    After a bunch of research, Iíve gone for a shackle reversal on my scrambler build. Itíll be interesting to see how she climbs and handles.

    Yeah we really considered it. Coming from a 2013 Rubicon to an 88 with leafs the idea of better ride quality was tempting. The wheelbase of the scrambler is awesome. We stretched the YJ 4” from stock for a bit more goodness.

    Growing up I always loved the Mickey Thompson Classic II look.

    A lot of progress going down on the YJ project. Finally back in CT. The motor is mounted. Frame and body are rust free. Only left to do is literally everything else. Axles need to be centered, pinion angle set and perches welded in. Iíve got to build the steering, install fuel and brake lines, all the wiring and figure out where to put the gas can.

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.
