    Haters gonna hate. YJ was the first Jeep to be called a Wrangler. I think Jeep made the headlights square for the one model just to watch jeepers tear each other apart.

    Awkward Jeep Wave?

    When I first bought my 2011 Jeep I didn't know about the wave. I quickly realized its a Jeep thing! I always wave. I figure that the people who don't wave either don't get it or don't love their Jeep as much we do! Like, I tell my wife "I make new Jeep friends everyday."

    Seems reasonable. Haha. I've just never in my life understood the square headlights. Some people love, some hate it. I just happen to be one who doesn't like it. In my opinion, they changed away from square headlights for a reason.

I'll occasionally drive my moms minivan (embarrassing enough as is) and wave to a Jeep and think, DOH! But more often than not I get the ugly looks from people thinking who the hell is this kid.

    Why the hate for the YJ brother? you do know the YJ was the FIRST wrangler. Now if you had said Circle = jeep, I would have to agree with you, I don't know why chrysler had to F up that part of it. I still love my little YJ, love at first sight. it took me a couple of years of dating to fall in love with my JKU.

    I don't prefer squares, but I've grown to like them. But I agree, why the heck did they randomly give them squares?? Maybe just for Jurrassic Park? lol

    Yes I do know the YJ was the first Wrangler. But also, I'm not even 20 years old. So for me when I first started getting into Jeeps, the TJ had circle headlights. That's probably the main reason I dislike the YJ. Don't get me wrong, if the YJ didn't have the square headlights I'd love them. It's just a matter of what I grew up with.

    At least we don't drive FJ's with round headlights. Haha. Take the good with the bad.

    I grew up with a YJ. So it may be an upbringing thing. But there's one thing we know it is for sure...a way of life.

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.
