The heart is assembled in Mexico (as Eaton makes it specific for us, to our specifications, and isn’t sold in the same configuration to the gen pop). We however build everything else and assemble it right here in Bountiful Utah. Our other products come from USA, and again assembled, piece by piece. There are no “shipping containers” on site. Just a guy trying to make a buck working his ass off, and trying to keep things in the USA.

    We are approached every day by companies to do our parts OUS. Could we make more margins by doing so? YEP! But we choose not to. With regards to the other companies...... any other company...... no comment because it’s not my place. Jeep on!

    I work for an OEM and from my end, we have a large degree of importing in everything that we slap our name on. Economies of scale and needed capacity being the drivers because we are building hundreds of thousands if not millions of units per year for a customers with requirements to fulfill in various global locations. From the aftermarket side, I can imagine how things are viewed a wee bit differently because companies like yours build in smaller batch-type quantities (I'm guessing here) for niche customers (like..well...Jeepers).

    I share your positions on keeping things close to home, I really do BUT I am also focused on quality/cost/payment terms/etc. I've seen US based suppliers be passed over for POs because they've dropped the ball too many times; even though the cost difference from a comparable central Asian supplier was not that huge. Crudely put: Company full of dumbasses wouldn't read the torque specs in the drawings; didn't even know what a newton was . Indian company performed this better so..they won. Just sad.

    I sometimes wonder where primary education as a whole has gone in this country because of stuff like that.

    I love your JK doors BTW. How well is the water seal on those? I've been trying to avoid the $3k Mopar route.

    Something else to play with if any of you find yourselves really (sigh..really) bored:

    I was a little sad to see a few companies I like on there. I didn't find Dynatrac, Evo, or SFZ though.

    Really thought that this forum was for all jeepers, but then the slandering and name calling of other companies and trying to say that only your sponsored EVO jk and only EVO is the way to go.
    Grown men bickering like little girls.

    I just looked through this entire thread and only found one mention of EVO and the poster DID NOT say that EVO was the only way to go.

    But since that's all that you got out of it, I'm sure you and Dennis will become best buddies.

    I saw a bunch of kidding around, by members, until ctznarcane jumped in, then the comments were directed at him.

    What exactly do people think they are signing up for. It's an Internet forum for god's sake. Maybe you'll learn something. Maybe you'll meet some cool people. Maybe make a few friends. Maybe not for some. Feel sorry for those who can't adapt to these facts and stick it out. They are missing out.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Exactly. There are going to be differences of opinion, and people poking fun.

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.
