of relocation of it.

    I hate the wait🙄

    Do you have a delivery date? I want to build a 4 door from scratch instead of redoing someone else’s idea of a build and the quality and standards they have or not....
    I’ll be following your build like a hawk and am probably more excited than you and Cindy....ok maybe not more.

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.
