    Hello from Michigan

    So I am jumping all in. I ordered a 19 JLUR. I have about five or so thousand dollars already spent on up grades for when it comes in. Most of the stuff that I have bought is because of this site and the JL site. I plan on off roading from Arizona to Alaska covering the western states. This adventure will start in three years when my wife retires. I retired last month.

    Over the next three years, we will fine tune our gear and skills. The Rubicon will go on a trailer behind the motor home and off we will go. I have been reading and taking pointers from the forum. Watching videos and making list.

    I am not new to off-roading. I have jeeped, snowmobiled, still ride ATVs and drive SxS on the trails here in Michigan, Tennessee, West Virginia, and been out to South Dakota. I usually am the trail leader and have organised many group rides. I have road motorcycles through 46 of the lower 48 states. Love camping, shooting guns and doing adventure stuff. Oooo and good bourbon on occasion.

    I showed my wife some of the Jeeping videos and she is all in also. She is cool and a wonderful wife of 29 + years. She and I just love to travel and see the sites. We are looking forward to drinking fresh brewed Black Rifle Coffee above the tree line in the mountains watching the sunset or sunrise.

    Hope to see you guys and gals on the trails.

    That’s a great way to spend your retirement! I’m over in Rochester, Mi if you want to take the JL out on shake down cruise once it arrives!

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.
