    06 lj

    Bought my first Jeep. An 06 wrangler unlimited LJ. What are some of the first things usually done to start going off road or on trails?

    High clearance cross member and gas tank skid.... cross member skid is like adding a lift, ground clearance and break over and the gas tank skid because the fuel pump is in the tank and the factory skid caves in easy.

    Congratulations also.

    Yep, what he said. Some sort of tummy tuck to bring that giant shovel up a little higher.

    Hmmm idk if I would spend too much money on an aftermarket gas tank skid... I have slammed mine about... well every time I come off a ledge and it is still holding up perfectly. Only has scratches.

    Good check of fluids, tune up if needed and check for solid recovery points front and rear. Recovery gear. Check / replace tires, get out and wheel. Learn the jeep and it’s capabilities and establish a game plan as you learn it’s limits.

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.
