    I was comfortable, when I drove mine from Mississippi to California, and back. Now, they dont ride like a limousine, but it was comfortable.

    I agree, I drove 10 hours to windrock park. Got up the next morning, wheeled all day, then drove 10 hours back home that night. I think my Jeep is very fun to drive long distance.

Im going to order a prorock 44 housing. Gonna get rcv axle shafts but not sure about the locker. Id like to keep an Eaton elocker in it but know arb air lockers are better. From there Im gonna add 2 taller springs, teraflex falcon shocks, Adams driveshafts, aluminum skid plate from rock hard 4x4, raceline beadlocks, nitto ridge grapplers 37s. The 37s are for wheeling and Ill put the 33s on for going back and forth. I also have arb dual air compressor, warn zeon10s platinum winch, and front facing camera to install.

    I have to travel between Ohio and Georgia for work about a year to year and half till my daughter graduates high school and my wife moves down. Right now I have a 14jk polar edition with rock krawler 3.5 xfactor lift, race line beadlocks, 37s, prorock 44 unlimited front axle, dynatrac trail 60 rear axle, Adams 1350 driveshafts, evo protein skid plates, full psc hydro assist setup with their big bore box and cooler. It has more but you get the gist of it. I beat the hell out of this jeep on rocks wth no issues. Ben to rock garden @ creekbed at Rausch, black trails at windrock. I would like my JL to be able to do some of this stuff until Im done commuting in it and buy crate 60s and do the same to this my jk does.

    My main concern was the front JL axle breaking because of the hole from fad. Thanks for the info.
    I'm an Neo transplant to GA as well. I commute back and forth as infrequently as possible!

    The problem for me driving long distances was the hydro assist. It was so touchy I felt all over the place. Not only that but when its windy out for an 8 or 10 hour trip it sucks

    Now this I have to agree with. I drove mine through Wyoming on I-80 during a goddam blizzard. Driving a lifted vehicle with 50 mph crosswinds sucks elephant balls. I was all over the road and had trucks passing me going 80. Not fun.

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive 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.
