A final plus on the trailer is that you will have far more carrying capacity than anything on or in the vehicle could match.

    If it were a JKU, there might be some trailer-less options but I couldn't see doing it any other way in my 2001 TJ.
    this. Having gone both routes, having a properly built trailer to set up as basecamp and have excursions from is better.

    Buddy of mine offered this up for a pretty solid price. I think it would be a solid platform to start with.

    Looks perfect!! If the axle is in good shape, etc. then you'll be able to do great things with it! Might look at extending the tongue just a bit but that's totally nitpicking!

    I’d like to extend the tongue, add some upper racks for my kayaks, fab up some kind of lid, repaint, etc

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.
