    2018 SEMA AEV Blue & Yellow JL Wranglers

    When it comes to quality overlanding Jeep products, AEV has always been a SEMA Show favorite and for 2018, they brought out 2 JL Wranglers to highlight some of the new products they're making for it. Not so surprisingly, this would include a 2.5" lift with triple rate coils, a snorkel and new and improved front and rear bumpers. Now, what I personally wasn't expecting to see is a slight shift toward guys who like to play on the rocks and that's by offering their front bumper as a modular unit and one that can be run as a stubby! The rear bumper also no longer has a water tank but now has a cool fold down step. Overall, both have been designed with the JL in mind and I have to say, everything looked really nice.

    Here's a couple of shots of the 4-door they brought out featuring a their full width bumper and snorkel.




    Here's a shot of the new JL rear bumper.


    Fold down step and optional license plate mount.




    And here's their 2-door flexing out.


    As you can see, it's running their front bumper as a stubby.






    Check out the light bar mount behind the skid.

    That Pioneer roof rack does overhang quite a bit...was that on purpose, like a tree rail to protect the roof?...also, the bull bar on the bumper is massive...and it looks modular as well

    Always clean. Always well designed.

    I really do like the stubby on the blue! I may end up cutting mine back to look something like that

    As much as I thought that water tank in the bumper was “clever” idea but not really functional when I first bought my Jeep, we really used it a ton from cleaning up after a muddy recoveries to washing out mud filled radiators when jeeps overheated. It is a bit of a rock magnet coming off ledges, but I kinda wish they kept it.

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.
