    2018 SEMA Rancho JL Wranglers

    Being that Cindy and I have run Rancho products on our JL Wrangler and have been quite happy with them, we definitely wanted to make a stop over at their display to see what if anything they had new. And, I can tell you that what they brought out to show was impressive - an all new Crawler 3.5" lift kit that comes complete with heavy duty adjustable control arms, adjustable track bars front and rear and available with their all new long travel RS9000X shocks with DRS. The adjustable track bars really caught my eye but I was really impressed with their beefy control arms that are adjustable installed on your Jeep AND come with re-buildable spherical joints that offer a high degree of angle and rotation AND are maintenance free - as in, they don't need to be greased. They also had a new muffler delete pipe from Dynomax and you can see all this in our upcoming video. Here are some shots of the 3 JL's that they had on display.

















    I'm not gonna lie, all this GoRhino stuff is really starting to just look silly.


    Red 2-door on the lift.








    The blue on this JL Unlimited is really sharp.

    Think I need me one of these.


    A closer look at the joints.

    No set date. As soon as I find one I like and decide a $50k impulse buy is a good idea.

    I have always liked Rancho. Hoping this kit settles to closer to a 3” actual lift height and not 4”. Curious if the joints are gonna be comparable to jonny joints.

    Are the new 9000xl a 2.5” body shock totake advantage of the room on a JL?
    Matt

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

    N.S.D.Q.!

    18 JLUR -white, 13 JKUR - white (gone), 09 JKUR - white (sold), stock 85 CJ7 - red
    6 other 4x4 trucks (but only have 1 now).

    Digging that crawler kit. I already have the sport kit for my new JL after seeing you guys running it. Best bang for the buck.

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.
