    2018 SEMA Rugged Ridge Orange 2-Door JL Wrangler

    Like so many companies these days, Rugged Ridge was bought out last year by an even bigger company, Truck Hero and I have to say that these kind of acquisitions kind of bum me out. Where there was once a host of companies at SEMA jockeying for prime real estate in the south hall, there are now only a handful with mega displays. The primary company dominates the floor and their newly acquired smaller companies get relegated to side booths. Rugged Ridge used to have pretty big display and with lots of products to show but now, they share their space with Superlift. But, I suppose that's just how the cookie crumbles.

    With all that said, I was glad to see that my friend Patrick was still working there and that he's still having a great time developing new products for the JL Wrangler. In addition to light protectors, rock doors, side steps, bumpers and a tire carrier all made specifically with the JL in mind, you'll be interested to know that he's also developing a 100% bolt on snorkel that requires no drill or cutting and installs in about an hour! Also, if you're like me - someone who wants to trim their fenders but want to keep their lights, he's even working on a kickass solution for that.

    Fenders look cool. Kind of a “Tron” effect.

    Usually not a big fan of snorkels, but this one is subtle and looks really clean. Now the fenders, they are awesome. I want a set!!

    Easily the best fender mod on a JL so far. Just in my opinion though.

    That color really pops on that jeep for some reason. Maybe at the gunmetal grey accessories.

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.
