    New radiator

    Well at the dealer today to get all of my lugnuts replaced because they are swollen with those dumb chrome caps on them and to have them take a look at why my expansion tank is nearly enough empty and why I smell coolant... And I'm getting a new radiator under warranty because there are 3 fins that are leaking. Not bad on my 19 month old 2016 Rubicon... With 35600 miles.. glad I came in to get that looked at now before that magic 36k mark... Oh and this is the second time all the lugnuts are being replaced under warranty.

    It could be worse. I had a head replaced at 30k miles because of supposed low compression on cylinder 5. Then they put the wrong kind of coolant in the system and it started to cause cooling issues and somehow developed a pinhole leak in the heater hose that was spraying the exhaust header with coolant. Even after fixing all of that and the dealership steam cleaning the engine bay, the engine bay still smells like coolant when it gets hot outside.

    Honestly, this time I am happy with the service dept at the dealer. I was in and out in 3 hours and not a word about any money from me as I was covered still by the 3/36

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.
