    Genright also increased their prices by 5%. They stated the price of steel increased so they have to adjust due to that.

    As long as it’s putting more Americans to work then it’s all good by me

    Let’s do some math. Anyone with exact numbers jump in and correct this example. First, most import steel is slab carbon steel at about $0.25 a pound. Let’s say someone makes a 10 pound part with 10% scrap. 11 x $.25= $2.75 in import steel. Add a 25% tariff and it costs 69 cents more. There are a lot of reasons why people raise prices and it is not always what the media tells you. In California I assure you government regulators cost more that the steel.

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.
