    New JL owner

    I had a 2014 JK and sold it more than a year ago and bought a Tacoma ( I know WTF) however at the time I was tired of the JK and wanted something different. My wife's DD is a F250 (Diesel) and not very commuter friendly, especially stop and go and only 7 miles for her to get to work. So if we are getting another vehicle it should be dual purpose right.......went to the dealer yesterday to look and bought a 2018 JL Rubicon 2 door. We didn't need the 4 door since we have the Tacoma and Ford. It is only the 2 of us plus our dog. We drove home, grabbed the dog and hit the trails in Big Bear............no mall crawling here, It was pretty cool to drive a brand new vehicle from the dealer to the dirt where it belongs. We plan on using it for what it is built for. Gotta say, we love it! What an upgrade from the JK. Everything feels so much more refined and seems the quality is back. Looking forward to talking and learning with everyone about the new JL's. I have been watching Eddies's videos and I think I will pick up a set of LOD sliders if they make them for the 2 door. Here are some pics.

    Nice! I like the look of a stock JL 2 door more than the stock JK. Welcome back to the Jeep family! 🍻

    Welcome to WAYALIFE! The 2-door JL's really do look so much nicer than the 2-door JK's did bone stock.

    Thanks, this time around didn't see a need for the 4 door. We are loving the 2 door.

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.
